22 And as for Zillah, she also bore Tubal-Cain, an instructor of every craftsman in bronze and iron. And the sister of Tubal-Cain was Naamah.

23 Then Lamech said to his wives:

“Adah and Zillah, hear my voice;
Wives of Lamech, listen to my speech!
For I have [a]killed a man for wounding me,
Even a young man [b]for hurting me.
24 (A)If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold,
Then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.”
