Genesis 4

Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have acquired a man from the Lord.
2 And she bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a shepherd of sheep, and Cain was a farmer.

3 After some time, Cain brought a gift from the fruits of the earth to the Lord,
4 and Abel also brought from his first-born flocks and from their fat. And the Lord looked upon Abel and his gift,
5 but he didn’t look at Cain and the gift. Cain was very upset, and his face dropped.

6 And the Lord said to Cain, Why are you upset? and why did your face go down?
7 if you do good, do you look up? and if you do not do good, then sin lies at the door; he draws you to him, but you rule over him.

eight And Cain said to Abel his brother. And when they were in the field, Cain rebelled against his brother Abel, and killed him.

nine And the Lord said to Cain: Where is Abel thy brother? He said: I do not know; Am I my brother's keeper?
ten And said: what have you done? the voice of your brother’s blood cries out to me from the earth;
eleven and now you are cursed from the earth, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand;
12 when you cultivate the earth, it will no longer give its strength to you; you will be an exile and a wanderer on the earth.

13 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than it is possible to bear;
fourteen behold, now you are driving me from the face of the earth, and from thy face I will hide, and I will be an exile and a wanderer on the earth; and anyone who meets with me will kill me.
fifteen And the Lord said unto him, For all that kill Cain, he will avenge himself in every way. And the Lord made a sign to Cain, that no one meeting him would kill him.

16 And Cain went on behalf of the Lord and settled in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
17 And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city; and named the city after the name of his son: Enoch.
18 Enoch was born Irad; Irad gave birth to Mehiael; Mehiael begat Methuselah; Methuselah gave birth to Lamech.

19 And Lamech took two wives for himself: the name of one: Ada, and the name of the second: Zillah.
20 Ada gave birth to Jabal: he was the father of those living in tents with herds.
21 The name of his brother was Jubal: he was the father of all playing the harp and pipe.
22 Zilla also gave birth to Tuvalkain, who was the kovach of all copper and iron tools. And the sister of Tuvalkain Noah.

23 And Lamech said unto his wives: Adah and Zillah! listen to my voice; Wives Lamechova! listen to my words: I killed my husband in an ulcer for me and a lad in my wound;
24 if Cain is avenged in all measures, then for Lamech seventy times in all measures.

25 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son, and called his name Seth, because, [she said], God laid me another seed, instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.
26 Seth also had a son, and he called his name Enos; then they began to invoke the name of the Lord.
