So Cain went out from the LORD’s presence and lived in the land of Nod east of Eden. (Genesis 4:16)
When you work the ground, it will no longer yield its crops for you. You will be a restless wanderer on the earth. (Genesis 4:12)
Do not be like Cain who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous. (1 John 3:12)
By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks even though he is dead. ( Hebrews 11:4)
Likewise, those today who fail to take advantage of God’s gift in Christ Jesus are condemned to an eternity of separation from God.
These men are blemishes at your love feasts, eating with you without the slightest qualm – shepherds who feed only themselves. They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn leaves, without fruit and uprooted – twice dead. They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever. (Jude 12-13)
