||God said to him, 'Indeed! Whoever kills Cain will be punished seven times as much.' God placed a mark on Cain so that whoever would find him would not kill him.
Vayomer lo Adonay lachen kol-horeg Kayin shiv'atayim yukam vayasem Adonay le-Kayin ot levilti hakot-oto kol-motse'o.
||Cain went out from before God's presence. He settled in the land of Nod, to the east of Eden.
Vayetse Kayin milifney Adonay vayeshev be'erets-Nod kid'mat-Eden.
(cf. Rashi). La-khen in Hebrew, literally 'to yes.' the word is usually translated as 'therefore.'
|seven times as much|
Or, 'Do not dare kill Cain! He will be punished after seven [generations]' (Rashi). Indeed, Cain was killed after seven generations by Tuval Cain (see note on Genesis 4:23).
Hebrew for isolation or wandering, see note on Genesis 4:12.
