How Old Was Eve When She Died?

How old was Eve when she died? The Bible does mentioned Adam and Eve in Genesis chapter 5. Adam was 130 years old when he had a son with Eve, but Eve age was not mentioned in the Bible - Genesis 5:3.

The Bible speaks less of women but more of men. That is the reason why the age of Eve was not mentioned in the Bible, I supposed.

God created Adam and Eve in His image and likeness and placed them in the garden of Eden. He said to them not to eat the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for the day they eat thereof, they shall surely die - Genesis 2:17.

Did Adam and Eve Died After Eating the Forbidden Fruit?

When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit, they did not die physically. However, they died spiritaully. After eating the fruit, their eyes were opened and they knew they were not wearing any clothing.

They hid themselves when they knew that God was coming towards them. They were been covered by the glory of God until they ate the fruit but they loss that glory and the sweet fellowship with God.And God drove them out of the garden of Eden. This separation from God is termed - spiritual death - Genesis 3:23.

In other words, Adam and Eve died spiritaully on that day they ate the forbidden fruit and brought physical death upon the human race - Genesis 3:19.

How Old Was Adam When He Died?

After Adam and Eve was driven from the Garden of Eden, Adam knew his wife, Eve and they begat a son. As at that time, Adam was 130 years old - Genesis 5:3.

In Genesis 5:5, we read of Adam's death at the age of 930 years. That means, he lived extra 800 years after giving birth to his first son. From this, one can deduced by assumption that the age of Eve will be around 600 to 900 years. Since Adam was first created and then Eve.

The Bible did not tells us how long Adam stays before creating Eve. We read that ... it is not good for man to stay alone just like that....and that he needs a companion comparable to his likeness and form.
