II. But Cain dwelt in the earth trembling,
|Cf. Gen. 4:14|
2. And Cain knew Themech his wife and she
3. 1 Now Cain was 15 years old when he did these things; and from that time he began to build cities, until he had founded seven cities. And these are
and the name of the fifth Iesca; the name of the sixth Celeth, and the name of the seventh Iebbath.
4. And Cain lived after he begat Enoch 715 years and begat 3 sons and 2 daughters. And these are the names of his sons: Olad, Lizaph, Fosal; and of his daughters, Citha and Maac. And all the days of Cain were 730 years, and he died.
5. 1 Then took Enoch a wife of the daughters of Seth, which bare him Ciram and Cuuth and Madab. But Ciram begat Matusael, and Matusael begat Lamech.
10. 3 Now Lamech said unto his two wives Ada
and Sella: Hear my voice, ye wives of Lamech, give heed to my precept: for I have corrupted men for myself, and have taken away sucklings from the breasts, that I might show my sons how to work evil, and the inhabiters of the earth. And now shall vengeance be taken seven times of Cain, but of Lamech seventy times seven.
77:1 II. 3. The names of Cain's cities, except the first, do not occur elsewhere.
78:1 5. Jerahmeel says that Enoch, son of Cain, took Niba, daughter of Shem, to wife. His source is unknown to me.
78:2 8. See the Appendix on Readings.
78:3 10. Jubilees does not speak of this Lamech. The turn p. 79 here given to his "song" suggests that his offence was against morality; this view is found elsewhere.
