    Genesis 4

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:1

    2 And again she bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.ASV — Genesis 4:2

    3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto Jehovah.ASV — Genesis 4:3

    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:ASV — Genesis 4:4

    5 but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.ASV — Genesis 4:5

    6 And Jehovah said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?ASV — Genesis 4:6

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:7

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:8

    9 And Jehovah said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: am I my brother`s keeper?ASV — Genesis 4:9

    10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother`s blood crieth unto me from the ground.ASV — Genesis 4:10

    11 And now cursed art thou from the ground, which hath opened its mouth to receive thy brother`s blood from thy hand;ASV — Genesis 4:11

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:12

    13 And Cain said unto Jehovah, My punishment is greater than I can bear.ASV — Genesis 4:13

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:14

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:15

    16 And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.ASV — Genesis 4:16

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:17

    18 And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methushael; and Methushael begat Lamech.ASV — Genesis 4:18

    19 And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.ASV — Genesis 4:19

    21 And his brother`s name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe.ASV — Genesis 4:21

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:22

    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:ASV — Genesis 4:23

    24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, Truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.ASV — Genesis 4:24

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:25

    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.ASV — Genesis 4:26
