Cain and Lilith darted into the woods. Abel knew they hadn’t seen him. Back at the family gathering area, he had noticed Cain seeking Lilith. Abel knew their little brothers might end up being disappointed, so he had taken the shortcut through the trees to the downriver location the boys had mentioned, hoping to avert their distress when they couldn’t find Cain.
When he had spotted Cain and Lilith embracing in the grass, he had been surprised and puzzled about what to do. Should he speak? Should he circle wide around them? Now that Abel had seen to what purpose Cain had pursued Lilith, it confused and troubled him.
Heading to intercept the little brothers, he would spend the day with them in consolation for the fact that they would not find Cain. These particular younger brothers were partial to their eldest brother, but Abel would make sure their day was fun.
Was Cain and Lilith’s behavior appropriate? Abel needed to consider and pray about that. Did Yahweh intend to give them wives? Was this the way He was going to do it? Abel wasn’t certain, but he would keep their secret unless it became obvious that it needed to be told.
