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.
||If Cain shall be revenged seven times, then for Lemekh it shall be seventy-seven times.'
Ki shiv'atayim yukam-Kayin veLemech shiv'im veshiv'ah.
|I have killed...|
According to traditions, Lemekh had just killed Cain and Tuval Cain.
