These days I was looking into the serpent seedline claims by going into primary sources, as there’s a lot of misinformation online. So in this post I present to you the information from primary sources about Cain’s origins.
There are many sources which claim that Cain’s father was Satan whose real name was Samael, who was an angel of death. So in this article I will focus on discussing those sources.
Firstly, with regards to the relevant Genesis verse of our Bibles (Genesis 4:1), it says thus:
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.
If you thoroughly analyze this verse, you may realize that the last part of the sentence doesn’t sound right. Why would Eve say “I have gotten a man from the Lord”. It’s possible to interpret this as Eve’s wonder at her offspring and her belief that it was given to her by YHWH.
But other sources relate these events in a different way, which makes more sense, and reveals another corruption present in this biblical verse. You can judge for yourself whether it’s a corruption or not, but I believe that it is, because other sources have this event told in a way that makes much more sense.
And I’m not the only one who thinks that there is some sort of disruption in this verse. For example, in the Interpreter’s Bible we read:
Source: The Interpreter’s Bible by George Arthur Buttrick and others; volume 1, p. 517; Abingdon Press.
Another source quoted The Interpreter’s One-Volume Commentary On The Bible, edited by Charles M. Laymon, which discusses the same verse on page six:
(…) under circumstances which are obscure (vs. 1b can scarcely be translated, still less understood).
So scholars agree that this verse is obscure and can be scarcely translated. If that’s the case, then translators may give to their own opinions the way and reflect them in the translation. Since this particular verse is not clear in the Bible, we should look for texts outside of the Bible to determine the original meaning of this verse.
We find many witnesses of this verse and its meaning outside of the Bible. Some of the sources have words nearly identical to the discussed biblical verse, but some point to quite another meaning.
For example, Pseudo-Jonathan Targum says:
And Adam knew Hava his wife, who had desired the Angel; and she conceived, and bare Kain; and she said, I have acquired a man, the Angel of the Lord.
This is the official translation. Here is the Aramaic original of Genesis 4:1-2
וְאָדָם יְדַע יַת חַוָה אִיתְּתֵיהּ דַהֲוָה חֲמֵידַת לְמַלְאָכָא וְאַעֲדִיאַת וִילֵידַת יַת קַיִן וַאֲמָרַת קָנִיתִי לְגַבְרָא יַת מַלְאָכָא דַיְיָ
וְאוֹסִיפַת לְמֵילַד מִן בַּעֲלָהּ אָדָם יַת תְּיוּמָתֵיהּ וְיַת הֶבֶל וַהֲוָה הֶבֶל רָעֵי עָנָא וְקַיִן הֲוָה גְבַר פְּלַח בְאַרְעָא
Aramaic is very similar to Hebrew but not the same; if anyone knows Aramaic, please let me know about how you would translate these verses. But I see that the same word (though with grammatical modifications) is used both for Adam “knowing” Eve and Eve “knowing” the Angel of the Lord.
And the second verse specifies that Abel, Cain’s twin, was born from Eve’s husband; why would it need to be specified if Adam was Cain’s father as well?
And she added to bear from her husband Adam his twin, even Habel. And Habel was a shepherd of the flock, but Kain was a man working in the earth.
So if my guess is right, those verses would read:
And Adam knew Eve his wife, the one who knew the angel; and she conceived, and bare Kain; and she said, I have acquired a man, [from] the Angel of the Lord.
And she added to bear from her husband Adam his twin, even Habel. And Habel was a shepherd of the flock, but Kain was a man working in the earth.
(I added the word “from” as it’s in our Torah; If all corrupted texts are added together and logically arranged, we get the clearest picture.)
I think such rendering would make most sense; and we also know that it’s indeed possible for a woman to have twins from two fathers. Also, Eve is called the mother of all the living but Adam is not called the father of all the living; because he was not the father of the first-born son of Eve.
You might ask why wouldn’t YHWH choose to kill this hybrid offspring right there so that it doesn’t pollute the seed of humanity? He couldn’t do this according to His law which says that every first-born male must be redeemed. Satan knows the laws of YHWH very well, and tries to use them against the One who created them!
Neofiti Targum says that God put enmity between the sons of the serpent and the sons of the woman; and that whenever the sons of women keep the commandments they would smite and kill the serpent and whenever they forsake the commandments than the serpent would have the power to hurt them; and that at the end the Messiah will save the humanity but that there is no salvation to the serpent.

In Animal Apocalypse from the book of Enoch we read a retelling of Genesis story symbolized by animals. From it we have it confirmed that at first Lucifer fell from heaven, and then many others followed (my notes are in square brackets).
