Genesis 4:19-28 New International Version

19  Lamech married two women, one named Adah and the other Zillah. 20  Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. 21  His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play stringed instruments and pipes. 22  Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of[1] bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain's sister was Naamah.

23  Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah, listen to me; wives of Lamech, hear my words. I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for injuring me. 24  If Cain is avenged seven times, then Lamech seventy-seven times."

25  Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth,[2] saying, "God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him." 26  Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on[3] the name of the Lord.
