And Abel became a keeper of sheep, and Cain became a tiller of the ground. 3 And {in the course of time}c Cain brought an offering from the fruit of the ground to Yahweh, 4 and Abel also brought [an offering] from {the choicest firstlings of his flock}.d And Yahweh looked with favor to Abel and to his offering, 5 but to Cain and to his offering he did not look with favor.