Again I saw something with my eyes as I slept: I saw the skies above, and behold! A star fell from skies. The star got up and began to pasture and eat with the cattle. After that I saw very big, black cattle [first giants?]. Behold! They all changed their stalls and pasture lands; the young crying among themselves [expulsion from the Garden of Eden?].
Again I saw in the vision by looking skyward, and behold! I saw many stars fall, casting themselves down from the skies to that first star [due to Satan’s influence?]. They became as bulls amongst those young cattle and pastured among them.
I looked at them and saw them; and behold! They all let out their members, just like horses. They began to cover the female cattle, which all became expectant. They bore elephants, camels, and asses [second giants].
All the cattle were afraid and very anxious about them, for they began to bite with their teeth and gulp down, and to gore with their horns. They began to swallow up those cattle [giants started eating humans]; and behold! All the young ones of the earth began to tremble and shake before them, and run away from them.
So the first star that fell is likely to be Satan who seeded his own line through Eve.
In Protevangelion we read about how Joseph found Mary, the mother of Yeshua, pregnant:
And when her sixth month was come, Joseph returned from his building houses abroad, which was his trade, and entering into the house, found the Virgin grown big:
Then smiting upon his face, he said, With what face can I look up to the Lord my God? or, what shall I say concerning this young woman?
For I received her a Virgin out of the temple of the Lord my God, and have not preserved her such!
Who has thus deceived me? Who has committed this evil in my house, and seducing the Virgin from me, hath defiled her?
Is not the history of Adam exactly accomplished in me?
For in the very instant of his glory, the serpent came and found Eve alone, and seduced her.
Just after the same manner it has happened to me.
Two seeds in Rabbinical literature
There are many witnesses to this two-seed theory in Rabbinical literature as well.
For example, in Shabbath 146a it is told:
The serpent came upon Eve he injected a lust into her: [as for] the Israelites who stood at Mount Sinai, their lustfulness departed; the idolaters, who did not stand at Mount Sinai, their lustfulness did not depart (…).
In Abodah Zarah 22b we read:
When the serpent came unto Eve he infused filthy lust into her. If that be so [the same should apply] also to Israel. When Israel stood at Sinai that lust was eliminated, but the lust of idolaters, who did not stand at Sinai, did not cease.
In Zohar we read these words:
Said Rabbi Eleazar: “The probable cause of their great dissimilarity of nature arose from coitions of the being termed the serpent, and Adam with Eve who thus brought forth two sons, one of which, Cain, was from an impure, the other, Abel, from a pure progenitor; hence the difference in their lives and actions. As Cain was the issue from the death angel, he killed his brother who issued from the right side of the tree of life. And through him has come all the evil generations of demons and elementals now in the world.”
What seems to be claimed here is that Cain is not only the offspring of Satan, but that his offspring, after their deaths, become evil spirits (since they belong to a hybrid bloodline).
The early Celtic Church of Britain believed in the two-seeds theory as well:
“Who died but was never born?” (Adam)”Who gave but did not receive?” (Eve, milk)”Who was born but did not die?” (Elias and Enoch)”Who was born twice and died once? (Jonas the prophet, who for three days and three nights prayed in the belly of the whale. He neither saw the heavens nor touched the earth)””How many languages are there?” (Seventy-two)”Who spoke with a dog?” (St Peter)”Who spoke with an ass?” (Balaam the prophet)“Who was the first woman to commit adultery?” (Eve with the serpent)“.
In the Jewish Encyclopedia we read:
The evil nature of Samael may be illustrated by a number of examples. He and his demonic host descended from heaven to seduce the first human pair (Pirḳe R. El. xiii., beginning; Yalḳ. Gen. i. 25), and for this purpose he planted the vine, the forbidden tree of paradise (Greek Apocalypse of Baruch, iv.). He was himself [not?] the serpent, whose form he merely assumed (ib. ix.; “J. Q. R.” vi. 328), and was one of the leaders of the angels who married the daughters of men (Gen. vi. 1-4), thus being partially responsible for the fall of the angels (Enoch vi., in Kautzsch, “Apokryphen,” ii. 238 et seq.; Lucken, l.c. p. 29).
Two seeds in the Bible
Since there are many primary or early sources in favor of the two-seed progeny, we must then search the Bible to see if it supports such a view. And in the Bible we find many supporting verses about the existence of two seeds.
