Harp playing began with Adam’s great great great great great grandson Jubal

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for the interesting weather. One minute a cool breeze and then 60 seconds later a downpour of rain. Six minutes later it is back to a nice day with a cool breeze. Thank you for illustrating “change” to us in this visible and experiential way! And also thank you for the scripture that points out how important musical instruments are, right down to letting us know who started it all! Thank you for Jubal :)

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. And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech. And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. (Genesis 4:17-21)

Lord, I’m here. I’m here to talk with you. And I’m here on behalf of your daughter Lindsey who plays a stringed instrument just like Jubal. And today I ask that you allow Lindsey glimpses into the history of violin music, as far back as is knowable today. I ask that she have opportunity to meet people who have researched and studied the historical aspects of string instruments. And I ask that you let this historical basis aid her in playing and composing her music today. And the glory goes to you God. All the glory is yours. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NASB:
Cain had relations with his wife and she conceived, and gave birth to Enoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city Enoch, after the name of his son. Now to Enoch was born Irad, and Irad became the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael became the father of Methushael, and Methushael became the father of Lamech. Lamech took to himself two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other, Zillah. Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock. His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe.

NET:

Cain had marital relations with his wife, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Enoch. Cain was building a city, and he named the city after his son Enoch. To Enoch was born Irad, and Irad was the father of Mehujael. Mehujael was the father of Methushael, and Methushael was the father of Lamech. Lamech took two wives for himself; the name of the first was Adah, and the name of the second was Zillah. Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the first of those who live in tents and keep livestock. The name of his brother was Jubal; he was the first of all who play the harp and the flute.

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
