|NASB||Genesis 8:18 So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him.|
|Genesis 8:18 So Noah went out, and his wife and his sons and their wives with him [after being in the ark one year and ten days].|
I've been asked this question from a non-believer and don't know how to respond.
Noah, his wife, their three sons, and two daughters were all on the ark together during the flood. After the flood was over, there was no one left on earth but Noah's family. So, we all descended first from Adam and Eve, and then later from Noah and his family. The bible doesn't allow incest. So Noah's children must of slept together in order to "multiply" or in other word start the population of the world again. Could this be true?
Bible Answer: Hello SugarKissesOmy,
Noah had no daughters, but his 3 grown sons already had wives:
So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
On the very same day Noah and Noah's sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark--
So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him.
2 Timothy 2:15 (New King James Version)
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
