At the same time, the pericope of verses 1–16 makes one neat unit with its own plot, starting with the mention of Cain’s rise “with Yahweh” (v. 1) and ending with his downfall “out of Yahweh’s presence” (v. 16). The text itself consists of an alternation of narrative and dialogue: 1–5, introduction; 6–7, first dialogue; 8, outrage; 9–15a, second dialogue; 15b–16, closing.

The apodosis gives the juridical result that would take place if the boundaries mentioned in the participial protasis are not heeded. The juridical character of v. 15a is confirmed by the seal with an official sign (and recognizable as such). In this way v. 15 forms a fitting conclusion to the whole section of vv.
