11 And now (A)you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. 12 When you work the ground, it shall no longer yield to you its strength. You shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.” 13 Cain said to the Lord, “My (B)punishment is greater than I can bear.[a] 14 Behold, (C)you have driven me today away from the ground, and (D)from your face I shall be hidden. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, (E)and whoever finds me will kill me.”
