Abstract This brief paper aims to reconsider Cain's sinful deed in Genesis 4 in the light of what may be termed Yahweh's divine patronage, as expressed throughout the Old Testament's narrative as a whole. From this point of view, Cain's first sin was not the envy towards Abel or the murder of his brother but rather the implicit disobedience of Yahweh's word and his lack of humility for accepting divine will.
