Genesis 4:8

Καὶ εἶπεν Κάιν πρὸς Ἅβελ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ· Διέλθωμεν εἰς τὸ πεδίον. καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ εἶναι αὐτοὺς ἐν τῷ πεδίῳ καὶ ἀνέστη Κάιν ἐπὶ Ἅβελ τὸν ἀδελφὸν αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπέκτεινεν αὐτόν.

And Kain said to Habel his brother, “Let us go to the field.” And it came to pass that when they were in the field Kain then rose up against Habel his brother, and killed him.

ויאמר קין אל־הבל אחיו ויהי בהיותם בשׂדה ויקם קין אל־הבל אחיו ויהרגהו׃

*   πεδίῳ καὶ ἀνέστη (Swete; Cambridge; Rahfls) | πεδίῳ ἀνέστη (Holmes; Lagarde; Tischendorf-Nestle)
