Genesis 4:17–26

17 Cain 1had relations with his wife and she conceived, and gave birth to Enoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city Enoch, after the name of his son.

18 Now to Enoch was born Irad, and Irad 1became the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael 1became the father of Methushael, and Methushael 1became the father of Lamech.

19 Lamech took to himself atwo wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other, Zillah.

20 Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.

21 His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe.

22 As for Zillah, she also gave birth to Tubal-cain, the forger of all implements of bronze and iron; and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.

23 Lamech said to his wives,

“Adah and Zillah,

Listen to my voice,

You wives of Lamech,

Give heed to my speech,

aFor I 1have killed a man for wounding me;

And a boy for striking me;

24 If Cain is avenged asevenfold,

Then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.”
