Tubal-Cain

Additional Links

TUBAL-CAIN . In Genesis 4:22 ‘the father of every forger of copper and iron’ (so read, with slight textual correction), i.e. the founder of the guild or profession of metal-workers. The name seems to be made up of Tubal (or the Tibareni, noted for production of bronze articles ( Ezekiel 27:13 )) and Cain (‘smith’), as the ancestor of the Kenites or ‘Smiths.’
