Adam and Eve had two sons. They named them Cain, the oldest, and Abel. When the boys grew up, Abel became a shepherd and Cain became a farmer. One day the two sons brought sacrifices (gifts) to the Lord. Cain’s offering was something he had grown. Abel’s was a lamb. The Lord was pleased with Abel’s offering. But he was not pleased with Cain’s. This made Cain very angry. The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you so angry? If you had done the right thing, I would have been pleased with you as well. Sin is trying to get the best of you, be careful!” Cain paid no attention to the warning of the Lord. One day while Cain and Abel were out in the fields, Cain attacked Abel and killed him.

Because of that you will not be able to get the ground to grow anything. You will be a homeless wanderer!” Cain cried, “This punishment is too much! I won’t be able to stand it. I have to go away from this land and from you—whoever sees me will kill me!” So the Lord put a mark on Cain so no one would kill him. Then Cain went away and lived in the land of Nod, which means “Wandering.” Thus Cain was punished for his sin. After Cain killed his brother and was sent away, Adam and Eve had many other children.
