Did Cain’s children share his punishment?


The punishment of Cain was that he could no longer produce anything from the ground of the earth (Gen. 4:11-13). This punishment was specifically for the murder of his brother (Gen. 4:10). There is no mention of this punishment extending to anyone other than Cain, nor can any inference be drawn based on the details of the story.
