<​16/​> And Gillah <​Zillah​>, she also bear Tubal Cain; an artificer instructor of evry artificeer in Brass, & Iron, & the Sister of Tubal Cain was called Naamah. <​/​> & Lamech said unto his wives, Adah & Zillah <​17/​> hear my voice, ye wives of Lamech; hearken unto my speach for I have slain a man to my wounding, & a young man to my hurt. If Cain shall be avenged seven fold, truly Lamech shall be seventy & seven fold. For, Lamech having entered into a covenant with Satan, after the manner of Cain wherein he became Master Mahan, Master of that great secret which was administered unto Cain, by Satan, & Irad, the Son of Enoch, having known their secret began to reveal it unto the sons of Adam; wherefore, Lamech being angery, slew him not like unto Cain, his brother Abel, for the sake of getting gain, but he slew him for the oaths sake; for, from the days of Cain, there was a Secret combination & their works were in the dark, & they knew evry man his brother. <​/​> <​18/​> Wherefore the Lord cursed Lamech & his house & all they that had covenanted with Satan for they kept not the commandm ents of God & <​And​> it displeased God & he ministered not unto them & their works were abominations & began to spread among all the Sons of men And it was among the Sons of men, And among the daughters of men these things were not spoken, Because that Lamech had spoken the Secret unto his wives & they Rebelled against him & declared these things abroad & had not compassion. <​/​>

<​19/​> Wherefore Lamech was dispised, & cast out & came not among the Sons of men lest he should die & thus the works of darkness began to prevail among all the Sons of men & God cursed the Earth with the a sore curse & was angery with the wicked with all the sons of men whom he had made For they would not hearken unto his voice nor believe on his only begotten Son even him which <​whom​> he declared should come in the maridian of time. <​/​> which <​who​> was prepared from before the foundation of the <​20/​> World. <​/​> & thus the Gospel began to be Preached from the begining being declared by Holy Angels sent forth from the presence of God & by his own voice, & by the gift of the Holy Ghost.
