My Strong's Concordance cites the first reference to worship in Gen 22.5, when Abraham tells the two servants that he and Isaac will go ahead of them to worship, and then return.  However, in Gen 8.20, Noah built an altar and offered holocaust to God, as Abraham did in Gen 22. 
Thanks for good inspiration to do some review.

Wonderful post.  I made a deck of cards of the prophecies about Jesus many years ago and have often started to try to put them in date order but somehow never get it finished. Tonight, you've motivated me to try again, and I am tempted to suggest the answer is Deut 18.17, pseudo-Moses, until I found the following in my NAB Concordance:
Deut is presented as a long discourse by Moses on the plains of Moab; but no modern reader could be deceived by that literary fiction???
Deut had several editions- first appeared in Northern Kingdom c 700BC.  It emigrated (?) to Judah but was lost until discovery during temple restoration in 622BC.
During exile it received definitive redaction (?), then later was placed in Pentateuch with final chapters added.
I'll stand with this guess, and thank you for motivation, but hope I learn a lot more here, and resolve to work further on my cards.

As it is, Catholics are allowed to believe in the Mosaic authorship of the 5 Books of Moses. You are not required to believe that Moses literally penned them, but it is a matter of divine Revelation that the Law or Torah was given through Moses by God. Jesus quotes Moses as the being the author of the Law in the Gospels and the book of Acts.
The Apostle Peter said Acts 3:22 For Moses said, 'The Lord your God will send you a prophet, just as he sent me, and he will be one of your own people. You are to obey everything that he tells you to do.

Citing Deuteronomy 18:15
The Lord thy God will raise up to thee a PROPHET of thy nation and of thy brethren like unto me: him thou shalt hear:

Jacob declares in Genesis 49:10
The sceptre shall not be taken away from Juda, nor a ruler from his thigh, till he come that is to be sent, and he shall be the expectation of nations.

11Tying his foal to the vineyard, and his ass, 0 my son, to the vine. He shall wash his robe in wine, and his garment in the blood of the grape.

12His eyes are more beautiful than wine, and his teeth whiter than milk.

This is a messianic prophecy concerning the Savior of the Gentiles

In my Chronological Bible, Psalm 58/59 is listed
«Unto the end, destroy not, for David for an inscription of a title, when Saul sent and watched his house to kill him.»? ?{1 Samuel 19.}?
(58–2) Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; and defend me from them that rise up against me.?
?(58–3) Deliver me from them that work iniquity, and save me from bloody men.?
?(58–4) For behold they have caught my soul: the mighty have rushed in upon me:?
?(58–5) Neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord: without iniquity have I been, and directed my steps.?
?(58–6) Rise up thou to meet me, and behold: even thou, O Lord, the God of hosts, the God of Israel. Attend to visit all the nations: have no mercy on all them that work iniquity.?
?(58–7) They shall return at evening, and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city.?
?(58–8) Behold they shall speak with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips: for who, say they, hath heard us??
?(58–9) But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them: thou shalt bring all the nations to nothing.?
?(58–10) I will keep my strength to thee: for thou art my protector:?
?(58–11) My God, his mercy shall prevent me.?
?(58–12) God shall let me see over my enemies: slay them not, lest at any time my people forget. Scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord, my protector:?
?(58–13) For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips: and let them be taken in their pride. And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of,?
?(58–14) When they are consumed: when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more. And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, and all the ends of the earth.?
?(58–15) They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city.?
?(58–16) They shall be scattered abroad to eat, and shall murmur if they be not filled.?
?(58–17) But I will sing thy strength: and will extol thy mercy in the morning. For thou art become my support, and my refuge, in the day of my trouble.?
?(58–18) Unto thee, O my helper, will I sing, for thou art God my defence: my God my mercy.

The Wedding at Cana
John 2:11
11Jesus performed this first miracle in Cana in Galilee; there he revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him.

John 2:1-10
there was a wedding in the town of Cana in Galilee. Jesus' mother was there, 2and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding. 3When the wine had given out, Jesus' mother said to him, “They are out of wine.”

4“You must not tell me what to do,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.”

5Jesus' mother then told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

6The Jews have rules about ritual washing, and for this purpose six stone water jars were there, each one large enough to hold between twenty and thirty gallons. 7Jesus said to the servants, “Fill these jars with water.” They filled them to the brim, 8and then he told them, “Now draw some water out and take it to the man in charge of the feast.” They took him the water, 9which now had turned into wine, and he tasted it. He did not know where this wine had come from (but, of course, the servants who had drawn out the water knew); so he called the bridegroom 10and said to him, “Everyone else serves the best wine first, and after the guests have drunk a lot, he serves the ordinary wine. But you have kept the best wine until now!”

NetBible first mentions Esau and Jacob, born to Isaac and Rebekah (Gen 25.26).

After thinking of Bl Ava in another post, I'm reminded of the first married couple to have been canonized in the same ceremony, according to an article I found the other day.  Can you recall who, when, where, and anything about when their miracles occurred?

The first city I notice (in Gen 4.17) is Enoch, founded by Cain and named after his son.  Another source called it a town but didn't provide other info.
