10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother’s blood crieth unto me from the ground.
Hebrews 12:24 “And to Jesus the mediator of the new (H3501 rejuvenated) covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.” Abel’s blood cried out for justice while Yeshua’s blood for mercy.”
11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand;
Just like the events in the Garden there was disobedience thus resulting in curse and then exile.
12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
fugitive = H5128 – means to waver, to sift, to [go] up and down. It is interesting again the ties this has to Satan:
Job 1:7 ”And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.”
The word vagabond H5110 is the Hebrew word “nuwd” and it means: to nod, i.e. waver, to wander, flee, disappear, or to taunt.
13 And Cain said unto the Lord, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
14 Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that everyone that findeth me shall slay me.
15 And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
It is certainly noteworthy that there was an entire area of the earth named “Nod”. Vagabond or vagrancy is the state of living as a vagrant; homelessness. Cain and those settled in the “Nod” exhibit a behavior and are without an eternal home.
17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
We will see some very closely titled names in the genealogy of Cain to those of the genealogy of Adam….why? Because Satan wants to be, just as he deceived Adam and Eve, “like God”. This is intentional to add confusion, doubt and delusion to mind of those seeking to be followers of YHVH.
18 And unto Enoch was born Irad (fugitive): and Irad begat Mehujael (smitten of God): and Mehujael begat Methusael (as the Superior or Indomitable Strength but used of any deity): and Methusael begat Lamech.
19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah (ornament, as in trophy), and the name of the other Zillah (shaded/hidden).
20 And Adah bare Jabal (course, way): he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
21 And his brother’s name was Jubal (to bring especially with pomp): he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
Personal reflective question: Any wonder why the music industry is so prominent in sex, violence, drugs and debauchery? Or why they want to have their own awards programs?
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
Naamah appears in Sumerian Kings list as one of the mates of the archangel Samael. She, along with her cohort Lilith, according to the Zohar [Jewish mysticism] visit him and bear his demonic children, who became the Plagues of Mankind. Noah’s wife was named Naamah as well, however she was one of Enoch’s descendants thus a cousin several times removed from Noah.
Just like today when there are thousands, if not millions, of people who have the same name (Fred, Rebecca, Kathy, Elizabeth) so it was then. Lots of people had the same name so we have to be careful as we read the Bible not to mix up people simply because they bore the same name.
The Babylonian Talmud, Sumerian Kings List, The Epic of Gilgamesh and Zohar are often overlooked by the Roman centered church system yet the reoccurrence of these events in harmonious synchronicity draws more than simple curiosity to the issue. After the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Enoch the issue is no longer a vague, or simply pagan idea.
23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
Lamech is far removed from God and Lamech [as had Cain and many others] breaks God’s instruction about the institution of marriage; of a man and woman being joined as one flesh: he gets greedy and takes TWO wives. And, then, listen to the proud, rebellious Lamech who boasts this to his 2 wives.
24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
How brazen can people be? Here Lamech thumbs his nose at YHVH!
