Easy. Connect the black, red, and white wires to the corresponding terminals on your stove's wiring terminal block.

The green connects to the frame of the appliance.

IF there is a bonding jumper that connects the white wire to the frame of the appliance, remove it.

Care to take a picture of your stove's wiring terminal block and upload it here?
