Enos, Enosh

ENOS, ENOSH ē’ nŏs, e’ nŏsh (אֱנֹֽושׁ, ̓Ενώς, G1968, man, mankind). Son of Seth and the grandson of Adam; an ancestor of Christ. He became the father of Kenan after he lived ninety years. He had other sons and daughters and died at 905 years (Gen 5:6-11). At his birth it is noted that “men began to call upon the name of the Lord” (4:26). The spelling Enos comes from the Gr. and is so found in Luke 3:38 (except NEB). (The KJV uses Enos throughout except for 1 Chron 1:1 where it is Enosh.)
