Gen 4:23 - And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for I have slain a man to my wounding ( Cain), and a young man to my hurt (Tubal-Cain).

Tubalcain was the inventor of metal devices that kills, namely, bow and arrow and spear.  Cain lived unto his 7th generation, namely, Jabal, Jubal, Tubalcain and Naamah.  Jewish tradition says that Cain became blind and his mark made him like a wild animal.  Lamech, his 6th generation also became blind.  One day, Tubalcain, Cain’s 7th generation, took Lamech on a hunting trip.  Tubalcain heard some noises in some brushes and told his father, Lamech, where the animal noise was coming from.  Lamech, being blind but sensitive to noise, took aim and shoot.  When Lamech took out his arrow and placed his hands on the dead animal, he found out that it was Cain and his anger was directed to his son, Tubalcain and he shoot his arrow in his direction and killed him also.  The “man to my wounding” was his great-great-grandfather Cain and “a young man to my hurt” was his own son, Tubalcain.  Nothing was heard from Lamech from that day on.
