Comments

It is sometimes taught that taking more than one wife is wrong, because this happened with Cain's descendants. But too assume that all coming from Cain is evil, is wrong (for example Enoch was also a son of Cain). However, note that this issue is also addressed in New Testament.

Analyzing of information presented on this page is complete (even with spaces hypothesis). That is, all variants of translation were considered carefully. No warranty however, that nothing is missing.
