Jay P. Green's Literal Translation 1993

 

   

4:1And the man knew his wife Eve. And she conceived and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man with the help of Jehovah.
4:2And she continued to bear his brother, Abel. And Abel became a shepherd of flocks. And Cain became a tiller of the ground.
4:3And in the end of days, it happened that Cain brought an offering to Jehovah from the fruit of the ground.
4:4And Abel brought, he also, from the firstlings of his flocks, even from their fat. And Jehovah looked to Abel and to his offering.
4:5And He did not look to Cain and to his offering. And Cain glowed greatly with anger, and his face fell.
4:6And Jehovah said to Cain, Why have you angrily glowed, and why has your face fallen?
4:7If you do well, is there not exaltation? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is toward you; but you should rule over it.
4:8And Cain talked with his brother Abel. And it happened as they were in the field, Cain rose up against His brother Abel, and killed him.
4:9And Jehovah said to Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?
4:10And He said, What have you done? The voice of the blood of your brother cries to Me from the ground.
4:11And now you are cursed more than the ground which opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
4:12When you till the ground, it will not again give its strength to you. You shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth.
4:13And Cain said to Jehovah, My punishment is greater than I can bear.
4:14Behold! You have driven me out from the face of the earth today. And I shall be hidden from Your face. And I shall be a vagabond and a fugitive on the earth. And it will be that anyone who finds me shall kill me.
4:15And Jehovah said to him, If anyone kills Cain, he shall be avenged sevenfold. And Jehovah set a mark on Cain, so that anyone who found him should not kill him.
4:16And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah. And he lived in the land of Nod, east of Eden.
4:17And Cain knew his wife, and she conceived and bore Enoch. And he built a city, and he called the name of the city according to the name of his son, Enoch.
4:18And Irad was born to Enoch; and Irad fathered Mehujael And Mehujael fathered Methusael; and Methusael fathered Lamech.
4:19And Lamech took two wives to himself: the name of the first was Adah; and the name of the second was Zillah.
4:20And Adah bore Jabal; he was the father of those living in tents, and with cattle.
4:21And the name of his brother was Jubal; he was the father of all those playing the harp and the organ.
4:22And Zillah also bore Tubalcain, the hammerer of every engraving tool of bronze and iron. And the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah.
4:23And Lamech said to his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice, you wives of Lamech; listen to my words; for I have killed a man because of my wound, and a young man because of my hurt.
4:24For Cain is avenged sevenfold, and Lamech seventy seven.
4:25And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son. And she called his name, Seth, for God has appointed to me another seed in place of Abel because Cain killed him.
4:26And a son was also born to Seth, and he called his name, Enos. Then it was begun to call on the name of Jehovah.
