Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have gottena a man with the help of the LORD."
And again, she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a worker of the ground.
In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of 1the fruit of the ground,
and Abel also brought of 2the firstborn of his flock and of their fat portions. And the LORD3 had regard for Abel and his offering,
but 4for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his face fell.
The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen?
75If you do well, will you not be accepted?b And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. 6Its desire is forc you, but you must rule over it."
