1:10 and to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, Jesus our deliverer from the coming wrath. 1 2:19 The Lord God formed 1 out of the ground every living animal of the field and every bird of the air. He brought them to the man to see what he would 2 name them, and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. 3:13 So the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this 1 you have done?” And the woman replied, “The serpent 2 tricked 3 me, and I ate.” 4:13 Then Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment 1 is too great to endure! 2 4:14 Look! You are driving me off the land 3 today, and I must hide from your presence. 4 I will be a homeless wanderer on the earth; whoever finds me will kill me.” 4:15 But the Lord said to him, “All right then, 5 if anyone kills Cain, Cain will be avenged seven times as much.” 6 Then the Lord put a special mark 7 on Cain so that no one who found him would strike him down. 8 4:16 So Cain went out from the presence of the Lord and lived in the land of Nod, 9 east of Eden.
