Cain Murders Abel

8And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him. 9And the LORD said to Cain, Where is Abel your brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? 10And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries to me from the ground. 11And now are you cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand; 12When you till the ground, it shall not from now on yield to you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be in the earth. 13And Cain said to the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear. 14Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of the earth; and from your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth; and it shall come to pass, that every one that finds me shall slay me. 15And the LORD said to him, Therefore whoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark on Cain, lest any finding him should kill him. 16And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelled in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.
