AND Cain said unto the LORD : My sin is too great for me to gain pardon thereof. <ref>The Jerusalem Targum softens the hopelessness of this exclamation. &quot; My sins are greater than can be borne. Nevertheless there is power before Thee to absolve and forgive me.&quot; (Etheridge's translation, I. 172.) </ref> Behold, Thou hast driven me out this day from the face of the earth, and from Thy face shall I be hid, and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the earth.  Every one therefore that findeth me shall slay me. And the LORD said unto him : It shall not be so : but whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.  And the LORD set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.  And Cain went out from the presence of the LORD, and dwelt a vagabond in the land on the East of Eden.
