Genesis 4:1-17

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).

NOTES

Cain means 'acquisition'. He was the first son of Adam and Eve. He became a farmer and worked with Abel.

BIRTH

Genesis 4:1-2 - 'And Adam lay with his wife Eve, and she became pregnant and gave birth to Cain. She said, "With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man." Later she gave birth to his brother Abel.

The Book of Jubilees - 4:1 - 'And in the third week in the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Awan. (7 years is a week: 7 weeks of 7 years each is 49 years = Jubilee. The first Jubilee is 49 years, then add 2 1/2 weeks of the second Jubilee (not the beginning and not the end but 'in' the second Jubilee) which would be between 3 & 4 years. Cain probably was born when Adam was about 67 years old - 3937 B.C.)

CAIN'S WIFE

The Book of Jubilees 4:9 '... And Cain took Awan his sister to be his wife and she bare him Enoch at the close of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee, houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called its name after the name of his son Enoch.' (Four Jubilees would be about 196 years - Enoch was born about - 3808 B.C.)

NOTES: Cain brought an offering to the Lord from the 'end of the days' of the fruit of the ground. He lacked a sincerity in his faith and his deeds were evil. Abel brought his offering from the firstlings of his flock. He came before God in true faith and dedication to righteousness. Abel's sacrifice was respected but Cain's was not. (If we are striving to live a righteous life according to His will when we give God our offerings and thanksgiving, then He takes pleasure in that and will respect our offering.)

CAIN KILLED ABEL

Cain became the first murderer when he became jealous of Abel and killed his brother.

Genesis 4:3-11: 'And 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. And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper? And he said, What has thou Done: the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground. And now are thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand. Cain apparently did not have remorse or repent of killing his brother Abel. He separated himself from God and lived without His help.

GOD'S PROTECTION OF CAIN

Genesis 4:15: 'And the Lord said unto him. Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.

Genesis 4:16: 'Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

Cain was the first city-dweller. He was condemned to be a restless wanderer, Cain built the first city, Enoch.

Cain's Family established a way of self-reliance & self- redemption and built their lives around secular things and business. They left God out of their lives.


Cain and Abel in Islam


Cain and Abel (Arabic: هابيل ,قابيل , Qabil and Habil) are believed by Muslims to have been the first two sons of Adam and Eve, although they are not mentioned by their names in the Quran. The story in the Qur'an[1] is virtually the same as the Hebrew Bible narrative, saying that both the brothers were asked to offer up individual sacrifices to God. God accepted Abel's sacrifice because of Abel's righteousness and Cain, out of jealousy, slew Abel. This was the first ever sin committed upon Earth but Abel was chronicled in history as one of the first believers and as the first ever martyr. Although Islam does not traditionally view Abel as a prophet, some scholars speak of him as a prophet like his father.

In the Qur'an

Of Adam's first children, Cain was the elder son and Abel the younger. Each of them presented a sacrifice to God but it was accepted only from Abel, because of the latter's righteous attitude and his faith and firm belief in God. After the offering of their sacrifices, Cain, the wicked sibling, taunted Abel out of envy and told him that he would surely slay him. Abel justly warned Cain that God only accepted the sacrifice of those that are righteous in their doings. He further went on to tell Cain that if Cain did indeed try to slay him, Abel would not retaliate and slay him because the God-fearing would never murder for the sake of envy. Abel then told Cain that in murdering him, he would carry the weight not only of his sin but also of the sins of his victim. The victim, as a result, in suffering the injustice, would be forgiven his own sins and the murderer, while being warned, would consequently increase his own sin. Abel preached powerfully and reminded Cain that the punishment for murder would be that he would spend the afterlife in the fires of Hell.

The innocent pleading and preaching of Abel had no effect upon Cain, for he was full of arrogance, pride and jealousy. He subsequently slew the righteous Abel, but in doing so, he ruined himself and became of those who remain lost. This would be the earliest example of the murder of a righteous man taking place upon the earth. In the future, many other evildoers would slay the wise and pious believers.

