Isahluko 4

1 U-Adamu wamazi umkakhe u-Eva; wakhulelwa, wazala uKayini; wathi: “Ngitholile indoda kuJehova.”
2 Waphinda wazala u-Abela umfowabo. U-Abela waba ngumalusi, uKayini waba ngumlimi.
3 Kwathi emva kwezinsuku ezithile uKayini waletha kuJehova umnikelo wezithelo zomhlabathi.
4 Naye u-Abela waletha umnikelo kuwo amazibulo ezimvu zakhe ezinonileyo. UJehova wanaka u-Abela nomnikelo wakhe.
5 Kepha uKayini nomnikelo wakhe akawunakanga. Wayesethukuthela kakhulu uKayini, ubuso bakhe banyukumala.
6 UJehova wathi kuKayini: “Uthukuthelelani na? Ubuso bakho bunyukumeleleni na?
7 Angithi uma wenza kahle, uyamukeleka na? Uma ungenzi kahle, isono sihlezi ngasemnyango; ukunxanela kwaso kukuwe, kepha wena umelwe ukusibusa.”
8 UKayini wakhuluma ku-Abela umfowabo, wathi: “Masiye endle.” Kwathi besendle, uKayini wasukela umfowabo u-Abela, wambulala.
9 Wayesethi uJehova kuKayini: “Uphi umfowenu u-Abela na?” Wathi: “Angazi; ngingumlindi womfowethu na?”
10 Khona wathi: “Wenzeni na? Izwi legazi lomfowenu liyakhala kimi lisemhlabathini.
11 Usuqalekisiwe emhlabathini ovulile umlomo wawo ukwamukela igazi lomfowenu esandleni sakho.
12 Uma ulima umhlabathi, awusayikukunika isithelo sawo; wena uyakuba ngumhambuma nozulane emhlabeni.”
13 Khona wathi uKayini kuJehova: “Isono sami sikhulu kunokuba ngisithwale.
14 Bheka, uyangixosha namuhla ebusweni bomhlaba, ngicashe ebusweni bakho; ngiyakuba ngumhambuma nozulane emhlabeni, ongifumanayo angibulale.”
15 Kepha uJehova wathi kuye: “Ngalokho obulala uKayini uyakuphindiselwa kasikhombisa.” UJehova wabeka uphawu kuKayini, funa omfumanayo ambulale.
16 Wayesesuka uKayini ebusweni bukaJehova, wahlala ezweni laseNodi ngasempumalanga kwase-Edene.
17 UKayini wamazi umkakhe; wakhulelwa, wazala u-Enoke. Wakha umuzi, wawuqamba igama lokuthi u-Enoke ngegama lendodana yakhe.
18 U-Enoke wazala u-Irade; u-Irade wazala uMehujayele; uMehujayele wazala uMetushayele; uMetushayele wazala uLameka.
19 ULameka wazithathela abafazi ababili; igama lomunye lalingu-Ada, igama lomunye lalinguSila.
20 U-Ada wazala uJabale; yena waba nguyise wabahlala ematendeni, befuya izinkomo.
21 Igama lomfowabo lalinguJubale; yena waba nguyise wabo bonke ababetha ihabhu nomtshingo.
22 USila wazala uThubali Kayini; wayengumkhandi wazo zonke izinto zethusi nezensimbi ezisikayo. Udadewabo kaThubali Kayini wayenguNahama.
23 ULameka wathi kubo abafazi bakhe: “Ada noSila, yizwani izwi lami; nina bafazi bakaLameka, lalelani ukusho kwami: Bhekani, ngibulala umuntu ngenxeba engilitholayo, nensizwa ngomvimbo engiwuzwiswayo.
24 Yebo, uKayini uyakuphindiselwa kasikhombisa, kepha uLameka kamashumi ayisikhombisa, aphindwe kasikhombisa.”
25 U-Adamu wabuye wamazi umkakhe; wazala indodana, wamqamba igama lokuthi uSeti, ethi: “UNkulunkulu ungibekele enye inzalo esikhundleni sika-Abela, njengokuba uKayini umbulele.”
26 Naye uSeti wazala indodana, wayiqamba igama layo ngokuthi u-Enoshe. Ngaleso sikhathi abantu baqala ukukhuleka egameni likaJehova.
