Lamech was the son of Methushael in the line of Cain. He had two wives, Adah and Zillah. With Adah he fathered Jabal and Jubal. With Zillah he fathered Tubal-cain and a daughter named Naamah.[1] Let it also be noted that in a poem to his wives, Lamech admits to killing a man and expected to be cursed for it.[2]
