Where did Cain get his wife?
Every how and then someone will
ask me that question; then, pleased 1
with himself for having discovered an j
‘‘irreconcilable contradiction” in the:
Bible that no one had ever noticed be-j
fore, will sit back and wait for me
to stumble around in utter confusion.;
The question itself betrays a petty i
spirit, so utterly foreign to that of i
honest inquiry, that I am often tempt- 1
ed to repeat Billy Sunday’s classic an-1
swer to it: “Brother, don’t let your
interest in another man’s wife keep|
you out of heaven.” However, it is
typical of the so-called contradictions
in the Bible, and perhaps an answer to
it here Will be of help to some.
Where did Cain get his wife? Those
who labor to find a contradiction in
the Bible here reason in this manner:
“The Bible says there were only two
children bom to Adam and Eve, Cain
and Abel, both boys. These were their
first children, and their only'children
up until this time. Since Abel hadl
been killed, there were only three hu
mans alive on the earth: Adam, his
wife Eve, and their son, Cain. Yet
Cain went to the land of Nod and took
! unto himself a wife. Where did she

First of all. Cain and Abel were not 1

I them He said, “Be fruitful, and niul-i

quoted as saying, “Therefore shall a

we read, “And Adam called his wife’s

Garden of Eden, and all of these'
Scriptures are taken from the first
three chapters of Genesis. We do not :
read of the births of Cain and Abel
until the fourth chapter of Genesis.
These two boys were born after their
parents had been expelled from the |
Garden of Eden.
Why are these children not men-j
tioned by name? Because they me
not necessary to the sacred story,,
merely incidental. Why is Cain’s wife
(who was obviously a sister, or a
niece) not mentioned? Mainly he-]
cause the Bible, like other ancient!
books, never mentions female children
unless they are very important to the!
, storv. Further, at the time this was|
iwritten, everyone knew where Cain
| got his wife; it would have been su
perficial for the Writer to include an!
. account of his courtship and marriage.I
“That may he so.” I can hear some
i one say, “but the Bible savs that he i
I went unto the land of Nod and tookj
unto himself a wife.” No it doesn’t!” t ;
It says that he dwelt in the land of.
Nod and “knew his wife” (Genesis; (
4:16-17). The phrase “knew his wife”,,
is merely an old English way of say- •
ing that he had intimate relations
, with her (see, for example. Genesis
1 4:1. or Matthew 1:25). However, even'
| if wo were told that he met her in! '
the land of Nod there would he no in-.
! consistency in the Bible story. That
there were many people living in the
] land of Nod at that time.'"is indicat
jed hv. (11 that the land of Nod had
I already been named: and (2) that
.[Cain was able to build a city there
i (Genesis 4:17), which he named after :
! his son, Enoch.

I question. Personally, I still prefer!

Quality Can Help Make

Despite the loss of 154,000 acres of i
icotton in North Carolina—and pros-.
' peets of further reductions in allot
ments—cotton growers can still in
crease their incomes.
| David S. Weaves, director of the

iton Quality Improvement Committee,

their sights on:

Weaver points out that North Caro-
Hina is largely a state of small cotton
growers; there are 87,000 farmers pro
ducing less than 600,000 acres. This
small acreage per farm means that
certain practices that have proved
profitable elsewhere, such as mechani
zation, are difficult to carry out in
North Carolina. In this state, 96 per
cent of the cotton is hand-picked,
pared to 38 per cent in California ai
19 per cent in Texas.
On the other hand, North Carolina
enjoys some advantages over these
states. North Carolina cotton is close
to the markets, and local mills favor
high-grade North Carolina cotton.
1 Weaver declares that Tar Heel farm
ers can produce a cotton of a very
■j high quality if they will observe every
practice essential to maintaining that
