Genesis 4:1-5 King James Version

Cain and Abel

4 1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, [1] and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord. 2 And she again bare his brother Abel. [2] And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

3 And in process [3] of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the Lord. 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock [4] and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
