a birth is recorded without the antecedent declaration that ***
knew his wife. Therefore, I would not think there is any reason to
believe they were twins.
The Bible does not answer this conclusively, but the implication

Cain and Abel Were Twins Answers
I believe they were twins...one account says Adam knew his wife
and she conceived and bore Cain...then she bore again and gave
birth to Abel. She bore (labored, pushed) again and gave birth. If
you know twins ask them which one is older and I bet they will tell
you which was born first. Even if they were delivered by Cesarean
section, one was born before the other, thus being called the older
of the two.
Yes Cain & Abel were twins. In Gen 3:16 God said unto the
woman, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and CONCEPTION. Gen 4:2
And she again bare his brother Abel. (The Hebrew word yashab can
mean either again or to continue.) Eve continued on in labor from
the previous verse 4:1 where Cain was born and gave birth to her
2nd son, Abel in 4:2. God said he was going to multiply her
conception and he did. Further proof: Cain & Abel both reached
the age that they were expected to make an offering to God at the
same time. Not 5 years apart or even a year later they both made
their offerings at the same time, because they were twins.
