katapi HOME Genesis 4:17-24 - Generations - Cain.  Gn.4.17-24

4 17 Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city after the name of his son, Enoch. 4 18 To Enoch was born Irad; and Irad was the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael the father of Methushael, and Methushael the father of Lamech. 4 19 And Lamech took two wives; the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 4 20 Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and have cattle. 4 21 His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe. 4 22 Zillah bore Tubal-cain; he was the forger of all instruments of bronze and iron. The sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah. 4 23 Lamech said to his wives:

"Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
you wives of Lamech, hearken to what I say:
I have slain a man for wounding me,
a young man for striking me.
4 24 If Cain is avenged sevenfold,
truly Lamech seventy-sevenfold."
