Genesis 4)

1 And Adam knew his wife; and she conceived and bare Cain (= acquisition, possession), and said, "I have gotten a man from the LORD." (Heb. 'ish. Lit. "a man with the help of". Heb. 'ish 'eth Yahaveh. Cp. Luke 2:11. It would seemingly be read by many that Adam was certainly Cain's father, but bear in mind and listen to verse 2)
2 And she again bare his brother Abel.( What is this word “again” in the Hebrew?

H3254 - yaÌ’saph yaw-saf’ A primitive root; to add or augment [often adverbially to continue to do a thing].

If a woman continues in labor what does that mean? So we see in this, that to continue means she continued in labor and there were twins; twins, both in the womb.. They were paternal twins. Cain being of Satan's seed, Abel of Adam's seed. Two separate bags of water, two separate conceptions. See 1 Chron. 2:55, the Kenites = the sons of Cain, came through the flood. The name Abel = breath, vapor, transitory, probably because of the shortness of his life) And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.
3 And at the end of days it came to pass (the time and place and offering probably appointed), that Cain brought the fruit of the ground (the product of the curse. What did Cain plant? - tares, symbolic of his [Satan's] own family) offering to the Lord. (A sacrifice to Yahaveh. Most religious, but his own "way"; but not the first fruits as Abel)
4 And Abel, he also brought by faith of the first-lings and the fattest ones too. And the Lord (as Covenant God, not Elohim, the Creator) had respect to Abel and his offering: (By accepting it by fire Divinely sent, Lev. 9:24. Judg. 6:21. 1 Kings 18:38. 1 Chron. 21:26. 2 Chron. 7:1; and cp. Ps. 20:3, and Heb.11:4. It is important to note that Cain and Abel where twins in as much as they matured and brought their offerings at the same time. But they were paternal twins not identical twins. They were twins of two pregnancies. Many don’t realize that this happens. Talk to you doctor and he will make this clear. )
5 But Cain and his offering He had no respect. And Cain as very wroth, and his countenance fell.
6 And the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen? (Question asked not for information or for an answer. You can normally "read people like a book" by their countenance. Here comes God's advise to Cain who was of the wicked on [1 John 3:12])
7 If you do well (if you were really honest), shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, at the entrance a male is lying, a sin offering. And to you is his desire (see Matt. 13:35-43), and you shall rule over him." (God is fair. Even Cain could have been accepted, if he had met the conditions. God is also fair in judgment. The choice is yours. God will keep His promises, if you do well. Each of us are responsible for our own blessings or chastisement. Which do you deserve? Satan also uses "if". See Matthew 4)
8 And Cain said to Abel his brother, "Let us go into the field:" and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. ("Religion" is and ever has been the greatest cause of blood-shedding. Cp. 3:15 where the war is on. See Matt. 23:33-35, John 8:44)
9 And the Lord said to Cain, "Where is Able your brother?" And he said, "I know not: am I my brother's keeper?" (He knew, he was lying to God)
10 And He said, "What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries to me from the ground. (Heb. bloods, denoting his posterity, see Matt.23:35)
11 And now you are cursed from the earth (suggests more than the ground) which has opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand; (Heb. idiom for murder)
12 When you till the ground, it shall not henceforth yield to you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be in the earth." (Even to this day this is true of them. They became builders of cities)
13 And Cain said to the Lord, "Is my iniquity too great to be forgiven?
14 Behold, You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that anyone that finds me (where did these come from? Answer: the 6th day CREATION, see 1:27. Adam and Eve were not first, they were FORMED on the 8th day.) shall slay me."
15 And the Lord said to him, "Not so, whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold." And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any man finding him should kill him. (The beginning of the mark of the "Beast". See Rev.13:18. Now I want to say that this mark is still present today in a spiritual sense, and we will go no deeper than that on it, and you will see Cain’s genealogy. It is important that you understand that genealogy of Cain. See Chapter 5)
16 And Cain went out from the presence of the Lord (i.e. Tabernacle placed by God for His worship, where offerings were brought), and dwelt in the land of Nod (= the land of Nomads. People of the 6th day Creation), on the east of Eden. (the Orient-Asia)

