Cain and Abel

1 Adama lay with his wife1 Eve,2 and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain.b3 She said, "With the help of the LORD I have brought forthc a man." 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.4 Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.5 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering6 to the LORD.7 4 But Abel brought fat portions8 from some of the firstborn of his flock.9 The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering,10 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast. 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry?11 Why is your face downcast?
