Question: What signs of humanity’s decay do you observe in Cain’s descendants?
Genesis 4:19 (compare with Genesis 2:4) -- And Lamech took two wives. The name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
Genesis 2:4 -- Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
Men are now involved in polygamy. This is the beginning of the exploitation of women. This shows that men are no longer interested in faithfulness, loyalty, and care for their wives.
Lamech said to his wives: "Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to what I say: I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for striking me. 24 If Cain's revenge is sevenfold, then Lamech's is seventy-sevenfold."
Men are proud, arrogant, violent and vengeful; and they seem to enjoy killing others.
