BBE 1 And the man had connection with Eve his wife, and she became with child and gave birth to Cain, and said, I have got a man from the Lord. NIV 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." BBE 2 Then again she became with child and gave birth to Abel, his brother. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a farmer. NIV 2 Later she gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel kept flocks, and Cain worked the soil. BBE 3 And after a time, Cain gave to the Lord an offering of the fruits of the earth. NIV 3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the LORD. BBE 4 And Abel gave an offering of the young lambs of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord was pleased with Abel's offering; NIV 4 But Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The LORD looked with favor on Abel and his offering, BBE 5 But in Cain and his offering he had no pleasure. And Cain was angry and his face became sad.

NIV 6 Then the LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
