Cain and Abel
4:1 And Adam knew Chavah (Eve) his wife; and she conceived,
and bore Cain (gotten, or, acquired), and
said I have gotten a man from YEHOVAH.
4:2 And she again bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but
Cain was a tiller of the ground.
4:3 And in the end of days it happened, that Cain brought of the
fruit of the ground an offering to YEHOVAH.
4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and even from there fat. And YEHOVAH had respect to Abel
and his offering:
4:5 But to Cain and his offering he had not respect. And Cain glowed
greatly with anger, and his face fell.
4:6 And YEHOVAH said to Cain, Why have you angrily glowed? And why is
your face fallen?
4:7 If you do well, is there not acceptance? And if you do not well,
sin lies at the door. And to you shall be it's desire, but you
shall rule over it.
4:8 And Cain talked with his brother Abel, And as they were in the
field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
4:9 And YEHOVAH said to Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he
said, I know not; Am I my brother's keeper?
4:10 And he said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's bloods cry to me from the
The curse of Cain
4:11 And now are you cursed from the earth,
which have opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from
4:12 When you till the ground, it will not again yield to
you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be in the
4:13 And Cain said to YEHOVAH My punishment is greater than
I can bear.
4:14 Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face
of the earth; and from your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a
fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it will come to pass,
that every one that find me shall kill me.
4:15 And YEHOVAH said to him, If anyone kills Cain, he shall
be avenged sevenfold. And YEHOVAH set a mark upon Cain unless any
finding him should kill him.
4:16 And Cain went out from the face of YEHOVAH and dwelt in
the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
4:17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived and bore Chanoch (Enoch) and he built a city, and called the
name of the city, after the name of his son, Chanoch (Enoch).
4:18 And to Chanoch (Enoch) was born Irad: and Irad begat
Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat
4:19 And Lemech took to him two wives: the name of the one
was Adah, and the name of the other was Zillah.
4:20 And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as stay
in tents, and of such as have cattle.
4:21 And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of
all such as handle the harp and organ.
4:22 And Zillah , she also bore Tubal-cain, an instructor of every artificer in brass
and iron; and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
4:23 And Lemech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my
voice; you wives of Lemech, listen to my speech; for I have
slain a man to my wounding and a young man to my hurt.
4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lemech
seventy and sevenfold.
Birth of Seth
4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bore a son, and called his name Seth (Appointed or put out):
For Eloheem said she, has appointed me another seed instead of
Abel, whom Cain killed.
4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he
called his name Enosh (To call themselves by the name of
YEHOVAH): then began men to call upon the name of YEHOVAH.
