  1 H120 And Adam H3045 knew H2332 Eve H802 his wife; H2029 and she conceived, H3205 and gave birth to H7014 Cain, H559 and said, H7069 I have gotten H376 a man H854 from H3068 the Lord.
  2 H3254 And she again H3205 gave birth to H251 his brother H1893 Abel. H1893 And Abel H7462 was a keeper H6629 of sheep, H7014 but Cain H5647 was a tiller H127 of the ground.
  3 H7093 And in process H3117 of time H7014 it came to pass, that Cain H935 brought H6529 of the fruit H127 of the ground H4503 an offering H3068 unto the Lord.
  4 H1893 And Abel, H1931 he H935 also brought H1062 of the firstborn H6629 of his flock H2459 and of the fat H3068 there. And the Lord H8159 had respect H1893 unto Abel H4503 and to his offering:

  7 H518 If H3190 you do well, H7613 shall you not be accepted? H3190 And if you do not well, H2403 sin H7257 crouches H6607 at the door. H8669 And to you shall be his desire, H4910 but you shall rule over him.

  9 H3068 And the Lord H559 said H7014 unto Cain, H335 Where H1893 is Abel H251 your brother? H559 And he said, H3045 I know H251 not: Am I my brother's H8104 keeper?
  10 H559 And he said, H4100 What H6213 have you done? H6963 The voice H251 of your brother's H1818 blood H6817 cries H127 unto me from the ground.
  11 H779 And now are you cursed H127 from the earth, H6475 which has opened H6310 her mouth H3947 to receive H251 your brother's H1818 blood H3027 from your hand;
  12 H3588 When H5647 you till H127 the ground, H3254 it shall not henceforth H5414 yield H3581 unto you her strength; H5128 a fugitive H5110 and a vagabond H776 shall you be in the earth.
  13 H7014 And Cain H559 said H3068 unto the Lord, H5771 My punishment H1419 is greater H5375 than I can carry.
  14 H1644 Behold, you have driven me out H3117 this day H6440 from the face H127 of the earth; H5921 and from H6440 your face H5641 shall I be hidden; H5128 and I shall be a fugitive H5110 and a vagabond H776 in the earth; H1961 and it shall come to pass, H4672 that every one that finds me H2026 shall kill me.
  15 H3068 And the Lord H559 said H3651 to him, Therefore H2026 whoever slays H7014 Cain, H5358 vengeance shall be taken H7659 on him sevenfold. H3068 And the Lord H7760 set H226 a mark H7014 upon Cain, H1115 lest H4672 any finding H5221 him should kill him.
  16 H7014 And Cain H3318 went out H6440 from the presence H3068 of the Lord, H3427 and lived H776 in the land H5113 of Nod, H6926 on the east H5731 of Eden.
  17 H7014 And Cain H3045 knew H802 his wife; H2029 and she conceived, H3205 and bore H2585 Enoch: H1129 and he built H5892 a city, H7121 and called H8034 the name H5892 of the city, H8034 after the name H1121 of his son, H2585 Enoch.

  20 H5711 And Adah H3205 gave birth to H2989 Jabal: H1 he was the father H3427 of such as live H168 in tents, H4735 and of such as have cattle.
  21 H251 And his brother's H8034 name H3106 was Jubal: H1 he was the father H8610 of all such as handle H3658 the harp H5748 and organ.

  23 H3929 And Lamech H559 said H802 unto his wives, H5711 Adah H6741 and Zillah, H8085 Hear H6963 my voice; H5647 you until H3929 of Lamech, H238 listen H565 unto my speech: H2026 for I have slain H376 a man H6482 for my wounding, H3206 and a young man H2250 for my hurt.

  25 H120 And Adam H3045 knew H802 his wife H5750 again; H3205 and she gave birth to H1121 a son, H7121 and called H8034 his name H8352 Seth: H430 For God, H7896 said she, has appointed H312 me another H2233 seed H8478 instead H1893 of Abel, H3588 whom H7014 Cain H2026 killed.
  26 H8352 And to Seth, H1931 to him H3205 also there was born H1121 a son; H7121 and he called H8034 his name H583 Enos: H2490 then began men H7121 to call H8034 upon the name H3068 of the Lord.

  31 H6944 And you shall be holy H582 men H398 unto me: neither shall you eat H1320 any flesh H2966 that is torn of animals H7704 in the field; H7993 you shall cast H3611 it to the dogs.

Matthew 26:52-54

  52 G5119 Then G3004 said G2424 Jesus G846 to him, G654 Put up G4675 your G3162 sword G1519 into G846 his G5117 place: G1063 for G3956 all G2983 they that take G3162 the sword G622 shall perish G1722 by G3162 the sword.

  54 G4459 But how G3767 then G4137 would G1124 the scriptures G4137 be fulfilled, G3754 that G3779 thus G1163 it must G1096 be?
