  • I remember having a discussion in someone in my church about the book of Genesis and re-reading about Cain and Abel made me scratch my head. When Cain murdered Abel, God put a mark on Cain as punishment.
  • What really confuses me, however, is when in Genesis 4:14 (NIV), it says "... Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.' "
  • However, at this point of the Bible, this is some years after Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden I presume.
  • Who exactly is Cain referring to when he says **_"whoever"_**? If Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel were the only known humans around at this time, who exactly would Cain be referring to?

In Genesis 4:14, who is Cain refering to when he says "whoever finds me will kill me."?
I remember having a discussion in someone in my church about the book of Genesis and re-reading about Cain and Abel made me scratch my head. When Cain murdered Abel, God put a mark on Cain as punishment.

What really confuses me, however, is when in Genesis 4:14 (NIV), it says "... Today you are driving me from the land, and I will be hidden from your presence; I will be a restless wanderer on the earth, and whoever finds me will kill me.' "

However, at this point of the Bible, this is some years after Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden I presume.

Who exactly is Cain referring to when he says **_"whoever"_**? If Adam, Eve, Cain, and Abel were the only known humans around at this time, who exactly would Cain be referring to?
