"What became of Cain?" (Alleged Contradiction #E2412)
And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood from thy hand; when thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.
How could Cain, who was a “fugitive and a vagabond,” have a wife and son, and build a city?
Cain was a fugitive and a vagabond without any permanent dwelling. However, this does not prevent him from having a wife, a son, and even trying to build a small city before having to move to another place.
