Cain was the great-great grandfather of Lemek, who had three sons. In Genesis, Chapter 4, it is told that Lemek had two of these sons with his wife Ada: Jabal, the shepherd, who became the first ancestor of all who live in tents and keep cattle, Jubal, who became the first ancestor of all those who play the harp (he stands with a harp made from the head of an ox). With Zilla, Lemek had the smith Tubalcain, who was the first ancestor of all those who forge copper and iron. He stands guarding the fire.
