Persian: As a result of this sin

    Here, in particular, I'm looking for a word for sin which I heard on a DVD recently. It sounded like “abal” or possibly “aval”: اَبَل or عَوَل or something like that.

    The sentence in English: “As a result of this sin they were punished by God”. How might one say this whole sentence in Persian, by the way?

    What I heard sounded like this “در نتیجۀ این اَبَل/عَوَل از دست خدا تنبیه شدند.”

    I wonder what I might be. It certainly wasn't گناه.

    Best wishes, and many thanks,

    Exactly (عمل﴿ :) :thumbsup:

    As a result of doing so = به خاطر این عمل خدا تنبیه‌شان كرد

    Thank you so much, I really think that must be it.
