Whom to Marry?

Post  seeker on Mon 03 Aug 2009, 5:56 pm

I have this question that Cain married his sister as we can read in the Bible that The man called his wife's name Eve, because she was the mother of all living (Genesis 3:20) and Abraham married his half-sister as we read: Besides she is indeed my sister, the daughter of my father not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife (Genesis 20:12).

My question lies on this verse:

Cursed be anyone who lies with his sister, whether the daughter of his
father or the daughter of his mother.' And all the people shall say,
'Amen.'
(Deuteronomy 27:22)

Why Cain and Abraham were not cursed according to Deuteronomy 27?

Thank you for joining CHRISTIAN TALK. You asked a question that according to Deuteronomy why Cain and Abraham were not considered cursed. The answer is simple. The law was given to Moses and he was talking to Jews that he brought out of the bondage of Egyptians. Cain and Abraham lived long before the law was given to Israelites through Moses by God.

Unlawful Marriage
According to Leviticus 18:6:
No one is to approach any close relative to have sexual relations. I am the LORD
This verse clearly points out that "First Cousins" cannot marry, for this would be incest and wickedness.

God bless you

Thank you for the warm welcome and my mistake I did not consider that Cain and Abraham lived long before Moses. Actually a friend was buzzing me a lot about this question and I could not think. I need to study Bible regulalry so that I should not make such mistakes
