Whats Up with Cain? page 5 Ernest Samuel Llime
I mean the son of Adam - the one who killed his brother Abel. Here's what the bible says:

 3 And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.
 4 And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
 5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.
 6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?
 7 If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him.
 8 And Cain talked with Abel his brother: and it came to pass, when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother, and slew him.
 9 And the LORD said unto Cain, Where is Abel thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
 10 And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's blood crieth unto me from the ground.
 11 And now art thou cursed from the earth, which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother's blood from thy hand;
 12 When thou tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto thee her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be in the earth.                           
Genesis: 4

So here is what I understand:
  • Cain offered GOD some kind of edible vegetation (e.g.: apples, bananas, wheat, rice.)
  • Abel offered GOD parts of an animal (a sheep or something - which he had killed.)
  • GOD did not like the vegetables but loved the smell of burning flesh.
  • GOD went into a detailed explanation of this so there should be no misunderstanding.
  • Cain killed Abel so GOD got very upset with Cain and cursed him.
