Cain was the firstborn son of Adam & Eve, and worked the land. Cain’s genealogy talks about how he built a city, and how his descendants became nomadic herdsmen, musicians (lyre & flute), and craftsmen (making bronze & iron tools).

When Cain and Abel present an offering to the Lord, Abel, being a shepherd, brought the first-born (i.e. best) calves, while Cain being a farmer, brought flaxen seeds (i.e. the least worthy). Abel’s offering was accepted and Cain’s was not. This makes Cain furious, and despite God warning him to master his sinful feelings, Cain attacks his brother in a field and kills him.

God curses Cain for his great sin, taking away the ability for Cain to grow anything from the Earth. Being a farmer-type, this takes away Cain’s livelihood, and fearing for his life he pleads with God. Mercifully, God places a mark on Cain to protect him from being killed by others. He was eventually accidentally killed by his own 3rd great-grandson, i.e. 7th generation, Lamech.

The Talmud records that none of his descendants survived the Great Flood. -------------------- Caín era labrador y cazador; hijo del campo, pero era muy envidioso y tenía muy mal genio. . . Pasó el tiempo, y un día Caín llevó al Señor una ofrenda del producto de su cosecha. También Abel llevó al Señor las primera y mejores crías de sus ovejas. El Señor miró con agrado a Abel y a su ofrenda, pero no miró así a Caín ni a su ofrenda, por lo que Caín se enojó muchísimo y puso muy mala cara. Entonces el Señor le dijo: “¿Por qué te enojas y pones tan mala cara? Si hicieras lo bueno, podrías levantar la cara; pero como no lo haces, el pecado está esperando el momento de dominarte. Sin embargo, tú puedes dominarlo a él.” Un día, Caín invitó a su hermano Abel a dar un paseo, y cuando los dos estaban ya en el campo, Caín atacó a su hermano Abel y lo mató. (Gén. 4:3-8).
