1John 3:15 1John 3:10 1John 3:12 Luke 11:51 John 8:44 Gen 47:3 Amos 7:15
3 Time passed and Cain brought some of the produce of the soil as an offering for Yahweh,
Num 18:12 Lev 2:1-11 Neh 13:6 1Kgs 17:7
4 while Abel for his part brought the first-born of his flock and some of their fat as well. Yahweh looked with favour on Abel and his offering.
Heb 11:4 Prov 3:9 Exod 13:12 Num 18:17 Ps 20:3 1Chr 21:26 1Kgs 18:24
5 But he did not look with favour on Cain and his offering, and Cain was very angry and downcast.

Lev 26:36 Deut 28:23-24 Hos 9:17 Lev 26:20 Deut 28:65-66 Gen 3:17-18 Gen 4:14
13 Cain then said to Yahweh, 'My punishment is greater than I can bear.
Job 15:22 Rev 16:9 Rev 16:11 Rev 16:21
14 Look, today you drive me from the surface of the earth. I must hide from you, and be a restless wanderer on earth. Why, whoever comes across me will kill me!'
Num 35:19 Job 15:20-24 Ps 143:7 Prov 28:1 Deut 28:65 Gen 4:15-16 Gen 9:5-6
15 'Very well, then,' Yahweh replied, 'whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.' So Yahweh put a mark on Cain, so that no one coming across him would kill him.
Ezek 9:4 Gen 4:24 Ps 79:12 Ezek 9:6 Rev 14:9 Rev 14:11 1Kgs 16:7
