Description

Excerpt from The Imperial Bible-Dictionary, Historical, Biographical, Geographical and Doctrinal, Vol. 1: Including the Natural History, Antiquities, Manners, Customs, and Religious Rites and Ceremonies Mentioned in the Scriptures, and an Account of the Several Books of the Old and New Testaments

All that we know besides of Abel is, that he fell a victim to the ungodly spite and fiendish malice of his brother: 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. A controversy was raised, it would seem, on the principles which respectively animated them, and the different courses they pursued and, unable to prevail on grounds of reason, Cain resorted to the arm of violence, and wickedly laid the man of faith and righteousness in the dust - a melancholy sign, at the commencement of the world's history, of the deep-rooted enmity lurking in the natural man to the things of God, and of the treat ment which the children of faith might expect to receive from it! It was a fact pregnant with awful meaning for the future, that the first righteous man in Adam's family should also have become the first martyr to righteousness; yet it was not without hope, since Hea ven distinctly identified itself with his testimony, and espoused the cause of injured rectitude and worth. In such a case, the ascendency of evil could not be more than temporary.
