1 While Na’amah was yet a child, great consternation fell upon the seed of Qayin, for Iraḏ the son of Ḥanoḵ, the son of Qayin, had become a member of the secret combination and was privy to all it secrets until one night when 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 appeared to him in a dream saying, Iraḏ, thou hast done evil instead of good and hast followed after Satan rather than Elohim; wherefore, I shall destroy thee and thine house when I send in the floods upon the earth.

2 But Iraḏ was pricked in his heart and pled with 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 to show mercy and preserve his seed through the great flood.

3 Seeing that his penitence was true, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 said to him, Iraḏ, if thou wilt repent and reveal the evils of the secret combination unto the sons of Shĕth, I will have mercy upon thee and I will join thy seed unto the seed of Shĕth that it may be preserved through the great flood.

4 Wherefore, Iraḏ went forth and began to reveal the secrets of the sons of Qayin unto the sons of Shĕth.

5 Lemeḵ, being Master Mahan at that time, found Iraḏ sitting in his garden with Yoram, the young son of Iraḏ, and slew him.

6 Thus Lemeḵ slew Iraḏ for the sake of the oath of the secret combination and he slew Iraḏ’s son with him.

7 But Tuḇal-Qayin, the son of Lemeḵ, had followed him and viewed his evil deed which he had committed and he revealed it unto his mother Tsillah and she unto her sister Aḏah.

8 Wherefore, Aḏah and Tsillah confronted Lemeḵ with his evil and cursed him in the name of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 for having slain Iraḏ who had repented of his wickedness from among the sons of men.

9 And Lemeḵ said unto his wives Aḏah and Tsillah, Hear my voice, ye wives of Lemeḵ; hearken unto my speech, for I have slain a man to my wounding and a young man to my hurt.

10 If Qayin shall be avenged seven-fold, truly Lemeḵ shall be seventy and seven-fold.

11 Lemeḵ’s wives, therefore, feared to confront him further, but Lemeḵ repented not of his evil deeds and finding his son Tuḇal-Qayin at prayer, he slew him for having revealed his murders.

12 When Aḏah and Tsillah, the wives of Lemeḵ, learned of this, they took their remaining sons and daughters and went unto their father Kena’an’s city and revealed the remainder of the secrets of this evil combination among the sons of Aḏam.

13 Thus did Na’amah come to dwell among the sons of Aḏam and she grew up before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 in righteousness and was known for her tender care toward the sick and the unfortunate.

14 Nevertheless, she had not husband because she was of the forbidden race.
