The Book of Jubilees

Chapter 4

4:1 “And in the third week of the second jubilee she gave birth to Cain, and in the fourth she gave birth to Abel, and in the fifth she gave birth to her daughter Awan.”
4:2 “And in the first (week) of the third jubilee Cain slew Abel, because (God) accepted an offering from his hands, but did not receive a fruit offering from the hands of Cain.”
4:3 “And he slew him on the field; and his blood cried aloud from earth to heaven lamenting that he had slain him, and God punished Cain, because he had slain Abel.”
4:4 “And he made him a refugee over the earth, on account of the blood of his brother, and he cursed him upon the earth.”
4:5 “And on this account it is written in the tablets of heaven: “Cursed be he who slays his neighbor in wickedness, and all who hear shall say, ‘So be it!’ and the man who sees it and does not announce it, cursed be he like the other.”
4:6 “And on this account we hearing come to announce before the Lord our God all the sins which take place in heaven and earth, and in light and in darkness, and everywhere.”
4:7 “And Adam and his wife mourned Abel four weeks of years; and in the fourth year of the fifth week he became joyful and knew his wife again, and she brought forth for him a son, and they called his name Seth; for he said: “The Lord has raised up for us a second seed on the earth in the place of Abel; for Cain slew him.”
4:8 “In the sixth week he begat his daughter Azura.”
4:9 “And Cain took Awan his sister to himself as wife, and she brought forth for him Enoch at the end of the fourth jubilee. And in the first year of the first week of the fifth jubilee houses were built on the earth, and Cain built a city, and called it by the name of his son Enoch.”
4:10 “And Adam knew Eve, his wife, and she brought forth yet nine sons.”
4:11 “And in the fifth week of this jubilee Seth took Azura his sister to himself as wife, and in the fourth (year) she brought forth for him Enos.”
4:12 “And he began first to call upon the name of the Lord on the earth.”
4:13 “And in the seventh jubilee, in the fifth week, Enos took Noem his sister to himself as wife, and she brought forth for him a son in the third year of the fifth week, and called his name Cainan.”
4:14 “And at the end of the eighth jubilee Cainan took to himself as wife Mualet his sister, and she bore for him a son in the ninth jubilee, in the first week, in the third year of this week, and he called his name Malalel.”
4:15 “And in the second week of the tenth jubilee Malalel took unto himself as wife Sina, the daughter of Barakhel, the daughter of the sister of his father, and she bore him a son in the third week, in the sixth year, and he called his name Jared; for in his days the angels of the Lord descended upon the earth, those that are called Watchmen, that they should teach the children of men to do judgment and right over the earth.”
4:16 “And in the eleventh jubilee Jared took to himself a wife, and her name was Baraka, a daughter of Rasujel, a daughter of the sister of his father, in the fourth week of this jubilee; and she bore for him a son in the fifth week, in the fourth year, of this jubilee, and he called his name Enoch.”
4:17 “He was the first one from among the children of men that are born on the earth to learn writing and knowledge and wisdom.”
4:18 “And he wrote the signs of heaven according to the order of their months in a book, that the sons of men might know the time of the year according to their separate months.”
4:19 “He was the first to write a testimony, and he testified to the children of men concerning the generations of the earth, and explained the weeks of the jubilees, and made known to them the days of the years, and arranged the months and explained the sabbaths of the years as we made them known to him.”
4:20 “And what was and what will be he saw in a vision of the night in a dream, and as it will happen to the children of men in their generations until the day of judgment; he saw and learned every thing and wrote it as a testimony and laid the testimony on the earth over all the children of men and for their generations.”
4:21 “And in the twelfth jubilee, in the seventh week thereof, he took to himself a wife, and her name was Edna, the daughter of Daniel, the daughter of the sister of his father; and in the sixth year in this week she bore him a son, and he called his name Methusaleh.”
4:22 “And then he was with the angels of God six years of this jubilee, and they showed him all things on earth and in heaven, the rule of the sun, and he wrote down all things.”
4:23 “And he testified to the Watchmen, those that sinned with the daughters of men; for they had commenced to mix with the daughters of the earth, so that they were defiled; and Enoch testified against them all.”
4:24 “And he was removed from the midst of the children of men, and we conducted him into the garden of Eden for greatness and for honor, and behold here he was engaged in writing down the judgment and the eternal condemnation and all the wickedness of the sons of the children of men.”
4:25 “And on this account (God) brought the deluge over the whole land of Eden; or there he was set as a sign and that he should testify over all the sons of the children of men, that he should declare all the deeds of the generations until the day of judgment.”
4:26 “And he offered a burnt offering on the west side of the sanctuary which was pleasing before the Lord on the hill of the south; for there are four places to the Lord on earth: the garden of Eden and the hill of the east in it, and this hill on which you are today, the hill of Sinai, and the hill of Zion, which will be sanctified in the new creation for a sanctification of the earth: through it the earth will be sanctified from all its sin and its uncleanness to the generation of eternity.”
4:27 “And in the fourteenth jubilee Methusaleh took unto himself as his wife Edna, the daughter of Ezrael, the daughter of the sister of his father, in the third week in the first year of this week, and he begat a son and called his name Lamech. And in the fifteenth jubilee, in the third week, Lamech took to himself a wife, and her name was Bilanos, the daughter of Barakel, the daughter of the sister of his father; and in this week she bore him a son, and he called his name Noah, saying: “This one will comfort me on account of all my work and on account of the earth which the Lord has cursed.”
4:28 “And at the end of the nineteenth jubilee, in the seventh week, in the sixth year thereof, Adam died, and all of his sons buried him in the land of the creation of Adam, and he was the first to be buried in the earth, and he lacked seventy years of one thousand years; for one thousand years are like one day in the testimony of heaven, and therefore it was written concerning the tree of knowledge: “On the day on which you shall eat thereof you shall die.”
4:29 “And for this reason he did not complete the years of this day; for in it he died.”
4:30 “At the end of this jubilee Cain was killed, after him, in the same year; and his house fell upon him, and he died in the midst of the house, and he was killed with his stones, for with a stone he had killed Abel, and with a stone he was killed by a judgment of righteousness.”
4:31 “On this account it is ordained in the tablets of heaven: “With the instrument with which a man kills his neighbor, he shall be killed; as he wounded him, shall thus they do to him.”
4:32 “And in the fifty fifth jubilee Noah took to himself a wife, and her name was Emzarah, the daughter of Rakel the daughter of his sister (sic) in the first year, in the fifth week; and in the third year thereof she bore him Shem, in the fifth year thereof she born him Ham, and in the first year in the sixth week she bore him Japhet.”
