And a mans hand was against his own brother in administering death, because of secret works seeking for power, & all the days of seth were nine hundred & twelve years & he died. <​/​> <​and Enos lived ninety years and begat Cainan​> & Eanos & the residue of the people of God, came out <​6/​> from the land which was called shulon, & dwelt in a land of Promise, which he called after his own Son, whom he had named <​7/​> Canaan <​Cainan​> lived seventy years, & begat Mahalaleel, & Canaan <​Cainan​> live after he begat Mahalaleel, eight hundred & forty years; & begat Sons & daughters. And all the days of Canaan <​Cainan​> were nine hundred & ten <​years​> & he died. <​/​> And Mahalaleel lived, sixty five years, & begat Jare <​8/​> Jared, & Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred & thirty years, & begat sons & daughters. & all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred & ninety five years; & he died. <​/​> And Jared lived one <​9/​> hundred <​&​> Sixty two years, & begat Enoch. & Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years & begat sons & daughters. & Jared taught Enoch in all the ways of God. & this is the genealogy of the sons of God <​Adam​> Which <​Who​> was the son of Adam <​God​> with whom God himself conversed. <​/​> And they were preachers of righteousness & <​10/​> spake, & prophecied, & called upon all men evry where to repent And faith was taught unto the children of men. And it came to pass that all the days of Jared, were nine hundred sixty <​&​> two years. & he died. <​/​> & Enoch lived Sixty & five years, & begat Mathusalah & it <​11/​> came to pass, that Enoch Journied in the land, among the people; & as he Journied, the spirit of God decended out of Heaven, & abode upon him; And he heard a voice from Heaven, saying, Enoch my Son, prophecy unto this people, & say unto them, repent, for thus saith the Lord, I am angery with this people, & my firce anger is kindeled against them; For their hearts have waxen <​waxed​> hard, & their ears are dull of hearing, & their eyes cannot see <​a​>far off; And for these many years generations, even since the day that I created them, have they gone astray, & have denied me, & have sought their own councils in the dark, And in their own abominations have they devised murder, & have not kept [p. 15]
