Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew.(had sex with).Eve his wife and she conceived and bare.Cain.(Eve had Cain & Abel; who then did Cain have children by?).and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.

Genesis 4:2 And she again.(Cain was the firstborn; he killed his brother Abel, verse 8 below), bare his brother.Abel.('Abel' means 'stone').. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground.

Genesis 4:2 And she again, bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. 

Genesis 4:3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.

Genesis 4:4-6 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen?

Genesis 4:4-6 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect.(with Cain it was not a willing offering from heartfelt thanks, just an inconvenience he felt he should do, thinking things would go well for him even if he did not heartfully do his part; not really caring, it was just a physical thing to do; like many of those in superstitious religion today who go to church and give offerings, but their heart is far from how proper teachings in a church should affect one's heart:.Matthew 15:8). And Cain was very wroth and his countenance fell. And the LORD said unto Cain, Why are you wroth? and why is your countenance fallen? 

Genesis 4:7 If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, sin lies at the door.(?). And unto you is its desire and you may rule over it.

Genesis 4:7 If you do well, shall you not be accepted? and if you do not well, sin.(Adam Clarke's Commentary by Gary Gallant:."the words 'chattath' and 'chattaah' {original Hebrew and original Greek}, frequently signify sin, but I have observed more than a hundred places in the Old Testament where they are used for 'sin offering' "; Creator-God was actually offering him 'a way out', being kind to him; Cain's mistake was he didn't use self-introspection to ask himself about why he was reacting as he was to his brother's favor with the Creator and why would this have been important. If he had done that with an attitude of humility, he would have done good instead of the arrogant.way of a bully he did behave. Lacking a humble attitude he was unable to clearly see the good example of his brother. Lacking a humble attitude he didn't care about learning to be a better person. All Cain could see was the physical side of life and that as he saw fit only for himself:.1John 3:12).lies at the door.(that is, it's now your responsibility to do something about it to make it right and if you carry on as you have been, you're heading in the way of destruction). And unto you is its desire.(original for this entire last sentence is 'desire', 'rule', which seems to mean 'have a desire to rule yourself' or improve yourself by presenting not such a cheap offering as you have done).and you may rule over it. (though God talked to Cain about how to improve his relationship with God and thus his life, he couldn't have cared less; Cain never answered God, just shrugging it off as having no value, acting as though God wasn't even there; like, leave me alone to live my life as I please:.Jeremiah 44:16,17; Cain had an insolent.attitude)

Genesis 4:8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother. And it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and slew him.

Genesis 4:9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not. Am I my brother's keeper?

Genesis 4:10-12 And he said, What have you done? the voice of your brother's blood cries unto me from the ground. And now are you cursed from the earth, which has opened her mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand. When you till the ground it shall not henceforth yield unto you her strength. A fugitive and a vagabond shall you be on the earth.

Genesis 4:13,14 And Cain said unto the LORD, My punishment is greater than I can bear.(Cain is concerned only with how this incident would affect him; what about his good brother that he murdered and his mom and dad's feelings of anguish over it?; Cain wasn't a good guy). Behold, you have driven me out this day from the face of the earth and from your face shall I be hid and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth and it shall come to pass, that every one that finds me will want to slay me.

Genesis 4:15 And the LORD said unto him, Therefore whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. And the LORD set a mark upon Cain.(something that would make others stay away from him), lest any finding him should kill him.

Genesis 4:16 And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden.

Genesis 4:17 And Cain knew his wife and she conceived and bare Enoch and he builded a city and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch.

Genesis 4:18,19 And unto Enoch was born Irad and Irad begat Mehujael and Mehujael begat Methusael and Methusael begat Lamech. And Lamech took unto him two wives, the name of the one was Adah and the name of the other Zillah.

Genesis 4:20-22 And Adah bare Jabal. He was the father of such as dwell in tents and of such as have cattle. And his brother's name was Jubal. He was the father of all such as handle the harp and organ. And Zillah, she also bare Tubalcain, an instructer of every artificer in brass and iron and the sister of Tubalcain was Naamah. 

Genesis 4:23 And Lamech said unto his wives, Adah and Zillah, Hear my voice you women of Lamech, hearken unto my speech, for I have slain a man to my wounding and a young man to my hurt.