17 And Cain knew his wife (she was from the sixth day creation. See 1:27); and she conceived, and bare Enoch (Not the same Enoch of 5:18. The word means dedicated or teaching [what? evil?]. See v.26. One positive , one negative. War between 2 different seeds): and he (i.e Cain) built a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
18 And to Enoch was born Irad (= city of witness, fleet): and Irad begat Mehujael (= smitten of God): and Mehujael begat Methusael (= man of God); and Methusael begat Lamech. (= powerful, 7th from Adam in Cain's line. Sounds same as Adams genealogy. Be careful. God is trying to warn you that Satan and his seed are great pretenders. Satan is deceptive. See v.26)
19 And Lamech took to him two wives (first polygamist): the name of one was Adah (= ornament, beauty), and the name of the other was Zillah. (= shade)
20 And Adah bare Jabel (= flowing. Prime root of the flood of lies): he was the father of such that dwell in tents, and of such that have cattle.
21 And his brother's name was Jubal (= joyful sound): he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. (The well-known "Pan's pipe")
22 And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain (= flowing from Cain, flood coming. Come into my web of lies. Notice here we have the 3 Baal brothers, symbolic of opposite of the Holy Trinity), an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron (turns into idols): and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah. (= pleasant)
23 And Lamech said to his wife, "Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; you wives of Lamech, listen to my speech (Refers to 3:17. Lamech was in greater danger than Adam. Adam had only one wife, Lamech had two); for I can kill a man for wounding me, and a young man for hurting me. (Bragging about murdering these. Serving God? No way!)
24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech shall be avenged seventy and sevenfold."

25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth (= substituted, appointed, compensation), "For God (Elohim)", said she, "has appointed me another son instead (= in the stead of) of Abel, whom Cain slew."

26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos (=frail, incurable): then began men to call on the name of the Lord. (= began to call [Heb. cahal-verb = to bore, to wound, to profane, to drive a wedge between] upon their gods by the name of Yahaveh, or "began profanely to call upon the name of Yahaveh. Enos, though son of Seth, is included here because he went in "the way of Cain". They began to mix with the fallen angels. Turning to other ways of belief because of Cains offspring. This is what Enoch [of Adam's genealogy] prophesied against.)

"Calling On The Name Of The Lord"

"Then began men to call upon the name of the Lord." If this refers to Divine worship it is not true: for Abel and Cain both began, and their descendants doubtless followed their example.
What was really begun was the profanation of the Name of Yahaveh. They began to call something by the Name of Yahaveh. The A.V. suggest "themselves", in the margin (much like the new-age movement of today). But the majority of the ancient Jewish (& Israelite?) commentators supply the Ellipsis by the words "their gods"; suggesting that they called the stars and idols their gods, and worshiped them.
The Targum of Johnathan says:- "That was the generation in whose days they began to err, and to make themselves idols, and surnamed their idols by the Name of the Word of the Lord".
The Targum of Onkelos explains it:- "Then in his days the son of men desisted from praying in the Name of the Lord."
Kimchi, Rashi, and other ancient Jewish commentators agree with this. Rashi says:- "Then was the profanation in calling on the Name of the Lord."
Jerome says that this was the opinion of many Jews in his days.
Maimonides, in his Commentary on the Mishna (a constituent part of the Talmud), 1168 A.D., in a long treatise on idolatry, gives the most probable account of idolatry in the days of Enos.
The name Enos agrees with this, for his name means frail, weak, sickly, incurable. The sons of men such as "Enosh", are so called for a similar reason (Job 7:17; 15:14. Ps. 9:20; 103:15. Dan. 2:43).
If Jonathan, the grandson of Moses, became the first idolatrous priest in Israel (see notes on Judg.18:30), what wonder that Enos, the grandson of Adam, introduced idolatry among mankind.
Moreover, what "Ungodliness" did "Enoch, "the seventh from Adam" have to prophecy about in Jude 14,15, if purity of worship was began in the days of Enos, instead of profanation in calling on the Name of the Lord?
Surely this is sufficient evidence that this profanation of the Name of the Lord was the reason why Enoch was raised up to prophesy against it.
