Text Commentary

1When they had been mourning four days the archangel 2Michael appeared and said to Seth, Man of God, never mourn for your dead more than six days, because on the seventh day is the sign of the resurrection and the rest of the age to come, for on the seventh day the Lord rested from all his works. 3Then Seth made the tablets. 1 Some MSS add an account of how these tablets survived the Flood, but no one could read them: Solomon, however, had the secret of the script revealed to him by the same angel who had ‘held the hand’ of Seth when he wrote them. The account concludes by stating that ‘on these stones was found what Enoch, the seventh from Adam, had prophesied before the Flood about the advent of Christ’; and then follows the well-known passage from 1 Enoch i. 9, quoted at Jude 14 and 15 . Still other MSS have further additions, including information about the materials out of which Adam's body was made and the statement that he was fashioned ‘in that place in which Jesus was born, that is to say in Bethlehem, which is in the middle of the world’.