Clarke's Commentary:."It is supposed that Lamech had slain a man in his own defence and that his wives being alarmed lest the kindred of the deceased should seek his life in return. To quiet their fears he makes this speech in which he endeavours to prove that there was no room for fear on this account, for if the slayer of the wilful murderer, Cain, should suffer a seven-fold punishment.(Genesis 4:15), surely he, who should kill Lamech for having slain a man in self-defence, might expect a seventy-seven-fold punishment."

Genesis 4:24 If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold.

Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again and she bare a son and called his name Seth. For God said she, has appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.(verses 1-12).

Genesis 4:26 And to Seth.(first son of Adam after the death of Abel), to him also there was born a son and he called his name Enos who began calling upon the name of the LORD..(he was spiritually inclined)

Genesis 5:1-3 This is the book of the generations of Adam.(original was just 'man from Earth', 'red earth', but we had to call him something, so translators used 'Adam'). In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him. Male and female created he them and blessed them and called his name Adam in the day when they were created. And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years and begat a son.(130 years since Adam at creation time).in his own likeness, after his image and called his name Seth.

Genesis 5:4 And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years and he begat sons and daughters.

Genesis 5:5 And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years. And he died.

Genesis 5:6,7 And Seth.(1Chronicles 1:1-4).lived an hundred and five years and begat Enos.(1Chronicles 1:1-4; this was 235 years since man was created on the Earth). And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years and begat sons and daughters.

Genesis 5:8 And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years and he died. 

Genesis 5:9 And Enos lived ninety years and begat Cainan..(this was 325 years since man was created)

Genesis 5:10,11 And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years and begat sons and daughters. And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years and he died.

Genesis 5:12,13 And Cainan.(Genesis 5:12,13; but not the Cainan referred to in Luke 3:33-38).lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel.(1Chronicles 1:1-4; this was 395 years since man was created). And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years and begat sons and daughters.

Genesis 5:14 And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years and he died.

Genesis 5:15-17 And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years and begat Jared.(1Chronicles 1:1-4; this was 460 years since the first man who was called Adam). And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years and begat sons and daughters. And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years and he died.

Genesis 5:18 And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years and he begat Enoch..(this was 622 years since mankind was created)

Genesis 5:19,20 And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years and begat sons and daughters. And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years. And he died.

Genesis 5:21-23 And Enoch lived sixty and five years and begat Methuselah.(this was 687 years since mankind was created). And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years and begat sons and daughters. And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years.

Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God. And he was not, for God took him.(took him where?.Hebrews 11:5).

Genesis 5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years and begat Lamech..(this was 874 years since man was created on the Earth)

Genesis 5:26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years and begat sons and daughters.

Genesis 5:27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years. And he died..(Methuselah lived 969 years and dies before the flood)

Genesis 5:28,29 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years and begat a son.(this was 1056 years since the first human was created who was named Adam); And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD has cursed..(and how long did Noah live:.Genesis 9:28,29)

Genesis 5:30 And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years and begat sons and daughters

Genesis 5:31 And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years and he died.

Genesis 5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old and Noah begat Shem, Ham and Japheth..(this was 1556 years since man was created and 100 years before the flood:.Genesis 7:6; Job came on the scene about B.C.E. 1500, so was contemporary with Noah)

so, from Adam:
Adam.(*).was 130 years old when he had his firstborn; Adam's age at death was 930 years; chapter 5:1-5 above

Seth.was 105 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.235 years since.Adam was created; Seth's age at death was 912 years; chapter 5:6-8 above

Enos.was 90 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.325 years since.Adam was created; the age of Enos at his death was 905 years; chapter 5:9-11 

Cainan.was 70 years when he had his firstborn and this was.395 years since.Adam was created; Cainan's age at death was 910; chapter 5:12-14

Mahaleleel.was 65 years old when he had his firstborn and this was 460 years since Adam was created; Mahaleleel's age at death was 895 years; chapter 5:15-17

Jared.was 162 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.622 years since.Adam was created; Jared's age at death was 962 years; chapter 5:18-20, above

