  • Rosalia on Genesis 4
    I believe i found the better suitable answer by digging around .. ^_^
    Cain was the first child of Adam and Eve recorded in Scripture ( Genesis 4:1). His brothers, Abel ( Genesis 4:2) and Seth ( Genesis 4:25), were part of the first generation of children ever born on this earth.

    Even though only these three males are mentioned by name, Adam and Eve had other children. In Genesis 5:4 a statement sums up the life of Adam and Eve—“And the days of Adam after he had fathered Seth were eight hundred years. And he fathered sons and daughters.” This does not say when they were born. Many could have been born in the 130 years ( Genesis 5:3) before Seth was born.

    During their lives, Adam and Eve had a number of male and female children. The Jewish historian Josephus wrote that, “The number of Adam's children, as says the old tradition, was thirty-three sons and twenty-three daughters.”[11]

    The Bible does not tell us how many children were born to Adam and Eve. However, considering their long life spans (Adam lived for 930 years— Genesis 5:5), it would seem reasonable to suggest there were many! Remember, They were commanded to “Be fruitful, and multiply” ( Genesis 1:28).
