Lillith Was Adam’s First Wife!?

Ya’ll, daytime television has been a thing since time began apparently.

I just recently came across this and…I don’t believe any of it.

And I’ll explain my reasons why with scriptures, but first… who is this Lilith?

Ok… this is what I’ve gathered about this story:

In rabbinic literature Lilith is variously depicted as the mother of Adam’s demonic offspring following his separation from Eve or as his first wife. Whereas Eve was created from Adam’s rib (Genesis 2:22), some accounts hold that Lilith was the woman implied in Genesis 1:27 and was made from the same soil as Adam. Insolently refusing to be subservient to her husband, Lilith left Adam and the perfection of the Garden of Eden; three angels tried in vain to force her return. According to some mythologies, her demonic offspring were sired by an archangel named Samael and were not Adam’s progeny. Those children are sometimes identified as incubi and succubi.

After I read this and many commenters backing this story up, I looked no further than the Bible itself to confirm these things.

The Holy Spirit first led me to look up where this story even originated from and upon looking into it, it has only been spoken of in the Babylonian Talmud.

There are TWO Talmuds. One by the Babylonians, and one by the Israelites (Jerusalem Talmud).

It was quite the red flag to me that this detailed doctrine wasn’t confirmed in any Hebrew writings, and only written about by the Babylonians.

I’ve heard that Lilith is also mentioned in the book of Enoch, but I didn’t see it there. It just keeps coming up in the Babylonian Talmud mainly.

This is important because, as found in Psalms 147, Ahayah had only given His Word to the ISRAELITES and had not dealt with any other nation (for example, the Babylonians).

So how could the Babylonians have a story so detailed from God when He didn’t give them His Words and Laws directly?

19 He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.

20 He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for his judgments, they have not known them. Praise ye the Lord.

Psalms 147:19,20

Now, even if you could go back and debunk me on it, there’s still one other hole in this debate…

The Misunderstanding of Genesis 1:27

(And the whole chapter altogether…)

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

Genesis 1:27

This verse is always contradicted with Genesis 2:22 when Eve was formed.

Supposedly, because God said He was creating man and woman in chapter 1, that means when Eve was created, she was too late for Adam, for he had already been taken by Lilith, who was supposedly his equal, also created from dust.

But there’s ummmmm…. one thing I’ve noticed that seems to keep being passed over….

Even ADAM wasn’t created until CHAPTER 2.

And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Genesis 2:7

….sooooooo if we are going to stick to the fact that Genesis 1:27 meant that God ACTUALLY made a man AND woman right then and there, not only is there mysterious Lillith, but there’s also a mysterious second Adam roaming around too… is there not?

Both Adam AND Eve are made in chapter 2, so who was this other missing couple?

There’s no missing couple.

Genesis chapter 1 isn’t about God actually making anything, but instead He was establishing an order.

Take note of how Genesis chapter 2 is written in comparison to Genesis 1. According to Genesis 1, all the earth and Heavens were made, there was grass and vegetation, there was fruit trees yielding, a man and woman already created, so on and so forth.

But then Genesis 2 would contradict a lot of what had already happened in Genesis 1…

For instance, according to Genesis 1:11,12, there was already fruit trees and other vegetation on earth, growing and yielding produce…

11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

Genesis 1:11,12

So if that was so, then explain Genesis 2:5 where it says that there was no shrub or plant found because God hadn’t caused it to rain yet and there was no man to til the ground?

And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.

Genesis 2:5

Again, Genesis 1 is about establishing order, or Ahayah speaking what He intended to bring about as far as creation went and then Genesis chapter 2 was Ahayah putting these things into action.

So no, there is no “ex wife turned evil/ strong independent woman” drama, I’m sorry. Though it was interesting, but that is a false doctrine.

False huh? So explain Isaiah 34:14!

The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.

Isaiah 34:14

Now you may be thinking to yourself, “but Lilith isn’t even mentioned in this scripture…”

Aaaaah, you’d be mistaken! According to the Strong’s Concordance, the term “screech owl” is translated from Hebrew term “lîylîyth” (H3917) or basically, Lilith.

So yes, the scriptures DO mention her… though not as a mysterious hidden wife of Adam, but as a “night creature”.

Isaiah 34 is prophesying about the fall of Edom, otherwise The Most High’s vengeance against all the nations against Him.

From beginning to the end it speaks of great destruction and desolation and by the time we get to verse 11 and onwards, it’s showing about how this desolate wasteland will be given over to the beasts, cue ‘Lilith’ at verse 14.

It no way implies anything about her being a human let alone being the first wife of Adam.

And this is kind of a bonus point here lol. But you know how they say that in the book of Isaiah, because it has 66 books, that each chapter references a different book of the Bible?

Well, I decided to kind of look into that.

So, the 34th book of the Bible, according to the Table of Contents lol, is Nahum.

Nahum is one of the minor prophets who prophesied mainly about Nineveh’s demise and ruin.

What’s ironic is that Nineveh fell captive to the Assyrians who were closely linked to the Babylonians

…… didn’t we say before that the story of Lilith is predominantly from Babylonian sources?

Hmmmm…… but you do what you want with that insight.

Ultimately, Lilith according to scriptures is nothing more than a beast in the midst of destruction and at best a possible pagan goddess attributed by the Babylonians and Assyrians following after Ashera who was the female pagan counterpart of Baal.

At NO point in time is she a human turned devil who didn’t want to be held down by a man. This doctrine is not biblical.

Love you. Mean it!
