Did Cain’s children share his Curse and Punishment?

Full Question

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.
