Gen 4

4:1–26 The prophesied hostility between the offspring of the serpent and the offspring of the woman (cf. 3:15) takes shape immediately in the hostility of ungodly Cain against godly Abel (vv. 1–16), and in the contrast of Cain’s ungodly offspring versus the godly line of Seth (4:17–5:32). There is a horrendous escalation of sin from Cain to Lamech.
