1: And the man knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with [the help of] Jehovah. 2: And again she bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 3: And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto Jehovah. 4: And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And Jehovah had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 5: but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. 6: And Jehovah said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? 7: If thou doest well, shall it not be lifted up? and if thou doest not well, sin coucheth at the door: and unto thee shall be its desire, but do thou rule over it. 8: And Cain told 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. 9: And Jehovah said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: am I my brother's keeper? 10: And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. 11: And now cursed art thou from the ground, which hath opened its mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand; 12: when thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee its strength; a fugitive and a wanderer shalt thou be in the earth. 13: And Cain said unto Jehovah, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14: Behold, thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the ground; and from thy face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer in the earth; and it will come to pass, that whosoever findeth me will slay me. 15: And Jehovah said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And Jehovah appointed a sign for Cain, lest any finding him should smite him. 16: And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. 17: And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. 18: And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methushael; and Methushael begat Lamech. 19: And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah. 20: And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents and [have] cattle. 21: And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe. 22: And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, the forger of every cutting instrument of brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah. 23: And Lamech said unto his wives: Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; Ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: For I have slain a man for wounding me, And a young man for bruising me: 24: If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, Truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold. 25: And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth. For, [said she], God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel; for Cain slew him. 26: And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enosh. Then began men to call upon the name of Jehovah.