Enoch.(*).was 65 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.687 years since.Adam was created; Enoch didn't die but his days on Earth were 365 years; chapter 5:21-24

Methuselah.was 187 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.874 years since.Adam was created; Methuselah's age at death was 969 years.(why not so long now?); chapter 5:25-27

Lamech.was 182 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.1056 years since.Adam was created; Lamech's age at death was 777 years; chapter 5:28-31

Noah.(*).was 500 years old when he had his firstborn and this was.1556 years since.Adam was created; chapter 5:32; add 100 years to the beginning of the deluge/flood, which lasted 1 year, so the year the deluge was over was.1657 years.from Adam and 2343 years before the time of Christ or from today 4362 years ago.

A next major name in Old Testament history was Abraham, who came along about the year B.C.E. 2000. And about a thousand years later, along came the equally famous character, David.

Genesis 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born unto them,

Genesis 6:2 That the sons of God.(who were these guys?).saw the daughters of men that they were fair and they took them wives of all which they chose.

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh, yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.

Genesis 6:3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive.(the Creator saw that generally, man didn't improve even if given much time to do so; Creator wasn't going to put up with how they were for as long as they could live, so man's life span back then, which was long {Genesis 5:25-31}, was reduced).with man, for that he also is flesh.(man is spirit with a 'slowed down' form of it we call flesh), yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years..(the Creator reduced mankind's general life span from what it was; how?)

Genesis 6:4 There were giants.in the earth in those days and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

Genesis 6:4 There were giants.in the earth.(original, 'land', Deuteronomy 2:10,11,20,21; 3:11,13; Joshua 17:15; 18:16; 13:12; 1Samuel 17:4; 2Samuel 21:16,20,22; Amos 2:9).in those days and also after that, when the sons of God.came in unto the daughters of men and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men.(original 'prevailers', controllers).which were of old.(original 'everliving' beings), men.(these small 'g' gods could appear as men, as angels today also can do:.Hebrews 13:2).of renown.(*) such as was Goliath, the giant David slew.

Were these 'sons of God' those that came down from the sky and whom ancients could only best describe as 'gods' such as have been recorded in mythology? Many of them back then were giants.

These 'sons of God', these giants, are often called angels, but were mainly, we think, the high ranking ones:.Genesis 1:1. These 'gods' we designate with a small 'g'. 

Some of these small 'g' gods didn't like it that they would be helping this new mankind race become one day over them:.Hebrews 1:13; 1Corinthians 6:3. At this beginning of time for mankind, these gods, were so much greater than mankind:.2Peter 2:4; Job 1:6; Jude 1:6; Numbers 13:33.

The large 'G' God word is used to mean, there is only the one good God:.Isaiah 44:8 "...Is there a God beside me? yea, there is no God. I know not any."

There were more than one God setting up the universe, but the verse means here the good God, called good because of what was done and what is being done by the good one.

Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil.continually.

Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination.(the whole imagination; the Hebrew word signifies not only the imagination, but also the purposes and desires, the main drive of an individual; his core being, where man thinks he's ok just as he is and he isn't).of the thoughts of his heart was only evil.continually.

There is often seems like no hope for the person of low consciousness to awaken from his continual blinding unless there is a physical jolt to his life and/or God calls him to an awakening:.1Corinthians 1:26. And today who is God calling?:.Acts 17:30)

Genesis 6:6 And it repented.(made him sorry).the LORD that he had made man on the earth and it grieved him at his heart.

Genesis 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast and the creeping thing and the fowls of the air, for it repents me that I have made them.

Genesis 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast and the creeping thing and the fowls of the air, for it repents.(Creator-God knew it would come to this; it's just that when it did, He could see the reality of man's actions at work and that man just was not learning;.1Corinthians 10:7).me that I have made them..(Creator-God makes up His plan as things go along)

Genesis 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.(why him? next verse).

Genesis 6:9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations and Noah walked with God.

Genesis 6:9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just.(did what was right for others and himself; he saw all that went before him {verses 5, 11} and decided not to be like that).man and perfect.(original 'whole'; that is, he did his best according to what he knew).in his generations and Noah walked with God.(was on the learning path of higher consciousness)

Genesis 6:10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth.(from them came the races).

