Outline of Genesis 4


Below is a list of the pages on Priceless Eternity which cover Genesis 4. To view a larger listing of pages on other parts of Scripture go to the Scripture Index.

Genesis 4
Summary of Genesis 4 Genesis 4 is unique because it contains one of the only descriptions of the pre-flood world. Man was cursed and cast out of the garden— Genesis 4 is the first glimpse of life outside that paradise...

Genesis 4
The Cave Men of Genesis Those who hold to an evolutionary view of history have done an amazing job promoting the absurd idea of the "cave man". They enjoy imagining pre-human (and for the most part unintelligent) creatures who spoke with grunts— whose greatest accomplishment was the invention of fire...

Genesis 4:1-2
Cain and Abel: Two Routes There is more to Cain and Abel than a climatic murder. The account of these two brothers also provides teaching on offerings, anger, discipline, sin, and repentance. But in addition to this, the account of Cain and Abel provides the first glimpse of humanity after the fall. A glimpse which...

Genesis 4:3-5
Cain and Abel: An Offering After the the birth of Cain and Abel, an unrecorded part of history passed. During this time, Cain and Abel grew from infancy to maturity— Eve likely gave birth to more children. But the sinfulness of humanity did not disappear during this time...

Genesis 4:5-7
Cain and Abel: Anger Improper anger directed at another human is the foundation of murder. Jesus said, everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever says to his brother, 'You good-for-nothing,' shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever says...

Genesis 4:8
Cain and Abel: Murder After God rejected Cain's offering and warned him of the dangers of sin, Cain grew angry and his countenance fell. Once God had finished speaking to Cain...

Genesis 4:9
Cain and Abel: Sarcastic Reply Cain had failed to quench his anger, which led him to murder his brother... Prior to the murder, Cain deserved death (for All Men Are Guilty). Cain was kept alive only because of the mercy of God. He rejected God. He did not seek to give his best offering...

Genesis 4:10-12
Cain and Abel: Cursed God questioned Cain concerning the location of Abel. When Cain failed to provide an honest answer, God asserted his omniscience (all-knowingness). He demonstrated that He knew exactly what Cain had done. God replies to Cain's lie...

Genesis 4:13-16
Cain and Abel: Mark of Mercy Cain received mercy after mercy. God was patient with Cain, but Cain refused to repent. Thus God cursed Cain (which could be seen as yet another act of mercy, for God would have been perfectly just to simply end Cain's life). But after the curse, Cain still refused to repent— he did not even...

Genesis 4:17
Who Was Cain's Wife? Who was Cain's wife? It is a question often posed to Christians, usually in an attempt to stump them. But the question has a very simple answer... yet some people attempt to avoid the easy answer because it seems... well, too obvious. Some people propose that Adam and Eve were...

Genesis 4:17-18
The City of Enoch The first city mentioned in Scripture was constructed by an unrepentant murderer. Cain named the city after his son, Enoch (note that this is not the Enoch in Genesis 5:24 who walked with God...

Genesis 4:19
What Does the Bible Say About Polygamy? (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4) In entering into marriage with two women, Lamech was setting himself against God. At creation, God had laid out that marriage was to be between one man and one woman. Any other combination is a perversion of marriage...

Genesis 4:20
The Father of Those Who Dwell in Tents and Have Livestock - Jabal Jabal was not the first to merely possess livestock. Earlier in Genesis 4, Scripture states that Abel was a keeper of flocks (Genesis 4:2). Clearly, men as early as Abel made a living by keeping certain animals...

Genesis 4:21
The Father of Musical Instruments - Jubal What would life be like without music? Life without digital music is hard enough to imagine, but what would life be like if you had never heard a single musical instrument? Throughout history, and especially in the past hundred years...

Genesis 4:22
The Forger of All Implements of Bronze and Iron - Tubal-cain Not only was Tubal-cain the forger of all implements of bronze, but he was also the forger of all implements of iron— an amazing feat. It also seems likely that he was a major contributer to the invention of forgery— but if he was not the inventor, he greatly advanced...

Genesis 4:23-24
Lamech's Song After a few verses describing the accomplishment's of Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal-cain, the subject refocuses on Lamech. Immediately, the reader should be reminded of Lamech's sinful polygamous relationship...

Genesis 4:25
When Was Seth Born? There is some question as to when the birth of Seth took place. Is the account of Seth's birth in chronological order with the previous passage (Genesis 4:17-24)? Was Seth born after Lamech's three famous sons (Jabal, Jubal, and Tubal-cain)? Or did Seth's birth occur...

Genesis 4:25
The Birth of Seth This is the last verse in Scripture which directly quotes the mother of all the living (Genesis 3:20). Eve's words show her recognition of God's sovereignty. There are many statements which Eve could have made— she could have boasted and...

Genesis 4:26
Righteous Men of the Pre-Flood World To fully realize the significance of Genesis 4:26, the history prior to it must be taken into consideration. In the garden, man sinned and the world plunged into chaos. The fall brought a curse upon mankind. Rather than looking upon such tragic events and ceasing from sin, men multiplied their transgressions. Hypocrisy and...
