Abstract The argument of “Sacrifice” is important in Genesis 1-11. Gen 4,3-5 and 8,20-21 mention a gift made for YHWH. In both texts men act without a clear order of God. The offering of gifts does not express a positive progress of the human plan and of human acts. It is not clear if YHWh really accepted the offerings. The offerings of Abel, Cain or Noah are ambiguous human works. The reader of Gen 1-11 is a witness of God’s plan of creating life notwithstanding the dangerous jealousy of men and the end of life upon earth. He does not learn anything definitive about the gift men bring for YHWH.
