Text Commentary

1And behold, twelve angels came and two powers, and they stood on Eve's right and on her left. And Michael was standing on the right. 2And he stroked her on the face as far down as her breast; and he said to Eve, You are blessed, Eve, for Adam's sake. In answer to his fervent prayers and intercessions 1 Lit. ‘Since his prayers and intercessions are great’. I have been sent to you to give you our help. Get up now and prepare to give birth. 3And she bore a son; and he was beautiful. 2 Or ‘shining’ (lucidus). And at once the babe got up and ran and brought a blade of grass in his hands and gave it to his mother. And his name was called Cain. 3 a blade of grass … Cain: a Hebrew word-play would seem to be involved here (qaneh … Qayyin), parallel to, but different from, that at Gen. iv. 1 .
