Lamech married1 two women,2 one named Adah and the other Zillah.
Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock.
His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play the harp3 and flute.422
Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged5 all kinds of tools out ofa bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain's sister was Naamah.
Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah, listen to me; wives of Lamech, hear my words. I have killedb6 a man for wounding me, a young man for injuring me.
If Cain is avenged7 seven times,8 then Lamech seventy-seven times.9"
