In II Adam & Eve 13:1, Tubal-cain is known as Atun. In Jasher, Tubal-cain is spelled
as, Tubal Cain. Tubal-cain was a metal-smith in which he created brass and iron.
In II Adam & Eve 13 it explains how Tubal-cain died, but Tubal-cain is known as a
young shepherd. Tubal-cain was afraid that someone would kill him and steal all
or some of the cattle he attended. He complained about it to his father, Lamech.
Lamech was nearly blind and could not see well but Lamech pitied Tubal-cain and
went with him to the field to look after the cattle with him. Lamech took with him
a bow and arrows and a sling with stones; they did this for many days. On one account,
Tubal-cain’s great-great-great-grandfather, Cain came towards them for a visit. Cain
had heard from Lamech’s wives that Tubal-cain and Lamech were in the field.
When Tubal-cain saw Cain approaching them at a distance, he thought that it was
a wild beast or a robber coming at them. Tubal-cain instructed his father where
to shoot the arrows, and Lamech shot Cain in his side, and then he took the sling
in which he hit Cain in the face with a stone, which caused Cain to die. Tubal-cain
and Lamech went to see what it was that they killed, and when Lamech saw the body
of Cain, he became so grieved at Cain’s death, that he clapped his hands together,
in which he struck Tubal-cain. In doing so, caused Tubal-cain’s death.
