Genesis 4

1:1 God (a-4) Heb. Elohim, the plural of Eloah, 'the Supreme'. It is Deity in the absolute sense. Elohim will, in the text, appear only in the name of Jehovah Elohim; moreover, when Elohim following immediately on Jehovah has a grammatical adjunct, its place will be taken by the English word 'God'. see Gen. 9.26 and 24.7. Other Hebrew divine names translated as 'God' will be indicated as follows. Eloah +God; El, (meaning 'The Mighty,' see Gen. 14.18), *God. For the meaning of Jehovah, (Heb. Yahveh, or Yehveh), the ever-existing One, see Ex. 3.14,15; Isa. 40.28. For Jah, the existing One objectively, see Ex. 15.2; Ps. 68.4. The name seems to express absolute rather than continuous existence. For Adonai (a name of God, not merely a title), translated 'Lord', see Ezek. 2.4.4:1 Cain, (a-12) Acquisition. 4:2 Abel. (b-7) Heb. Hebel, a breath (Job 7.16); or 'vanity' (Ps.144.4). shepherd, (c-12) Lit. 'herdsman of small cattle.' husbandman. (d-17) Lit. 'worked the ground.' 4:3 time (e-5) Lit. 'at the end of days.' offering (f-20) Lit. 'gift,' minchah. so vers. 4,5; elsewhere translated 'oblation.' See Lev. 2.1. 4:7 confidence]? (g-12) See Job 11.15. Or possibly, 'shalt thou not be accepted.' But I should question 'accepted,' the rather as nasa is used for it here. Lit. 'is there not a lifting up?' sin (h-19) Or 'a sin-offering,' Heb. chattath the word having both senses. see Note b Lev. 5.1. Also 'punishment.' see Note Zech. 14.19. 4:13 borne. (i-13) Or 'Mine iniquity (Heb.gahvon) is too great to be forgiven.' See Note Lam. 4.6. 4:15 smite (k-27) Or 'strike.' 4:16 Nod, (l-16) Flight, wandering. see ver. 12, where it is translated 'fugitive.' 4:22 of (a-14) Or 'the instructor of every worker in.' brass (b-15) Or 'bronze.' so always. Naamah. (c-24) Charming. 4:23 bruise. (d-35) Or 'to my wounding,' 'to my bruising.' 4:25 Seth. (e-16) Appointed. 4:26 Enosh. (f-16) Man, as weak, mortal, Ps. 8.4; 103.15. on (g-22) Or 'to call themselves by,' but see chs. 12.8; 13.4; 21.33; 26.25.
