Genesis 4:4-6 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

And Abel also himself brought of the firstfruits of his sheep, and of the fat of them, and the Lord had respect unto Abel, and to his offering,

But unto Cain and to his offering he had no [a]regard: wherefore Cain was exceedingly wroth and his countenance fell down.

Then the Lord said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance cast down?


  1. Genesis 4:5 Because he was an hypocrite, and offered only for an outward show without sincerity of heart.

Genesis 4:4-6 New International Version (NIV)

And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast?
