Genesis 4
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And Adam had sexual intercourse with Eve his wife and she became pregnant and she bore Qayn, and she said, “I have obtained a man for LORD JEHOVAH.” 2And she added to give birth to his brother Habyl, and Habyl was a Shepherd of sheep, and Qayn was a Farmer in the earth. 3And it was that after some days, Qayn brought from the fruit of the ground an offering to LORD JEHOVAH. 4And Habyl brought also that from the first born of his flocks, and from their fat, and LORD JEHOVAH was pleased with Habyl and his offering. 5And with Qayn and with his offering he was not pleased, and it displeased Qayn greatly, and his face was sad. 6And LORD JEHOVAH said to Qayn, “Why does it seem evil to you, and why was your face saddened? 7Behold, if you do right, I accept it, and if you will not do right, sin lies in wait before the door; you are going to be converted to it and it will have authority over you.”

8And Qayn said to Habyl his brother, “Let us proceed to the plain”; and it was that when they were in a field, Qayn arose against Habyl his brother and killed him.

9And LORD JEHOVAH said to Qayn, “Where is Habyl your brother?” And he said, “I do not know, for am I my brother’s keeper? 10And LORD JEHOVAH said to him, “What have you done? The voice of the blood of your brother cries to me from the Earth. 11Therefore, you are cursed from the Earth that has opened her mouth and she has received the blood of your brother from your hands 12When you shall cultivate in the earth, she will not increase when she gives to you her power; shaken and trembling you will be in the earth.” 13And Qayn said to LORD JEHOVAH, “My crime is greater than what may be forgiven. 14Behold, you have cast me out today from the face of the Earth, and I shall be hidden from before you, and I shall be shaken and trembling in the earth, and everyone whoever will find me will kill me” 15And LORD JEHOVAH said to him, “No! Anyone murdering Qayn shall each be paid sevenfold in this way.” And LORD JEHOVAH laid a sign on Qayn, so that no one who finds him would kill him.

16And Qayn went out from before LORD JEHOVAH and dwelt in the land of Nod—Trembling, from the East of Eden.

17And Qayn had sexual relations with his wife, and she conceived, and she bore Khenok, and he was the builder of a city, and he called the name of the city by the name of his son, Khenok. 18And Aydar was born to Khenok, and Aydar begot Mekhuyl, and Mekhuyl begot Methushyl, and Methushyl begot Lamek. 19And Lamek took to himself two wives; the name of one was Ada and the name of the other was Tsala. 20And Ada bore Yabal; he was the father to tent dwellers and cattle owners. 21And the name of his brother was Yubal; he was the father to all who hold the psaltery and harp. 22And Tsala also gave birth to Tubal Qayn, a worker in every work of brass and of iron, and the sister of Tubal Qayn was Naama.

23And Lamek said to his wives, Ada and Tsala: “Hear my voice, wives of Lamek; incline to my speech, because I have killed a man with my wounds, and a boy with my beating.

24Because Qayn shall be rewarded sevenfold, and Lamek seventy and seven.”

25And Adam had sexual relations again with Eve, his wife, and she conceived, and she bore a son, and she called his name Shayth, because God gives to me another seed for the sake of Habyl, whom Qayn killed.” 26And also to Shayth a son was born, and he called his name Enosh; then he began to call on the Name of LORD JEHOVAH.
