Seth, 3rd son of Adam & Eve, was born after Cain murdered Abel. So the family line is continued through him. His name denoted this being derived from the root meaning "appointed-given" instead of his brother(s), as Eve herself explains.


Set var Adams och Evas tredje son. Han föddes efter det att Kain dödat Abel. Set omnämns i Första Mosebok kap. 4:25-26 och 5:3.


Su nombre significa sustisución. Fue el hijo que Dios le dio a Adán y Eva después de la muerte de su hijo menor a manos de Caín. (Gén. 4:8). (c. 3874-2962 a. de J.C.).


Adán tenía 130 años cuando nació su hijo, al que llamó Set, y que era parecido a él en todo. Después de esto, Adán vivió 800 años más, y tuvo otros hijos e hijas; así que vivió 930 años en total.

Seth was the third son of Adam and Eve brother of Cain and Abel, who were the only other of their children mentioned by name. According to Genesis 4:25, Seth was born after the slaying of Abel by Cain, and Eve believed God had appointed him as a replacement for Abel.


Age 972 yrs.


Seth (Hebrew: שֵׁתֿ, Standard Šet, Tiberian Šēṯ; Arabic: شيث‎ Sheeth; placed; appointed"), in Judaism, Christianity and Islam, was the third son of Adam and Eve and brother of Cain and Abel, who were the only other of their children mentioned by name in the Tanakh (Old Testament). According to Genesis 4:25, Seth was born after Abel's murder, and Eve believed God had appointed him as a replacement for Abel.

According to Genesis, Seth was born when Adam was 130 years old[1] "a son in his likeness and image."[1] The genealogy is repeated at 1 Chronicles 1:1–3. Genesis 5:4–5 states that Adam fathered "sons and daughters" before his death, aged 930 years. According to the Bible, Seth lived to the age of 912.[2] Jewish tradition

Seth figures in The Life of Adam and Eve, also known, in its Greek version, as the Apocalypse of Moses, a Jewish pseudepigraphical group of writings. It recounts the lives of Adam and Eve from after their expulsion from the Garden of Eden to their deaths. The surviving versions were composed from the early 3rd to the 5th century,[3]:252 the literary units in the work are considered to be older and predominantly of Jewish origin.[4] There is wide agreement that the original was composed in a Semitic language[3]:251 in the 1st century AD/CE.[3]:252 In the Greek versions Seth and Eve travel to the doors of the Garden to beg for some oil of the tree of mercy (i.e. the Tree of Life). On the way Seth is attacked and bitten by a wild beast, which goes away when ordered by Seth. Michael refuses to give them the oil at that time, but promises to give it at the end of time, when all flesh will be raised up, the delights of paradise will be given to the holy people and God will be in their midst. On their return, Adam says to Eve: "What hast thou done? Thou hast brought upon us great wrath which is death." (chapters 5-14) Later only Seth can witness the taking-up of Adam at his funeral in a divine chariot, which deposits him in the Garden of Eden.

Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaqi) refers to Seth as the ancestor of Noah and hence the father of all mankind, all other humans having perished in the Great Flood.

In gnosticism, Seth is seen as a replacement given by God for Abel, whom Cain had slain. It is said that late in life, Adam gave Seth secret teachings that would become the kabbalah. The Zohar refers to Seth as "ancestor of all the generations of the tzaddikim" (Hebrew: righteous ones).[5]

According to Seder Olam Rabbah, based on Jewish reckoning, he was born in 130 AM. According to Aggadah, he had 33 sons and 23 daughters. According to the Seder Olam Rabbah, he died in 1042 AM.

According to Josephus

In the Antiquities of the Jews, Josephus refers to Seth as virtuous and of excellent character, and reports that his descendants invented the wisdom of the heavenly bodies, and built the "pillars of the sons of Seth", two pillars inscribed with many scientific discoveries and inventions, notably in astronomy. They were built by Seth's descendants based on Adam's prediction that the world would be destroyed at one time by fire and another time by global flood, in order to protect the discoveries and be remembered after the destruction. One was composed of brick, and the other of stone, so that if the pillar of brick should be destroyed, the pillar of stone would remain, both reporting the ancient discoveries, and informing men that a pillar of brick was also erected. Josephus reports that the pillar of stone remained in the land of Siriad in his day.

William Whiston, a 17/18th century translator of the Antiquities, stated in a footnote that he believed Josephus mistook Seth for Sesostris, king of Egypt, the erector of the pillar in Siriad (being a contemporary name for the territories in which Sirius was venerated (i.e., Egypt). He stated that there was no way for any pillars of Seth to survive the deluge, because the deluge buried all such pillars and edifices far underground in the sediment of its waters. The Perennialist writer Nigel Jackson identifies the land of Siriad in Josephus' account with Syria, citing related Mandaean legends regarding the 'Oriental Land of Shyr' in connection with the visionary mytho-geography of the prophetic traditions surrounding Seth.[13]('On the Prophethood of Seth in the Abrahamic Traditions', Sacred Web volume 25, Summer 2010)


NOTES

Seth means 'appointed, substituted, Granted.

