Genesis 4:6-8 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

And Yahweh said to Cain, “Why are you angry, and why is your face fallen? If you do well will I not accept you?[a] But if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. And its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”

Then[b] Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let us go out into the field.”[c] And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.


  1. Genesis 4:7 Literally “a lifting up”; this is an abbreviation of the Hebrew idiom “to lift up the face,” which means “to accept or regard with favor”
  2. Genesis 4:8 Or “And”
  3. Genesis 4:8 This phrase is not present in the Hebrew; it is supplied in other versions Samaritan, Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate
