4:11 And now [art] thou cursed [H779] from the earth [H127] , which hath opened [H6475] her mouth [H6310] to receive [H3947] thy brother's [H251] blood [H1818] from thy hand [H3027] ;

4:12 When [H3588] thou tillest [H5647] the ground [H127] , it shall not henceforth [H3254] yield [H5414] unto thee her strength [H3581] ; a fugitive [H5128] and a vagabond [H5110] shalt thou be in the earth [H776] .
