son of Adam and of Eve, was born A.M. 130, Genesis 5:3 ; Genesis 5:6 ; Genesis 5:10-11 . Seth, at the age of one hundred and five years, begat Enos, A.M. 235. He lived after this eight hundred and seven years, in all nine hundred and twelve years, and died A.M. 1042. Seth was the chief of "the children of God," as the Scripture calls them, Genesis 6:2 that is, those who before the flood preserved true religion and piety in the world, while the descendants of Cain gave themselves up to wickedness. The invention of letters and writing is by the rabbins ascribed to this patriarch.
