Cain slept with his wife. She conceived and had Enoch. He then built a city and named it after his son, Enoch.
Enoch had Irad, Irad had Mehujael, Mehujael had Methushael, Methushael had Lamech.
Lamech married two wives, Adah and Zillah.
Adah gave birth to Jabal, the ancestor of all who live in tents and herd cattle.
His brother's name was Jubal, the ancestor of all who play the lyre and flute.
Zillah gave birth to Tubal-Cain, who worked at the forge making bronze and iron tools. Tubal-Cain's sister was Naamah.
Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, listen to me; you wives of Lamech, hear me out: I killed a man for wounding me, a young man who attacked me.
If Cain is avenged seven times, for Lamech it's seventy-seven!
Adam slept with his wife again. She had a son whom she named Seth. She said, "God has given me another child in place of Abel whom Cain killed."
And then Seth had a son whom he named Enosh. That's when men and women began praying and worshiping in the name of God.
