Num. 18:12• 12All the best of the oil, and all the best of the new wine, and of the wheat, the firstfruits of them which they give to Jehovah, have I given thee. (Num. 18:12)
 Cain, laboring honestly outwardly where God had set him to do so, externally a worshipper of the true God, has not the conscience of sin; he brings as an offering the fruits which are signs of the curse, proof of the complete blinding of the heart, and hardening of the conscience of a sinful race driven out from God (Genesis 4 by J.N. Darby)
 The penalty of sin is death. Cain was a sinner, and, as such, death stood between him and Jehovah. But, in his offering, there was no recognition whatever of this fact. There was no presentation of a sacrificed life, to meet the claims of divine holiness, or to answer to his own true condition as a sinner. He treated Jehovah as though He were, altogether, such an one as himself, who could accept the sin-stained fruit of a cursed earth. (Genesis 4-5 by C.H. Mackintosh)
 Man would fain make God a receiver instead of a giver. (Genesis 4-5 by C.H. Mackintosh)

J. N. Darby Translation

And in process of timee it came to pass that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offeringf to Jehovah.
