Gen 2:4–4:26

2:4–4:26 Moses’ narration moves from the prologue concerning the creation of heaven and earth to the account (2:4 note and text note) of heaven and earth. Moses treats the creation and probation of Adam and Eve in Paradise (2:4–25), their fall into sin and its consequences (ch. 3), the escalation of sin in the ungodly line of Cain (4:1–24), and the preservation of a godly remnant in the line of Seth (4:25, 26).
