• Descendant of Caen per Genesis Ch 4


According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch (or Enos) was a son of Cain, grandson of Adam, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife got pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch. The city Cain founded in the Land of Nod was named after his son (Genesis 4:17). According to Jubilees 4:9, Enoch's mother was named Awan.

Genesis Narrative

And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. 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. And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. (Genesis 4:16-18)