Let’s start from the very beginning of the fall and look at the curses that YHWH placed on humans as a result of their transgression. YHWH’s curse on the serpent was related to his belly (“uppon thy belly shalt thou go”) and Eve’s curse was to do with her womb (multiple conceptions, bringing forth children in sorrow). So if two-seedline theory is correct, it makes sense why YHWH would choose to curse those body parts.
Also, YHWH placed mutual hatred between the seed of a woman and the seed of a serpent. This curse wouldn’t make sense if Eve wouldn’t have had sexual intercourse with Satan, but it would make total sense if such an intercourse indeed took place and Eve bore the offspring of both Satan and Adam.
Furthermore, we see that the offspring Cain, who is called the son “of that wicked one” in 1 John 3:12, is totally evil. He murdered his brother, did not even repent for it, and felt sorry for himself for the greatness of the curse that YHWH placed on him, which is totally selfish! He was concerned only with his own well-being. Was he the first psychopath in the world, I wonder?
Also, Cain is not listed as the firstborn of Adam. Some say that it’s because he was a murderer, but where is it told in Torah that the firstborn males that sin are struck off from their family tree lists? There’s no rule as such, and the Bible indirectly explains why he wasn’t listed as the first-born of Adam – because he wasn’t first-born of Adam, as he was born of the wicked one.
Also, it was Seth that is mentioned as being born after the image and likeness of Adam and nothing of that sort is mentioned about Cain, and that Seth was the replacement of Abel. So these two are the sons of Adam, and not Cain. Cain was not like Adam because Adam was not his father.
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.
— John 8:44
Jesus also told a parable of how the tares were sown among the wheat (Matthew 13:24-30), and then in private He told to His disciples that what He meant was that the tares were sown by the devil. So we see Him exposing two seeds; He told that the good seed were the children of the Kingdom and the bad seed – the children of the wicked one which would be burnt at the end of the world.
The curse for adultery
Therefore the first human sin that caused the fall must be adultery with a fallen one. I believe that the reason women have to experience periodic bleeding and that this is considered unclean by YHWH is because of that substance that Samael infused into her and this is then curse that remained with all the women born through Eve. And this makes me remember that I need to let you know that there is one purification law that is still valid, and it’s this:
And if a woman have an issue, and her issue in her flesh be blood, she shall be put apart seven days: and whosoever toucheth her shall be unclean until the even.
And every thing that she lieth upon in her separation shall be unclean: every thing also that she sitteth upon shall be unclean.
And whosoever toucheth her bed shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And whosoever toucheth any thing that she sat upon shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
And if it be on her bed, or on any thing whereon she sitteth, when he toucheth it, he shall be unclean until the even.
And if any man lie with her at all, and her flowers be upon him, he shall be unclean seven days; and all the bed whereon he lieth shall be unclean.
And if a woman have an issue of her blood many days out of the time of her separation, or if it run beyond the time of her separation; all the days of the issue of her uncleanness shall be as the days of her separation: she shall be unclean.
Every bed whereon she lieth all the days of her issue shall be unto her as the bed of her separation: and whatsoever she sitteth upon shall be unclean, as the uncleanness of her separation.
And whosoever toucheth those things shall be unclean, and shall wash his clothes, and bathe himself in water, and be unclean until the even.
But if she be cleansed of her issue, then she shall number to herself seven days, and after that she shall be clean.
— Leviticus 15:19-28
Interestingly, YHWH cursed a woman with multiple births (“I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception“). Maybe women were supposed to have only one offspring but since Satan made sure that that offspring was his, YHWH had to change her nature to allow the birth of her legitimate children.
Maybe that’s why many eggs are produced in the womb of a female throughout her life and because it’s a curse, it’s painful when through the period those eggs are discarded. This is just my theory, but I think it’s worth pondering on.
So we see that the Bible supports the two-seed theory, but why is the very event obscured in the Bible?
We are told by Yeshua that the scribes and Pharisees that seated themselves in Moses seat were of the seed of the serpent. (Matthew 12:34)
So it’s no surprise that if Torah was in the hands of these murderers and adulterers, that they decided to obscure their origins by altering the Torah.
We know that Torah was changed because of the proof that the earliest translations of Torah (targums) as well as other early sources including Rabbinical writings support the two-seed theory. The Bible itself supports it as I’ve already shown.
So the first sin seems to be Lucifer’s pride that led to rebellion, and the first sin of humanity – adultery with a fallen angel. The corrupted seedline was allowed to survive the flood and we live among the tares, but hopefully I will make another video about it.
Thus, looking closer at this topic made me arrive at the conclusion that Eve indeed had sexual relationships with Satan, whose name is Sammael, who is the Angel of Death.
