Noah’s Wife


Some time back I was watching (a well-known televangelist) and I thought he said that Noah was married to Enoch’s daughter. The bible says that Noah was Enoch’s grandson, but then again Noah could have been married to a half-sister like Abraham. Anyway I can’t find anything on her. Is it possibly in the genealogy somewhere?


The legend that Noah’s wife was Naamah, daughter of Enoch comes from the non-Biblical Book of Jasher. If true, it would mean that Noah married his great aunt. The Book of Jubilees, also non-Biblical, claims that her name was Emzara, and she was the daughter of Noah’s cousin Rakeel. But the name and ancestry of Noah’s wife are not revealed anywhere in Scripture.