Genesis 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before.('before' meaning 'in front of God', flagrant).God and the earth was filled with violence.(original for 'violence' also shows 'cruelty' and 'damaging ways'; violence is the outward expression of an inward low consciousness of despicableness, dislike and denigration).

Genesis 6:12 And God looked upon the earth and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth..(*)

Genesis 6:13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me for the earth is filled with violence through them and behold.(behold means 'take note').I will destroy them with.(original for 'with' in the Hebrew also allows 'from').the earth.

Genesis 6:14-16 Make you an ark of gopher wood. Rooms shall you make in the ark and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits.(450 feet or 137 meters), the breadth of it fifty cubits and the height of it thirty cubits. A window shalt thou make to the ark and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second and third stories shall you make it.

Genesis 6:17 And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven and every thing that is in the earth shall die.

Genesis 6:18 But with you will I establish my covenant and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you.

Genesis 6:19,20 And of every living thing of all flesh, two.(see also 7:2).of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto you, to keep them alive.

Genesis 6:21,22 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten and thou shalt gather it to thee and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. Thus did Noah according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Genesis 7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come you and all your house into the ark, for you have I seen righteous before me in this generation.

Genesis 7:2,3 Of every clean.(Leviticus 11:1-43).beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female and of beasts that are not clean.(Deuteronomy 14:1-22).by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female, to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

Genesis 7:4 For yet seven days and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth..(*)

Genesis 7:5 And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. 

Genesis 7:6 And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth..(appears to be that first the rivers overflowed from either a lot of rain and/or an earthquake)

Genesis 7:7-10 And Noah went in and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. Of clean beasts and of beasts that are not clean and of fowls and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth..(and it just got worse when the ground and sky really opened up)

Genesis 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven were opened. 

Genesis 7:12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

Genesis 7:13 In the selfsame day entered Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

Genesis 7:14-17 They and every beast after his kind and all the cattle after their kind and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. And they that went in; went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him. And the LORD shut him in. And the flood was forty days upon the earth and the waters increased and bare up the ark and it was lifted up above the earth.

Genesis 7:18-23 And the waters prevailed and were increased greatly upon the earth and the ark went upon the face of the waters. And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. Fifteen cubits upward.(from any visible land).did the waters prevail and the mountains were covered. And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl and of cattle and of beast and of every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth and every man. All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man and cattle and the creeping things and the fowl of the heaven and they were destroyed from the earth. And Noah only remained alive and they that were with him in the ark.

Genesis 7:24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Genesis 8:1-3 And God remembered Noah and every living thing and all the cattle that was with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth and the waters asswaged. The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped and the rain from heaven was restrained. And the waters returned from off the earth continually. And after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

Genesis 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

Genesis 8:5-12 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen. And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth. Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. Then he put forth his hand and took her and pulled her in unto him into the ark. And he stayed yet other seven days and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark and the dove came in to him in the evening and lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off. So Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. And he stayed yet other seven days and sent forth the dove, which returned not again unto him any more. 

Genesis 8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year.(of Noah's life:.Genesis 7:11), in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth.(this would have been 1666 years since man first formed on the Earth with the making of Adam or counting from the other way, B.C.E. 2334 and counting from there to the year 2020 A.D., would be a total of 6020 years, less 4 because of some screw up in dates {these guys obviously not to brilliant}, so 6016 years since Adam was made and here we all are approaching the long awaited thousand year reign of peace of Earth {Revelation 20:2-4} and the time after that, when the purpose for mankind is completed and all are now in what's called the next dimension, the dimension of God). And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked and behold, the face of the ground was dry.

Genesis 8:14-19 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried. And God spake unto Noah, saying, Go forth of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and your sons' wives with you. Bring forth with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh, both of fowl and of cattle and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth that they may breed abundantly in the earth and be fruitful and multiply upon the earth. And Noah went forth and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him. Every beast, every creeping thing and every fowl and whatsoever creeps upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

Genesis 8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD and took of every clean beast and of every clean fowl and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Genesis 8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth.(original for 'youth' is 'child', but man was born good); neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.(referring to the flood).

Genesis 8:22.While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest and cold and heat and summer and winter and day and night shall not cease.
