Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Forsooth Adam knew Eve his wife, which conceived, and childed Cain, and said, I have gotten a man by God. (And Adam knew his wife Eve, who conceived, and bare Cain, and she said, Now, with the Lord's help, I have begotten a man.) 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 And again she childed his brother Abel. Forsooth Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain was an earth-tiller. (And then she bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a shepherd, and Cain was a farmer, who worked the soil.) 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil.
3 Soothly it was done after many days, that Cain offered gifts to the Lord of the fruits of the earth ; 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD.
4 and Abel offered of the first engendered of his flock, and of the fatness of those. And the Lord beheld to Abel and to the gifts of him; 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 soothly he beheld not to Cain and to his gifts. And Cain was wroth greatly, and his cheer felled down (And Cain was greatly angered, and 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 And the Lord said to him, Why art thou wroth, and why felled down thy face? 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
