In chapter four we examined the murder of Abel by his brother Cain and Cain’s banishment from the presence of the Lord. We have also seen a brief coverage of Cain’s descendants who were:
Enoch, Irad, Mehujael, Methushael, and Lamech; Lamech took two wives Adah and Zillah. From there it branched off into Adah’s children, Jabal and Jubal; an expert in livestock and an expert in the harp and the flute. Zillah was the mother of Tubal-Cain an instructor to every craftsman in bronze and iron.
From this we can conceive of a civilization which was advanced, industrious, artistic, and godless; and possibly well beyond the Greeks or the Romans in their civilization.
