Genesis 4


4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bore
 Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
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 process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of
 the fruit of the ground an offering to the LORD.
4:4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock,
 and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect to Abel, and
 to his offering:
4:5 But to Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain
 was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
4:6 And the LORD said to Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is
 thy countenance fallen?
4:7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou
 doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And to thee [shall be]
 his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass
 when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his
 brother, and slew him.
4:9 And the LORD said to Cain, Where [is] Abel thy brother? And
 he said, I know not: [Am] I my brother's keeper?
4:10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy
 brother's blood crieth to me from the ground.
4:11 And now [art] thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened
 her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
4:12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield
 to thee its strength: A fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be
 in the earth.
4:13 And Cain said to the LORD, My punishment [is] greater than
 I can bear.
4:14 Behold, thou hast driven me this day from the face of the
 earth; and from thy 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 findeth me will slay me.
4:15 And the LORD said to him, Therefore whoever slayeth Cain,
 vengeance shall be taken on him seven-fold. And the lord set a
 mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.
4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt
 in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
4:17 And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived, and bore Enoch:
 and he built a city, and called the name of the city, after the
 name of his son Enoch.
4:18 And to Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and
 Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat Lamech.
4:19 And Lamech took to him two wives: the name of the one [was]
 Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
4:20 And Adah bore Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell 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 Tubalcain, an instructor of every
 artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubalcain [was]
 Naamah.
4:23 And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my
 voice, ye wives of Lamech, hearken 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 seven-fold, truly Lamech seventy
 and seven-fold.
4:25 And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son, and
 called his name Seth: For God, [said she], hath appointed me
 another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he
 called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of
 the LORD.
