Genesis Chapter 4

1 And the Red-one has perceived152 אֶת-Eve his woman, and she is conceiving and bearing אֶת-Spearhead,153 and saying, `I have bought154 a man אֶת-Yahweh.`155

2 And she is adding to bear156 אֶת-his brother, אֶת-Vapor.157 And he is becoming Vapor, one-who-tends a sheep,158 and Spearhead has become one-who-serves the red-one.

3 And he is becoming from the cut-off159 of the days, and Spearhead is causing to come in from the fruit of the Red-one a gift to Yahweh.

4 And Vapor has caused to come in, also himself, from the firstborn-ones160 of his sheep, from their fatty-ones.161 And Yahweh is gazing162 toward Vapor and toward his gift. 5 And toward Spearhead and toward his gift he has not gazed. And he is burning163 to Spearhead exceedingly, and his faces are falling.164

6 And Yahweh is saying toward Spearhead, `Why has he burned to-yourself? And why has your faces fallen?165

7 Is there not, if you are creating-good,166 an exalted-one?167 And if you are not creating-good, to the Opening a miss-offering is he-who-lies-stretched-out,168 and toward you is his runner, and yourself is ruling in-himself.`169

8 And Spearhead is speaking toward Vapor his brother, and he is becoming in their becoming in the Field, and Spearhead is standing up toward Vapor his brother, and he is slaying him.

9 And Yahweh is saying toward Spearhead, `Where is Vapor your brother?` And he is saying, `I have not perceived. Is him-who-guards170 my brother myself?`

10 And he is saying, `What have you made? A voice of the blood-ones171 of your brother are those-who-cry172 toward myself from the Red-one. 11 And now, he-who-is-cursed173 is yourself from out of the Red-one, which has parted174 אֶת-her mouth to take אֶת-the blood-ones of your brother from your hand. 12 For when you are serving אֶת-the Red-one, she is not adding175 to give her strong-one to-yourself. One-who-moves-to-and-fro176 and one-who-waves177 you are becoming in the Earth.`

13 And Spearhead is saying toward Yahweh, `A great-one is my bowed-one178 from lifting up.179

14 Behold, you have driven אֶת-me the Hot-one from upon the faces of the Red-one, and from your faces I am being concealed. And I have become one-who-moves-to-and-fro, and one-who-waves in the Earth, and he has become the whole of the one-who-is-finding me is slaying me.`15 And Yahweh is saying to-himself, `To an upright, the whole of the one-who-slays Spearhead, seven-times he is being avenged.180` And Yahweh is placing for Spearhead a sign to except the smiting of אֶת-him the whole of him-who-finds him.181

16 And Spearhead is going out from-to the faces182 of Yahweh, and he is sitting in the Earth of Waving183 in front [east] of Eden.

17 And Spearhead is perceiving אֶת-his woman, and she is conceiving, and is bearing אֶת-Narrow, and he is becoming he-who-builds an awake-one,184 and he is calling-out the name of the awake-one, according to the name of his builder, Narrow.185 18 And being born to Narrow אֶת-Fugitive and Fugitive has begotten אֶת-Struck-by-El; and Struck-by-El has begotten אֶת-Man-of-El; and Man-of-El has begotten אֶת-Lamech.186

19 And Lamech is taking to-himself a pair187 of women, the name of the One is Ornament, and the name of the Second is Shade.188

20 And Ornament is bearing אֶת-Stream,189 himself has become father of him-who-sits tents, and a bought-one.190 21 And the name of his brother is Stream,191 himself has become father of the whole of him-who-seizes the harp and pipe. 22 And Shade, also himself, has born אֶת-She-is-Led-to-Spearhead,192 he-who-hammers the whole of him-who-is-engraved193 in bronze and iron; and a sister of She-is-Led-to-Spearhead is Pleasant.194 23 And Lamech is saying to his women—`Ornament and Shade, hear my voice, Women of Lamech, give ear to my saying: For a man I have slain for my wound, and a born-one195 for my blow196; 24 For sevenfold is being avenged for Spearhead, And for Lamech seventy and sevenfold.`197

25 And Red-one is perceiving again198 אֶת-his woman and she is bearing a builder, and is calling-out אֶת-his name Set-one,199 for elohim has set to-myself the seed of the back-one,200 underneath Vapor, for Spearhead has slain him.201

26 And to Set-one, also himself, a builder has been born,202 and he is calling-out אֶת-his name Mortal-man;203 at that time he has untied204 to call-out in the name of Yahweh.
