    Default Did Adam really have 2 wives?

    When I first read and heard about a woman named "Lilith" I was very skeptical of the theory or whatever of her being Adam's first wife. However, I was reading out of my bible and stumbled on this, Genesis 1: 27-28,

    "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them."

    Now go to Genesis 2: 21-23

    "So the Lord God caused a sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh; taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man."

    I'm curious to what you guys think, but I'm gonna go do some research.

    The first I heard or saw of Lillith was in a Shin Megami Tensei game, surprisingly. How they portrayed her was a naked woman with a snake wrapped around her and in the biography, it explains that Lillith was Adam's unfaithful wife.

    In the Torah, I think, Lilith refused to be faithful to Adam and thus, left the Garden of Eve. She refused to return there. She also mated with Archangel Samael, thus having children called Lilim. However, Lilith was warned about her actions, and forced her to return to the Garden of Eden. Lillith refused, thus God vowed that one hundred children of Lilliths will die.

    As revenge, she kills newborns of 8 days after birth for boys and 20 days after birth for girls.

    In a nutshell, Lillith is the evil counterpart of Adam. Eve is the goodness extracted from Adam.

    I actually just recently got intrested in her. Apparently she was Adam's first wife. But unfortunatly they argued about who would be on top in intercourse. Adam said "Since I'm main and I was first so I'm dominent!" She grew to hate Adam. She then asks God to give her wings so she can calm down. When she does she flies off. Adam pleads with God to give him a better wife in which he does (Eve). She then grows to be increadibly hateful of God. From this hate God cursed her saying 100 of her babies were to die a day.(Becuase that was Lillith's main goal to have a child)

    She eventually met with the Archangel Micheal in which she married and had a baby with. But thanks to the curse it died. Eventually God stopped it by making Micheal starrel. After this Lillith left him becuase he couldnt have a baby. She then started having babies with humans and angels (Fallen angels/demons). It is said if she lays with Satan she we birth the quenn of all witches..

    The Bible does, in some translations, mention "the lilith." This can be found in Isaiah 34:14. But it is not the mythological air demon "Lilitu"/ "second wife" to Adam but rather refers to an animal possibly a bird of some sort- most likely the Nightjar.

    That is pretty much the only place you will find it out of all of the Hebrew (including the Torah) and Christian Greek scriptures. I think when you said Torah, you meant Talmud, which is really a root from Babylonish teachings. Interestingly enough, as I have pointed out in several other discussions, most of today's religions do in some form have tied up in their doctrines Babylonian ideas.

    Not too sure about the Quran's inclusion/exclusion of Lilith though.

    Nope, no Lilith in the Qu'ran. Prophet Adam (pbuh) only had one wife, and that was lady Eve.

    Not really a believer per se, but I have always been fascinated with the Bible and it's stories.

    Lilith is very interesting, too but some questions come up.

    Where did she come from?

    What ever happened to her?

    Why is she called the first demon?

    I have heard the ancient arguments of Lillith. I actually saw something called Banned from the Bible, where some scholars talked about Lillith. YouTube - Story Of Lilith - Succubus and I have heard of a Bablyon goddess that was believed to be Lillith.

    Lilith was Adam's first wife who was born in a giant egg which is now our moon. Then she was captured after the second impact, her blood now feeds giant biological mech clones of Adam who is now in an embryonic state. And for whatever reason giant angels are attacking Earth, their mission being to find Adam. Though they're really just reaching Lilith coincidently. But then Adam gets consumed by a mind diddlyed 15 year old who then combines with Lilith to create the third impact. Only two humans survive, or course it is a male and a female. Unfortunately both of these characters are mind diddlyed, and one tries to kill the other...

    Just like xiolio_tiessa628, I saw a show on the history channel about things banned from the bible. It's very interesting that this would be left out.

    Yes, Adam had two wives. According to the Rabbitic Midrash, the first one was Lilith who was created from the dust of the Earth at the same time as Adam. When Adam insisted that she always be "beneath him in intercourse" it was a both literal and metaphoric. It was a metaphore for her to be always submissive to Adam. She felt she was equal to him because they were created at the same time. The biblical Lilith is not only mentioned in Isaiah 34:14 she is mentioned in literature from Mesapotamia as a winged Goddess.

    Eve was created to replace Lilith when Lilith refused to return to Eden and be summissive to Adam. From antiquity, the story has been the basis of women being treated as chattels and as second class citizens. It was carried so far that the early Christian church did not admit that women had souls until the 4th century after the death of Christ.

    Ah, the third and fourth centuries, the periods where even more teachings not from the Bible were thrown into "Christian" dogma.
