1 A Poetic Rephrasing of Psalm 23 Note Ps 23:6 DocTrinsograce Wed 10/7/15, 3:39pm 242607
  The 23 Psalme

The God of love my shepherd is,
And He that doth me feed:
While He is mine, and I am His,
What can I want or need?
He leads me to the tender grasse,
Where I both feed and rest;
Then to the streams that gently passe:
In both I have the best.
Or if I stray, He doth convert
And bring my minde in frame:
And all this not for my desert,1
But for His holy name.
Yea, in deaths shadie black abode
Well may I walk, not fear:
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
To guide, Thy staff to bear.
Nay, Thou dost make me sit and dine,
Evín in my enemies sight:
My head with oyl, my cup with wine
Runnes over day and night.
Surely thy sweet and wondrous love
Shall measure all my dayes;
And as it never shall remove,
So neither shall my praise.

--George Herbert (1633)
2 Cain feared who would kill him? Note Gen 4:13 justme Wed 10/7/15, 7:33am 242606
  Doc. very good. It stans to reason that we have no clear understanding of the time frame in years, that all this took place. These type of issues that lie behind the clear out front details that I think for a better term are "digging for gold nuggets". This really makes "Reading the Bible for all it's worth" as the Bible Answer man says. Thanks for making this a very interesting dialogue.

3 Cain feared who would kill him? Note Gen 4:13 DocTrinsograce Tue 10/6/15, 3:04pm 242605
  Hi, Justme...

Given that Cain says "...whoever finds me will kill me." (Genesis 4:14b) and God's reply "Therefore whoever kills Cain..." (v15a) imply that the community of men was either growing or expected to grow.

John Calvin comments with: "Cain, however, in this place, not only considers himself as deprived of Godís protection, but also supposes all creatures to be divinely armed to take vengeance of his impious murder. This is the reason why he so greatly fears for his life from any one who may meet him; for as man is a social animal, and all naturally desire mutual intercourse, this is certainly to be regarded as a portentous fact, that the meeting with any man was formidable to the murderer."

In Him, Doc
4 Cain feared who would kill him? Note Gen 4:13 justme Tue 10/6/15, 9:20am 242604
  Doc; would it stand to reason that when Cain married his sister were there not other brothers that would eventually be a threat?

5 Cain feared who would kill him? Answer Gen 4:13 DocTrinsograce Mon 10/5/15, 2:33pm 242603
  Hi, Jem...

Welcome to the forum!

Of whom was Cain afraid? God Himself. No doubt the warning before Cain's sin must have been a difficult thing to hear (Genesis 4:6-7). Compound that with the sin now on Cain's conscience. Furthermore, God had cursed Cain (vv11-12). With all of that, can we not well imagine that he was frightened (though evidently unrepentant)? Certainly someone who committed so horrid a sin as fratricide would expect to be despised in the growing community of men.

Nonetheless, notice that Cain does not cry out for pardon. Notice that there is no sign of repentance in his words (vv13-14). Nor is there any evidence of a penitent in his subsequent behavior (vv16-17).

Instead, Cain exhibits what Paul later calls a "sorrow of the world [which] produces death (2 Corinthians 7:10).

In Him, Doc
