According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch (//) was a son of Cain, grandson of Adam, 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 got pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch. The city Cain founded in the Land of Nod was named after his son (Genesis 4:17). According to Jubilees 4:9, Enoch's mother was named Awan.
