And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto Jehovah. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And Jehovah had respect unto Abel and to his offering: but unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell. And Jehovah said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen? If thou doest well, shall it not be lifted up? and if thou doest not well, sin coucheth at the door; and unto thee shall be its desire; but do thou rule over it.

So it came about [a]in the course of time that Cain brought an offering to the Lord of the fruit of the ground. (A)Abel, on his part also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And (B)the Lord had regard for Abel and for his offering; but (C)for Cain and for his offering He had no regard. So (D)Cain became very angry and his countenance fell. Then the Lord said to Cain, “(E)Why are you angry? And why has your countenance fallen? (F)If you do well, [b]will not your countenance be lifted up? (G)And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; and its desire is for you, (H)but you must master it.”
