AbstractEve’s statement that she had קנה a man in Genesis 4:1 has been the subject of considerable academic debate. A grammatical reassessment of the Semitic root qnh/qny, as well as a contextual analysis of Eve’s expression קָנִיתִי אִישׁ אֶת־יְהוָה supports a reading for Genesis 4:1b as “I have procreated a man with Yahweh.” This observation illustrates that some biblical authors perceived their deity as an active creative agent in the mysterious process of human conception, a view that accords with Yahweh’s participatory role in the tradition of Isaac’s conception in Genesis 21:1-3.1
