Cain’s descendants survived the flood


Recommended Posts

Hello; I was reading the Survivors of Noah’s Flood blog by Lerk and there is another passage that people tend to overlook.  In Genesis 4, well before the flood, Cain’s descendant Lamech is said to be the ancestor of people who sound like they must still be alive:


19 Lamech took two
wives: the name of the first one was Adah, and
the name of the second one was Zillah. 20 Adah
gave birth to Jabal, who was the father of those
who dwell in tents and have livestock. 21 His
brother’s name was Jubal, who was the father
of all who handle the harp and pipe. 22 Zillah
also gave birth to Tubal Cain, the forger of every
cutting instrument of bronze and iron.

According to Henry Morris in "The Genesis Record", they all survived and are living comfortably in Eastern Russia now.

     Those people only lived up to the flood.  It was important to mention they originated these things though.  Credit where credit is due.  Fortunately, Noah and his kin learned, mastered and carried on all their traditions.  The one thing Noah's family failed to pass along was their own trade which was how to build giant wooden boats.
