According to the account in Genesis, Cain was the first child of Adam and Eve followed by Abel.

And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground” (Genesis 4:1-2).

After Cain slew his brother Abel, they had their third child Seth.  “And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew” (Genesis 4:25).

Adam and Eve had other children after these three above mentioned. “And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:” (Genesis 5:4).

May we be like Abel whose short life was a lasting testimony. “By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh” (Hebrews 11:4).
