Lemekh said to his wives, 'Adah and Tzillah, hear my voice; wives of Lemekh, listen to my speech. I have killed a man by wounding [him], and a child by bruising [him].
Vayomer Lemech lenashvav Adah veTsilah shma'an koli neshey Lemech ha'azenah imrati ki ish haragti lefits'i veyeled lechaburati.

Ki shiv'atayim yukam-Kayin veLemech shiv'im veshiv'ah.
