Allusion is so made to the etymology in Genesis 4:1, that קִין would seem to be the same as קָנָה, “she bare Cain (a creature [rather a possession, see קָנָה ]), and said, I have created [rather possessed or acquired] a man by the help of Jehovah” [of course this is the true derivation].
(b) of the tribe of the Kenites, Numb. 24:22 Judges 4:11 see קֵינִי.
(c) of a town of the tribe of Judah, with the art. Joshua 15:57.
