Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:1 - Now the man [fn]had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to [fn]Cain, and she said, “I have gotten a [fn]manchild with the help of the LORD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:2 - Again, she gave birth to his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of flocks, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:3 - So it came about [fn]in the course of time that Cain brought an offering to the LORD of the fruit of the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:4 - Abel, on his part also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and for his offering;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:5 - but for Cain and for his offering He had no regard. So Cain became very angry and his countenance fell.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:6 - Then the LORD said to Cain, “Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen?

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:7 - “If you do well, [fn]will not your countenance be lifted up? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, but you must master it.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:8 - Cain [fn]told Abel his brother. And it came about when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:9 - Then the LORD said to Cain, “Where is Abel your brother?” And he said, “I do not know. Am I my brother’s keeper?”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:10 - He said, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to Me from the ground.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:11 - “Now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:12 - “When you cultivate the ground, it will no longer yield its strength to you; you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:13 - Cain said to the LORD, “My punishment is too great to bear!

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:14 - “Behold, You have driven me this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face I will be hidden, and I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:15 - So the LORD said to him, “Therefore whoever kills Cain, vengeance will be taken on him sevenfold.” And the LORD [fn]appointed a sign for Cain, so that no one finding him would slay him.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:16 - Then Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and [fn]settled in the land of [fn]Nod, east of Eden.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:17 - Cain [fn]had relations with his wife and she conceived, and gave birth to Enoch; and he built a city, and called the name of the city Enoch, after the name of his son.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:18 - Now to Enoch was born Irad, and Irad [fn]became the father of Mehujael, and Mehujael [fn]became the father of Methushael, and Methushael [fn]became the father of Lamech.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:19 - Lamech took to himself two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other, Zillah.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:20 - Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who dwell in tents and have livestock.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:21 - His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:22 - As for Zillah, she also gave birth to Tubal-cain, the forger of all implements of bronze and iron; and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:23 - Lamech said to his wives,
“Adah and Zillah,
Listen to my voice,
You wives of Lamech,
Give heed to my speech,
For I [fn]have killed a man for wounding me;
And a boy for striking me;

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:24 - If Cain is avenged sevenfold,
Then Lamech seventy-sevenfold.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:25 - Adam [fn]had relations with his wife again; and she gave birth to a son, and named him [fn]Seth, for, she said, “God [fn]has appointed me another [fn]offspring in place of Abel, for Cain killed him.”

Unchecked Copy BoxGen 4:26 - To Seth, to him also a son was born; and he called his name Enosh. Then men began to call [fn]upon the name of the LORD.
