Hebrew Names Version (HNV) New International Version (NIV)
1 The man knew Havah his wife. She conceived, and gave birth to Kayin, and said, "I have gotten a man with the LORD's help." 1 Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, "With the help of the LORD I have brought forth a man."
2 Again she gave birth, to Kayin's brother Hevel. Hevel was a keeper of sheep, but Kayin was a tiller of the ground. 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.
3 As time passed, it happened that Kayin brought an offering to the LORD from the fruit of the ground. 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD.
4 Hevel also brought some of the firstborn of his flock and of the fat of it. The LORD respected Hevel and his offering, 4 But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering,
5 but he didn't respect Kayin and his offering. Kayin was very angry, and the expression on his face fell. 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.
6 The LORD said to Kayin, "Why are you angry? Why has the expression of your face fallen? 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
