From Adam to the Flood. The Bible gives evidence of the existence of lists of family relationships from man's beginning. At the birth of Adam's son Seth, Eve said: "God has appointed another seed in place of Abel, because Cain killed him." (Ge 4:25) Representatives of the line begun by Seth survived the Flood. (Ge 5:3-29, 32; 8:18; 1Pe 3:19, 20)
Cain's descendants are listed in part and include men who distinguished themselves in nomadic stock raising, the playing of musical instruments, and the forging of metal tools as well as those who were known for their practice of polygamy and their violence. (Gen. 4:17-24) Cain's line ended with the global Flood of Noah's day.
The relevant genealogy of Adam is in Genesis chapter 5. Leon R.
Kass (The Beginning of Wisdom: Reading Genesis) regards
Genesis chapter 5 as a third and wholly new creation story,
distinct in content and form both from the cosmological account of
Genesis 1 and from the paradigmatic story of the prototypical human
beings, Adam and Eve and sons (Genesis 2:4-4:26).
In other words, this genealogy comes from a separate tradition that did not involve Cain and Abel. The earlier tradition concludes in Genesis chapter 4 with the descendants of Cain.
