 4:6
4:4 Abel also offered some of the firstborn of his flock, from the fattest ones. God paid heed to Abel and his offering,
VeHevel hevi gam-hu mibechorot tsono umechelvehen vayisha Adonay el-Hevel ve'el-minchato.
4:5 but to Cain and his offering, He paid no heed. Cain became very furious and depressed.
Ve'el-Kayin ve'el-minchato lo sha'ah vayichar le-Kayin me'od vayiplu panav.
4:6 God said to Cain, 'Why are you so furious? Why are you depressed?
Vayomer Adonay el-Kayin lamah charah lach velamah nafelu fanecha.



Commentary:
