Genesis 4 ©
The birth, occupation, and religious behaviour of Cain and Abel. The murder of Abel, and the indictment, and curse of Cain for it. Enoch born; the first city built; the generations of Cain. Lamech and his two wives. The birth of Seth and Enos.
AND Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare 1Cain, and said, I have *gotten a man from the LORD.
And she again bare his brother 2Abel. And Abel was a 3keeper of sheep, but Cain was a *tiller of the ground.
And 4in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very *wroth, and his countenance fell.
If thou doest well, shalt thou not 6be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And 7unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
And Cain said unto the LORD, 9My punishment is greater than I can bear.
And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael: and Mehujael begat Methusael: and Methusael begat 11Lamech.
¶And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah.
And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents, and of such as have cattle.
And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ.
And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, an 12instructer of every *artificer in brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah.
And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice; ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: for 13I have slain a man to my wounding, and a young man to my hurt.
If Cain shall be avenged ssevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.
¶And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name 14Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.
And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name 15Enos: then began men 16to call upon the name of the LORD.