Genesis 4:25: 'And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

Genesis 5:3 - " And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image: and called his name Seth.

The Book of Jubilees 4:7-9 - 'and in the fourth year of the fifth week [130 A.M.] they became joyful, and Adam knew his wife again, and she bare him a son, and he called his name Seth; for he said 'GOD has raised up a second seed unto us on the earth instead of Abel; for Cain slew him.' And in the sixth week [134-40 A.M.] he begat his daughter Azura.' [Taking into account that Seth was born after Abel was murdered by Cain, Seth was born in the 32 year of the 3rd Jubilee (49yrs x2) + (4wks x 7 yrs) + (4 yrs) =130 yrs) This would make the year of his birth 3874 B.C.]

The Book of Jubilees: 4:10 - 'And in the fifth week of the fifth jubilee Seth took Azura his sister to be his wife. [4x49 yrs =] 196 yrs + [7yrs x 5wks =] 35 yrs = 231 yrs from the beginning which would place the year of marriage about 3773 B.C.]

SETH'S FAMILY showed their reliance on God by 'Calling on the name of the Lord'.

Genesis 5:6-8: 'And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos: And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters; And all the years of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.

Seth was 105 years old when Enos was born.

DEATH

He was 912 years old when he died.

NOTES: Noah is a descendant of Seth. Therefore all of us today are descendants of Seth and not the murderer Cain.


Islam


Islamic tradition reveres Seth as the third son of Adam and Eve. It views him as a righteous son and sees him as the gift bestowed upon Adam after the death of Abel. Although Seth is not mentioned in the Qur'an, Muslim tradition generally regards him as a prophet like his father, and the one who continued teaching mankind the laws of God after the death of Adam. Islamic lore gives Seth an exalted position among the Antediluvian Patriarchs of the Generations of Adam, and some sources even cite Seth as the receiver of a scripture.

Islamic literature holds that Seth was born when Adam was past 100 and that, by the time Adam died, Adam had already made Seth the heir to him in guiding his people. Muslims hold that Seth was given wisdom in several different aspects of life, including knowledge of time, a prophetic vision of the future Great Flood, and inspiration on the methods of night prayer. Islam, like Judaism and Christianity, traces the genealogy of mankind back to Seth, since Abel did not leave any heirs and Cain's heirs, according to tradition, were destroyed by the Great Flood. In Muslim tradition, many of the traditional Islamic crafts[13] are also traced back to Seth, such as the making of horn combs. Seth has also played a role in Islamic mysticism, known as Sufism, and Ibn Arabi included a chapter in his 'Bezels of Wisdom' on Seth, titled "The Wisdom of Expiration in the Word of Seth".

Some Muslims believe that Seth's tomb is located in the village of Al-Nabi Shayth (literally meaning "The Prophet Seth") in Lebanon, where a mosque is named after him. A rival tradition, mentioned by Arab geographers from the 13th century onwards, placed the tomb of Nabi Shith ("Prophet Seth") in the Palestinian village of Bashshit southwest of Ramla village. Indeed, according to the Palestine Exploration Fund, Bashshit stands for Beit Shith, meaning "House of Seth".[16] The village was depopulated with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, but the three-domed structure considered Seth's tomb still exists in the Israeli moshav Aseret built on the site.

Shrine in Mosul

On July 26, 2014, forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, blew up Nabi Shiyt (Prophet Seth) shrine in Mosul. Sami al-Massoudi, the deputy head of the Shiite endowment agency overseeing holy sites, confirmed that destruction. He added, ISIL took some of the artifacts to an unknown location.

Isikust Sett . (eesti)

Ja Aadam sai taas ühte oma naisega, kes tõi ilmale poja ja pani temale nimeks Sett, öeldes: „Jumal andis mulle teise järeltulija Aabeli asemele, kuna Kain ta tappis.” (1Ms 4:25)

Kui Aadam oli elanud sada kolmkümmend aastat, siis sündis temale poeg, kes oli tema sarnane, tema nägu, ja ta pani sellele nimeks Sett.

Ja Aadama elupäevi oli pärast Seti sündimist kaheksasada aastat, ja temale sündis poegi ja tütreid. (1Ms 5:3-4)

Adam & Noah. Normally genealogies are traced by the first-born sons, but Cain killed Abel and then was banished, so Seth became almost like a new “first-born”.

Age 972 yrs.
