Beginning with chapter 4 of Genesis contrast is seen between the line of Cain who chose to disobey God and the line of Seth who chose to follow God

! Book DescriptionContextGW Ge 4:25

Adam's Godly Descendants-Adam to Enosh 25 Adam made love to his wife again. She gave birth to a son and named him Seth, because {she said,} "God has given me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him."

KJV Ge 4:25

Birth of Seth and Enos 25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

Another son needed to be born of the good seed so the our Redemer could come.

Seth, the son of Adam and Eve was born in the 130th year of Adams life. Was called "a pefect man" and was in the likeness of his father. The record says that he lived 912 years. During his lifetime he did "all which his Father commanded him to do". It was through Seth that the line of all of the prophets came. Cain on the other hand followed Satan and worshiped him, rejecting the teachings of his father Adam, and so was cursed with a dark skin, all dark skinned people may be able to trace their birthright through Cain. His lineage can be traced to the wife of Ham, the son of Noah, Ham's wife Egyptus was of the lineage of Cain.
