ENOSH, ENOS (ē'nŏsh, ē'nŏs, Heb. ‘ĕnôsh, mortal, Gr. Enos). Son of Seth and grandson of Adam (Gen.4.26; Gen.5.6-Gen.5.11; Luke.3.38). Attached to his birth is an implication of godly fear. He lived 905 years.


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.)
