Genesis 4:15; Genesis 4:24 (Bible in Basic English)
And the Lord said, Truly, if Cain is put to death, seven lives will be taken for his. And the Lord put a mark on Cain so that no one might put him to death.
If seven lives are to be taken as punishment for Cain's death, seventy-seven will be taken for Lamech's.
