The history of Cain and Abel.
 And Adam knew Eve his wife: who conceived and brought forth Cain, saying: I have gotten a man through God.
 And again she brought forth his brother Abel. And Abel was a shepherd, and Cain a husbandman.
 And it came to pass after many days, that Cain offered, of the fruits of the earth, gifts to the Lord.
 "I have slain a man": It is the tradition of the Hebrews, that Lamech in hunting slew Cain, mistaking him for a wild beast; and that having discovered what he had done, he beat so unmercifully the youth, by whom he was led into that mistake, that he died of the blows.
 But to Seth also was born a son, whom he called Enos; this man began to call upon the name of the Lord.
 "Began to call upon": Not that Adam and Seth had not called upon God, before the birth of Enos; but that Enos used more solemnity in the worship and invocation of God.