Right after the murder took place, Allah (God) sent a crow who scratched the ground to show Cain how to hide the dead body of his brother. Cain, in his shame, began to curse himself[6] and he became full of guilt. The thought of the crime at last came to the murderer, as he realized indeed how dreadful it was to slay anyone, the more so as the victim was an innocent and righteous man. Full of regrets, Cain was marked with deep sorrow. The Qur'an states, "Then he became one of those who regretted." 5:31 (Chapter 5, verse 31)

Message

The Qur'an states that the story of Cain and Abel was a message[7] for mankind, as it had told them about the consequences of murder and that the killing of a soul would be as if he/she had slain the whole of mankind. But the Qur'an states that still people rejected the message of the story and continued to commit grave sins, slaying prophets, messengers as well as the righteous people. All the prophets who preached since the time of Adam were persecuted, insulted or reviled in one way or another. With some righteous men, however, the Qur'an states that people went one step further, in attempting to slay them or indeed slaying them. The Qur'an itself mentions the slaying of the righteous, saying "As to those who deny the Signs of God and in defiance of right, slay the prophets, and slay those who teach just dealing with mankind, announce to them a grievous penalty".


In psychoanalytic theory


Freud’s theory of fratricide is explained by the Oedipus or Electra complex through Jung's supplementation. Indeed, in the Old Testament, in particular in the Judaic, Midrash Rabba, and Islamic versions, wherein Cain and Abel are not the only offspring of Adam and Eve, but born as twins with one sister each. In that regard, Abel and Cain were the first two sons, each of whom was born with a twin sister, and Adam decided that, to avoid incest, Abel would marry Cain's sister and Cain would marry Abel's sister. However, Cain refused because he wanted to keep his own sister, while Abel respected the paternal law. Adam suggested sacrificial offerings, and, in his absence, God accepted Abel's lamb rather than Cain's offering of grass. As a result of this preference, Cain killed Abel. However, this interpretation does not relate to the preference of the sacrifices by God, but rather to the acceptance or rejection of God's law. Abel obeyed this law while Cain did not, and, as a result, Cain killed Abel.

Legacy and symbolism

Allusions to Cain and Abel as an archetype of fratricide appear in numerous references and retellings, through medieval art and Shakespearean works up to present day fiction. A millennia-old explanation for Cain being capable of murder is that he may have been the offspring of a fallen angel or Satan himself, rather than being from Adam.

A medieval legend has Cain arriving at the Moon, where he eternally settled with a bundle of twigs. This was originated by the popular fantasy of interpreting the shadows on the Moon as a face. An example of this belief can be found in Dante Alighieri's Inferno (XX, 126) where the expression "Cain and the twigs" is used as a kenning for "moon".

In medieval Christian art,[dubious – discuss] particularly in 16th century Germany, Cain is depicted as a stereotypical ringleted, bearded Jew, who killed Abel the blonde, European gentile symbolizing Christ.[59] This traditional depiction has continued for centuries in some form, such as James Tissot's 19th century Cain leads Abel to Death.

In the treatise on Christian Hermeticism, Meditations on the Tarot: A journey into Christian Hermeticism, describes the biblical account of Cain and Abel as a myth, i.e. it expresses, in a form narrated for a particular case, an "eternal" idea. It shows us how brothers can become mortal enemies through the very fact that they worship the same God in the same way. According to the author, the source of religious wars is revealed. It is not the difference in dogma or ritual which is the cause, but the "pretention to equality" or "the negation of hierarchy".

In Latter-day Saint theology, Cain is considered to be the quintessential Son of Perdition, the father of secret combinations (i.e. secret societies and organized crime), as well as the first to hold the title Master Mahan meaning master of [the] great secret, that [he] may murder and get gain.

In Mormon folklore — a second-hand account relates that an early Mormon leader, David W. Patten, encountered a very tall, hairy, dark-skinned man in Tennessee who said that he was Cain. The account states that Cain had earnestly sought death but was denied it, and that his mission was to destroy the souls of men.[62][63] The recollection of Patten's story is quoted in Spencer W. Kimball's The Miracle of Forgiveness, a popular book within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[64] This widespread Mormon belief is further emphasized by an account from Salt Lake City in 1963 which stated that "One superstition is based on the old Mormon belief that Cain is a black man who wanders the earth begging people to kill him and take his curse upon themselves (M, 24, SLC, 1963)."

There were other, minor traditions concerning Cain and Abel, of both older and newer date. The apocryphal Book of Adam and Eve tells of Eve having a dream in which Cain drank his brother’s blood. In an attempt to prevent the prophecy from happening the two young men are separated and given different jobs.
