Genesis 4New International Version
Cain and Abel
4 Adam[a] made love to his wife(A) Eve,(B) and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain.[b](C) She said, “With the help of the Lord I have brought forth[c] a man.” 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.(D)
Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.(E)3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering(F) to the Lord.(G)4 And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions(H)from some of the firstborn of his flock.(I) The Lordlooked with favor on Abel and his offering,(J) 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.
