View In My Bible
17 Kayin knew his wife. She conceived, and gave birth to Hanokh. He built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Hanokh. 18 To Hanokh was born `Irad. `Irad became the father of Mechuya'el. Mechuya'el became the father of Metusha'el. Metusha'el became the father of Lamekh. 19 Lamekh took two wives: the name of the one was `Adah, and the name of the other Tzillah. 20 `Adah gave birth to Yaval, who was the father of those who dwell in tents and have cattle. 21 His brother's name was Yuval, who was the father of all who handle the harp and pipe. 22 Tzillah also gave birth to Tuval-Kayin, the forger of every cutting instrument of brass and iron. Tuval-Kayin's sister was Na`amah. 23 Lamekh said to his wives, "`Adah and Tzillah, Hear my voice, You wives of Lamekh, listen to my speech, For I have slain a man for wounding me, A young man for bruising me. 24 If Kayin will be avenged seven times, Truly Lamekh seventy-seven times. 25 Adam knew his wife again. She gave birth to a son, and named him Shet. For, she said, "God has appointed me another child instead of Hevel, for Kayin killed him." 26 There was also born a son to Shet, and he named him Enosh. Then men began to call on the LORD's name.
