After Adam and Eve left the garden of Eden, they had many children.
Vbe Adam vbe Ivi ghi kpa hin ogba ọghe Idẹni rre nẹ, iran na do biẹlẹ emọ nibun.
Their first son, Cain, became a farmer, and their second son, Abel, became a shepherd.
Ovbi iran ne ọdiọn ighẹ e Keni na gha re ọgbugbo vbene ovbi iran nukpogieva ighẹ Ebẹl na gha re ọsuohuan.
One day Cain and Abel made offerings to Jehovah.
Ẹdẹ ọkpa ghi rre, e Keni vbe Ebẹl na do ru izọese gie Jehova.
Do you know what an offering is?
Uwẹ rẹn emwi nọ re izọese ra?
It is a special kind of gift.
Ọ keghi re ẹse ne kpataki.
Jehovah was happy with Abel’s offering, but he was not happy with Cain’s.
E Jehova keghi miẹn izọese ọghe Ebẹl yi, sokpan ọ ma miẹn ọghe Keni yi.
That made Cain very angry.
Ohu na do gha mu e Keni.
Jehovah warned Cain that his anger could make him do something bad.
E Jehova keghi ya obọ sekhae nẹ wẹẹ ohu dan nọ muẹn gha yae ru emwi nọ wegbe.
But Cain did not listen.
Sokpan e Keni ma họn.
Instead, Cain said to Abel:
Nọghayayerriọ, e Keni na tama Ebẹl wẹẹ:
‘Come over to the field with me.’
‘Do lele mwẹ gha rrie ugbo.’
While they were alone in the field, Cain attacked his brother and killed him.
Vbe iran eveva ghi sẹ ugbo, e Keni na gbe ovbi iyẹe rua.
What would Jehovah do about this?
Vbe uwẹ a yayi wẹẹ e Jehova khian ru e Keni hẹ?
Jehovah punished Cain by sending him far away from his family.
E Jehova keghi rri e Keni oya, ọ na khu ẹre gha rrie ẹvbo nọ rree.
Cain would never be allowed to come back.
E Keni i khian ghi sẹtin werriegbe bu ẹgbẹe ọre gha dee.
Is there a lesson here for us?
De emwi ne ima miẹn ruẹ vbe ọna?
We might start to feel angry if things don’t go the way we think they should.
Ohu sẹtin gha mu ima deghẹ emwi eso ma na sunu vbene ima te roro ẹre yi.
If we feel anger growing inside of us—or if others warn us because they notice our anger—we should quickly adjust and control our emotions before they control us.
Adeghẹ ima na bẹghe ẹre wẹẹ ohu mu ima—ra emwa ọvbehe na gi ima rẹn wẹẹ ọmwa ne ohu mu ẹre ima khin—ọ khẹke ne ima rherhe winna yan rẹn na ghẹ do miẹn wẹẹ ọviẹn ọghe ohu ẹre ima ghi khin.
Because Abel loved Jehovah and did what was right, Jehovah will always remember him.
Rhunmwuda ne Ebẹl na hoẹmwẹ e Jehova kevbe ne ọ na gha ru emwi esi, e Jehova i khian mianmiaẹn.
God will bring Abel back to life when He makes the earth a paradise.
Osanobua gha huẹn ọnrẹn kpaegbe vbe ẹghẹ ne ọ khian ya ye uhunmwu otagbọn na khian e paradais.
“First make your peace with your brother, and then come back and offer your gift.”—Matthew 5:24
“Wẹ vbe ọtuẹn ka ya dọlọ nẹ, u kegha dee do yo imuohan ruẹn gie Osanobua.”—Matiu 5:24
Who were Adam and Eve’s first two children?
Vba tie ovbi Adam vbe Ivi nokaro kevbe nukpogieva?
Why did Cain kill his brother?
Vbọsiẹ ne Keni na gbe ọtiọnrẹn rua?
