Adam’s first wife was Eve who God made out of his ribs while he was asleep.
EVE was the First Woman on earth and the Mother of All People.
When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.
It’s sobering to realize that a lifetime of good can be forever marred by a single sin or poor decision, and the consequences can be seemingly immeasurable. In the case of Eve, the consequences of her sin affected the entire world for the rest of time.
As most people know, Eve was the first woman, created by God from a rib from Adam’s side. She and Adam lived in a beautiful garden in perfect harmony with God and with the rest of creation until she and Adam chose to disobey and eat from the one tree that they were forbidden to eat from in all the garden.
Certainly when Eve ate the fruit, she never imagined all the harm that her sin would cause. Yet that is the nature of sin. It looks pleasing and harmless, but the final result is always death. No amount of blaming each other or the serpent, who tempted her to eat the fruit, could change the sad consequences that would forever plague Adam and Eve and all their descendants. Forced to leave the garden, their lives and the lives of all who have come after them would now be marked by hard work, pain, and sorrow.
After Adam and Eve were forced to leave the garden, Eve gave birth
to Cain and Abel. Years later, Cain killed Abel out of jealousy, but
God gave Eve another son named Seth. Eve likely had other sons and daughters as well (Genesis 5:4).
