SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:1 Â¶ Y conoció Adán a su mujer Eva, la cual concibió y dio a luz a Caín, y dijo: He ganado varón por el SEÑOR.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 4:1 Verse 1. I have gotten a man from the Lord.] Cain, yq , signifies acquisition; hence Eve says tnq kanithi, I have gotten or acquired a man, hwhy ta eth Yehovah, the Lord. It is extremely difficult to ascertain the sense in which Eve used these words, which have been as variously translated as understood. Most expositors think that Eve imagined Cain to be the promised seed that should bruise the head of the serpent. This exposition really seems too refined for that period. It is very likely that she meant no more than to acknowledge that it was through God's peculiar blessing that she was enabled to conceive and bring forth a son, and that she had now a well-grounded hope that the race of man should be continued on the earth. Unless she had been under Divine inspiration she could not have called her son (even supposing him to be the promised seed) Jehovah; and that she was not under such an influence her mistake sufficiently proves, for Cain, so far from being the Messiah, was of the wicked one; 1 John iii. 12. We may therefore suppose that hwyh ta eth Yehovah, THE LORD, is an elliptical form of expression for hwhy tam meeth Yehovah, FROM THE LORD, or through the Divine blessing.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-7 - When Cain was born, Eve said, I have gotten a man from the Lord Perhaps she thought that this was the promised seed. If so, she wa wofully disappointed. Abel signifies vanity: when she thought she ha the promised seed in Cain, whose name signifies possession, she was s taken up with him that another son was as vanity to her. Observe, eac son had a calling. It is the will of God for every one to have something to do in this world. Parents ought to bring up their children to work. Give them a Bible and a calling, said good Mr. Dod, and God be with them. We may believe that God commanded Adam, after the fall, to shed the blood of innocent animals, and after their death to burn par or the whole of their bodies by fire. Thus that punishment whic sinners deserve, even the death of the body, and the wrath of God, of which fire is a well-known emblem, and also the sufferings of Christ were prefigured. Observe that the religious worship of God is no ne invention. It was from the beginning; it is the good old way, Jer 6:16 The offerings of Cain and Abel were different. Cain showed a proud unbelieving heart. Therefore he and his offering were rejected. Abe came as a sinner, and according to God's appointment, by his sacrific expressing humility, sincerity, and believing obedience. Thus, seeking the benefit of the new covenant of mercy, through the promised Seed his sacrifice had a token that God accepted it. Abel offered in faith and Cain did not, Heb 11:4. In all ages there have been two sorts of worshippers, such as Cain and Abel; namely, proud, hardened despiser of the gospel method of salvation, who attempt to please God in ways of their own devising; and humble believers, who draw near to him in the way he has revealed. Cain indulged malignant anger against Abel. He harboured an evil spirit of discontent and rebellion against God. God notices all our sinful passions and discontents. There is not an angry envious, or fretful look, that escapes his observing eye. The Lor reasoned with this rebellious man; if he came in the right way, he should be accepted. Some understand this as an intimation of mercy. "I thou doest not well, sin, that is, the sin-offering, lies at the door and thou mayest take the benefit of it." The same word signifies sin and a sacrifice for sin. "Though thou hast not done well, yet do no despair; the remedy is at hand." Christ, the great sin-offering, is said to stand at the door, Re 3:20. And those well deserve to perish in their sins, that will not go to the door to ask for the benefit of thi sin-offering. God's acceptance of Abel's offering did not change the birthright, and make it his; why then should Cain be so angry? Sinfu heats and disquiets vanish before a strict and fair inquiry into the cause.
