He said, "What have you done? 1The voice of your brother'sblood is crying to Me from the ground.
11"Now2you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother'sblood from your hand.
"3When you cultivate the ground, it will nolongeryield its strength to you; 4you will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth."
13Cainsaid to the LORD, "My punishment is toogreat to bear!
14"Behold, You have 5driven me this day from the face of the ground; and from Your face I will be hidden, and 6I will be a vagrant and a wanderer on the earth, and 7whoeverfinds me will kill me."
So the LORDsaid to him, "ThereforewhoeverkillsCain, vengeance will be taken on him 8sevenfold." And the LORDa9appointed a sign for Cain, so that noonefinding him would slay him.
