“¶ And the LORD said vnto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And hee said, I know not: Am I my brothers keeper?”
King James Version (KJV)
6. And the LORD said vnto Cain, Why art thou wroth? And why is thy countenance fallen? 7. If thou doe well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sinne lieth at the doore: And vnto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule ouer him. 8. And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to passe when they were in the field, that Cain rose vp against Abel his brother, and slew him. 9. ¶ And the LORD said vnto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And hee said, I know not: Am I my brothers keeper? 10. And he said, What hast thou done? the voyce of thy brothers blood cryeth vnto me, from the ground. 11. And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receiue thy brothers blood from thy hand. 12. When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yeeld vnto thee her strength: A fugitiue and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.
