This is the first person in the Bible where the names of his wives are known. Additionally it is the first account of poligamy in the Bible.

Lamech killed a man. It was a young man who obviously injured Lamech. He tells his wives "if Cain is avanged seven times, then Lamech is seventy-seven times". Maybe this is, because Lamech's killing was more just.
