 Lamech
    the strikerdown; the wild man. (1.) The fifth in descent from
    Cain. He was the first to violate the primeval ordinance of
    marriage (Gen. 4:18-24). His address to his two wives, Adah and
    Zillah (4:23, 24), is the only extant example of antediluvian
    poetry. It has been called "Lamech's sword-song." He was "rude
    and ruffianly," fearing neither God nor man. With him the
    curtain falls on the race of Cain. We know nothing of his
    descendants.
      (2.) The seventh in descent from Seth, being the only son of
    Methuselah. Noah was the oldest of his several sons (Gen.
    5:25-31; Luke 3:36).
