Husband: Lamech


Father:  Methusael

Notes for Zillah:

Her name in Hebrew is: צלה Tsillâh, (tsil-law’) Strongs #6741, shade.

Zillah and her sister, Adah became the wives of their third cousin twice removed, Lamech.  Zillah remained barren, because she drank a draught to remain barren, and to continue to look beautiful and retain her figure as in Jasher 2:20 & 21.

However, when Zillah became old, she had a son and a daughter, but her son died at a very young age because of her husband’s grief.  At the death of her son, Tubal-cain, she and her sister sought to kill Lamech for this act, but Lamech told them that the death of Cain was caused by his bad eyesight, and the death of Tubal-cain was caused by his grief over the death of Cain.  He had no intentions of killing them both.  Therefore, Zillah and Adah returned to their husband, but did not have anymore children from him.

Notes for Naamah:

Her name in Hebrew is: נעמה Na’ămâh (nah-am-aw’) Strongs #5279, pleasantness.

Naamah is not to be confused with Noah’s wife, since she has the same name.  However, this Naamah is only mentioned in Genesis 4:22, and she is not mentioned anywhere else.

His name in Hebrew is: קין תובל Tûwbal Qayin (too-bal’ kah’-yin) Strongs #8423; offspring of Cain.

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 too with his 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.
