Tell Me the Story (Chinese) - 2014-15


Genesis 4:1-16

该隐和亚伯

1那人和他妻子夏娃同房,夏娃就怀孕,生了该隐 ,她说:“我靠耶和华得了一个男的。”2她又生了该隐的弟弟亚伯亚伯是牧羊的;该隐是耕地的。3过了一些日子,该隐拿地里的出产为供物献给耶和华;4亚伯也把他羊群中头生的和羊的脂肪献上。耶和华看中了亚伯和他的供物,5却看不中该隐和他的供物。该隐就非常生气,沉下脸来。6耶和华对该隐说:“你为什么生气呢?你为什么沉下脸来呢?7你若做得对,岂不仰起头来吗?你若做得不对,罪就伏在门前。它想要控制你,你却要制伏它。”

8该隐与他弟弟亚伯说话 。 二人正在田间时,该隐起来攻击他弟弟亚伯,把他杀了。9耶和华对该隐说:“你弟弟亚伯在哪里?”他说:“我不知道!我岂是看守我弟弟的吗?”10耶和华说:“你做了什么事呢?你弟弟血的声音从地里向我哀号。11现在你必从这地受诅咒,这地开了口,从你手里接受你弟弟的血。12你耕种土地,它不再给你效力;你必流离飘荡在地上。”13该隐对耶和华说:“我的惩罚太重,过于我所能承当的。14看哪,今日你赶我离开这块土地,不能见你的面;我必流离飘荡在地上,凡遇见我的必杀我。”15耶和华对他说:“既然如此 ,凡杀该隐的,必遭报七倍。”耶和华就给该隐立一个记号,免得人遇见他就杀他。16于是该隐离开了耶和华的面,去住在伊甸东边挪得之地。
