But the Lord said to him, “All right then, if anyone kills Cain, Cain will be avenged seven times as much.” Then the Lord put a special mark on Cain so that no one who found him would strike him down.—Gen 4:15 NET
We speak of the mark of Cain as if it was the mark of a curse. In reality it was the mark of God’s mercy, a defence against his enemies. — D. J. Burrell.
