9/12 Daily Devotional

Chapel Devotional  

Genesis 4:8-15 

Cain said to his brother Abel, “Let us go out to the field.” And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him. 

 

Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” And the Lord said, “What have you done? Listen; your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground! And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother’s blood from your hand. When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth.” 

 

Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear! Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me.” Then the Lord said to him, “Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance.” And the Lord put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him. 

 

Caín, dijo a su hermano Abel: Vamos afuera. Y cuando estaban en el campo, se lanzó Caín contra su hermano Abel y lo mató 

 

Yahveh dijo a Caín: ¿Dónde está tu hermano Abel? ContestóNo . ¿Soy yo acaso el guarda de mi hermano? Replicó Yahveh: ¿Qué has hecho? Se oye la sangre de tu hermano clamar a  desde el suelo. Pues bien: maldito seas, lejos de este suelo que abrió su boca para recibir de tu mano la sangre de tu hermano. Aunque labres el suelo, no te dará más su frutoVagabundo y errante serás en la tierra. 

 

Entonces dijo Caín a Yahveh: Mi culpa es demasiado grande para soportarla. Es decir que hoy me echas de este suelo y he de esconderme de tu presenciaconvertido en vagabundo errante por la tierra, y cualquiera que me encuentre me matará. Respondióle Yahveh: Al contrarioquienquiera que matare a Caín, lo pagará siete veces. Y Yahveh puso una señal a Caín para que nadie que le encontrase le atacara. 
 

가인이 그 아우 아벨에게 고하니라 그 후 그들이 들에 있을때에 가인이 그 아우 아벨을 쳐 죽이니라  

 

여호와께서 가인에게 이르시되 네 아우 아벨이 어디 있느냐그가 가로되 `내가 알지 못하나이다 내가 내 아우를 지키는 자이니까?' 가라사대 네가 무엇을 하였느냐? 네 아우의 핏소리가 땅에서부터 내게 호소하느니라 땅이 그 입을 벌려 네 손에서부터 네 아우의 피를 받았은즉 네가 땅에서 저주를 받으리니 네가 밭 갈아도 땅이 다시는 그 효력을 네게 주지 아니할 것이요 너는 땅에서 피하며 유리하는 자가 되리라  

 

가인이 여호와께 고하되 `내 죄벌이 너무 중하여 견딜 수 없나이다 주께서 오늘 이 지면에서 나를 쫓아 내시온즉 내가 주의 낯을 뵈옵지 못하리니 내가 땅에서 피하며 유리하는 자가 될지라 무릇 나를 만나는 자가 나를 죽이겠나이다여호와께서 그에게 이르시되 그렇지 않다 가인을 죽이는 자는 벌을 칠배나 받으리라 하시고 가인에게 표를 주사 만나는 누구에게든지 죽임을 면케 하시니라 

 

God, the refuge of wanderers and exiles, 
     the mother and father of the homeless, 
     you weep with those who are uprooted from their homeland, 
     and you suffer with those who exist without shelter and security. 
Grant that your faithful love may reach out, 
     and that your healing mercy rise like the dawn 
     on all who are oppressed. 
We ask this through Jesus, your Son, 
     who know hardship and died outside the city wall.  

Amen.
