Enos

Sort by:
Enos: Enos (or Enosh) was the son of Seth (the third son of Adam and Eve). He was born in the year 235 from creation (3526 BCE) and died in the year 1140 from creation (2621 BCE). It was in his times when idolatry began taking root, and the semi-great flood occurred.
There is very little mention of him in the Torah, and most of what we know about him and his times is from Midrashic and Talmudic sources.
