God's punishment for Cain's murder was banishment "Cain went out from the presence of the Lord . . ."
THE LOSS OF TWO SONS In the midst of tragedy, look for God's mercy. Genesis 4 1Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, "I have acquired a man fromthe Lord." 2Then she bore again, this time his brotherAbel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain wasa tiller of the ground. 3 In the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. 4Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. The Lord respected Abel and his offering, 5but He did not respect Cain and his offering. Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell. 6So the Lord said to Cain, "Why are you angry? Why has your countenance fallen? 7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. Its desire is for you, but you should rule over it."
8Now Cain talked with Abel his brother; and it cameto pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose upagainst Abel and killed him. 9Then the Lord said to Cain, "Where is Abel yourbrother?" He said, "I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?" 10He said, "What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries out to Me from the ground. 11So now you are cursed from the earth, which has openedits mouth to receive your brother's blood. 12When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on earth." 13Cain said: "My punishment is greater than I can bear! 4Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground; I shall be hidden from Your face; I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth, and it will happen that anyone who finds me will kill me." 15The Lord said to him, "Therefore, whoever kills Cain,vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold." The Lord set a mark on Cain, lest anyone finding him should kill him. 16Then Cain went out from the presence of the Lord anddwelt in the land of Nod on the east of Eden. 25And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, "For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed."
