4:5 And Cain was wroth, and his countenance fell - Not so much out of grief as malice and rage. His sullen churlish countenance, and down - look, betrayed his passionate resentment.

1 John 3:12 states ‘’Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother's righteous.’’ This simply mean Cain’s heart was basically wicked and the problem with his sacrifice was just an expression of his wicked heart.
And you and I know that God looks at the heart, and makes no exception of person ( Deuteronomy 10 :17, Acts 10 :34-35).
God bless you.

Why no explanation as to why his offering was not pleasing? It would have more sense to elaborate on why. I am not seeking man's reasoning as to why, so don't bother hypothesizing.
