Depiction of Cain establishing the city of Enoch, by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld.
|Parent(s)||Awan and Cain|
Enoch (; Hebrew: ?; n) is a character in the Book of Genesis. He is described as a son of Cain, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife became pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch.
After the birth of Enoch, the Hebrew text of Genesis 4:17 is unclear. Either Cain built a city and named it after Enoch, or else Enoch built a city.
