Next is the genealogy of Cain, Adams is in the fifth chapter. Gen 4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. Gen 4:18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
Cain's children all end in el, and are named after Adams children. All these children are the offspring of Satan, through Cain.

Gen 4:20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and [of such as have] cattle.
dwell in tents, they were wanderers not farmers( vs 4:12)
