Genesis 4:21-23 - The ways of Cain

And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle. And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructor of every artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
Can any good come out of Cain, the wicked one (1 John 3:12)? From out of Cain's lineage came Jabel, Jubal and Tubalcain; the fathers of nomads, music and metalwork. Cain himself built the first city mentioned in the bible. Are these the ways of Cain that Jude 1:11 warns us not go after ("Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain")?
