Cain is subsequently noted -- just two verses later -- as acquiring a wife and children, although the Biblical account to that point did not specifically mention the existence of any human beings other than Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel. I would therefore say that the implication must be that Adam and Eve had other children whom the Biblical account does not mention, and that Cain found his wife from among those other children or their descendants. By contrast, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, the twelve tribes of Israel, and, ultimately, Jesus (with respect to His humanity) were all descended from Seth, the son whom Eve bore to Adam after Cain killed Abel (Genesis 4:25).
