S. M. Hutchens on the Sixth Commandment
Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the soil. In the course of time Cain brought to the Lord an offering of the fruit of the ground, and Abel brought of the firstlings of his flock and of their fat portions. And the Lord accepted Abel and his offering, but Cain’s he did not accept. So Cain was very angry, and his face and bearing were altered. The Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? What is this change in you? If you do well, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.”
Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let us go into the field.” . . .
