It is not known exactly when Cain was born, but it could be guessed that he was born
a year or so after his parents were expelled from the Garden of Eden.
He was born in the Land of Elda according to Jubilees 3:28. However, he became jealous
of his younger brother, Abel in which he murdered him for. In Genesis, Cain was
jealous of Abel because Yahvah had more respect for Abel’s offering than Cain’s.
Cain was more of a farmer, and it was of the fruit of the ground that he gave his
offering to Yahvah, but Yahvah did not respect it.
After Cain murdered his younger brother, Yahvah cursed him so that he could no longer
farm the ground, so Cain became a vagabond. He married his sister Awan in which
they had a son, Enoch. In that time, Cain built a city and named it after his son.
Cain’s great-great-great-grandson Lamech avenged Abel’s death by mistaking him for
an animal and slaying him with arrows.
