“Adam, Sheth, Enosh,”
King James Version (KJV)
1:1 Sheth - Adam begat Sheth: and so in the followingparticulars. For brevity sake he only mentions their names; but therest is easily understood out of the former books. This appears as thepeculiar glory of the Jewish nation, that they alone were able to tracetheir pedigree from the first man that God created, which no other nationpretended to, but abused themselves and their posterity with fabulousaccounts of their originals: the people of Thessaly fancying that theysprang from stones, the Athenians, that they grew out of the earth.
