Genesis 4:25-26


The Hebrew story of Adam, Eve and their sons was it just a simple story of a first family?

"Genesis 4:25 And Adam [mankind] knew his wife life] again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth appointed]: For Elohim[the many], said she [life], hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel [vanity/vapor], whom Cain [I have gotten a man from the Lord] slew."

"Genesis 4:26 And to Seth [appointed], to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos [mankind in the rough]: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD."

Was this Astrological?

Who was Seth and Enosh and what did their names mean? Let's start with Enosh. The name Enosh is one of a few words to indicate man or mankind and it is rooted in

('nsh 136) is the root of (enosh 136a) meaning man or mankind in its frailty and weakness.

('nsh 137) is the assumed root of ('ishsha 137a), wife, woman, female. [Jones reads Man Frail and Miserable. NOBSE reads Mortal.][1]

In the laws of Maat there are three different types of Man[kind] according to Maat the 11 Laws of God, Pg. 15, written by Ra Un Nefer Amen

  1. Human - man in the rough

  2. Man -Man proper

  3. God -Man/Woman

The defining principle is the will.

The human [Enosh] is so labeled to denote that it is an earthly being -hummus earth[ the Hebrew Adamah] man or hu-man. this label denotes the kind of man [mankind] whose will is so undeveloped [it is asleep] that the earthly part of the being -emotions and sensuality [the unconscious] -determines his/her behavior and destiny. In addition, the will is asleep, t mental process is dominated by the acceptance of associative thought drift activity. Passivity is the hallmark.

The second category is Man proper. the will is reached full maturity [awakened] and the entities chief identifying mark  the struggle to impose will on the emotion and sensuality; to achieve mastery over the emotion unconscious]. Dominated by Reason and Knowledge.

The third category corresponds to the Man that has consummated the union of the will and the unconscious; has recovered the original state of unity and peace -Hetep [Nirvana]. Here there is no struggle because spiritual power has been added to the faculties of external action and wisdom [intuition has bee added to reason. God-man.

"...Kamitic cosmology i have designated them as Sahu-man, Ab-man and Ba-man according to the spirit they attain to."

"Genesis 4:26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD."

Some translations say: "...then began to call themselves by the name of the Lord."

Could this have been the God-man phase of the Creation story? It is said in  the Bible that Jesus was the last Adam [some versions say second Adam]. Could Enosh them have been simply a man?

"What is man [Enosh], that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man [Adam], that thou visit him? Psalms 8:4

LORD, what [is] man [Adam], that thou takest knowledge of him! [or] the son of man [Enosh], that thou makest account of him! Psalms 144:3.

In the Hebrew definition of the variant types of man:

  1. Adam - mankind or man irrespective of sex [Ben Adam  mortal man]

  2. Ish -the sex or phallus of a male virility or strength.

  3. Enosh - man or kind the common people the root is mortal or the malignancy of morality.

  4. Gebber - Strong and mighty, to show oneself as a war-like man or husband.

E’nosh was the son, brought forth by Seth, who was brought forth by Eve or Chavvah, the ‘mother of all living’ as a replacement for the slain Abel or Hevel. [Hebel]  Abel of Ay-bel means breath or vapor. It can also mean vanity or something transitory and unsatisfactory. Cain the slayer of Abel or the breath or vapor means: The boy's name Cain/Cain is pronounced Kayin. It is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is "something produced; spear". The spear is usually a phallic reference a weapon of authority in battle and genetics. See Baruch - to praise also a spear.  The Hebrews understood that 'praise' or Baruch [Baruch Atah Adonai Elyohenu Melek Ha Olam]  was the first  go up in battle, so Judah went first.  The tribe of Judah were probably the spearmen as well as singers.

Seth or Shet (Hebrew: שֵׁת, Standard Šet, Tiberian Šē; Arabic: شيث Shith or Shiyth; "Placed; appointed"), in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, is the third listed son of Adam and Eve and brother of Cain and Abel and is the only other son 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 "replacement" for Abel "because Cain killed him"...According to the Book of Jubilees, Seth married his younger sister Azura, was 105 when his son Enos was born, and died at the age of 912.[2]

Due to developments in the Egyptian language over the 3,000 years that Set was worshipped, by the Greek period, the t in Set was pronounced so indistinguishably from ‘th’ that the Greeks spelt it as Seth.

Remember, we do have a Greek Old Testament the Septuagint.

This is interesting because the name Azura the sister/wife of Set means ‘blue’ as in ‘blue sky’ or heavens.

Azur:  Female Persian name meaning "blue"

Azura: Female Persian name meaning "blue"

 The sky is called Nut in Egypt :

“The sky goddess whose arched body formed the vault of heaven gave birth to the sun each dawn and swallowed him each dusk; conversely, she bore the myriad stars each evening and gobbled them up each dawn.


Azar can also mean ‘fire’. Have we seen this word Azar before? Remember the Vault of Heaven would you?

Here are the Strong’s Concordance choices.

247 'azar aw-zar' a primitive root; to belt:--bind (compass) about, gird (up, with).

5826 `azar aw-zar' a primitive root; to surround, i.e. protect or aid:--help, succour.

We need help in deciphering her name and function let us give it a biblical context first:

Genesis 2:18 And Elohim said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.

Genesis 2:20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him

The help was the word Azar and the meet was also the word Azar. This word is intensified when it is doubled although they leave that out in the Concordance renderings. When speaking about Chavvah the ‘mother of all living’ as she is called by Adam her husband.  She is referred to as Azar-Azar.

In the extra-biblical literature Enosh mother is Azura, his sister who coincidentally is named after her mother’s role as Azar-Azar, helpmeet and binder, defender and protector in the Garden. 

Azura means blue sky …but also relates to the mother of all living and her role in the garden for the man. Azura was [said to be] the daughter of Eve and wife of Enosh and that same name can also mean Fire.

But, what are the Hebrew words for Blue sky?  Here the Hebrew word is suppose to be t@keleth {tek-ay'-leth} because of the blue dye found in a snail in the Indian Ocean , but that seems a bit circuitous. That word references a Cerulean purple color and not blue, but the prime root word is sh@cheleth {shekh-ay'-leth} which relates to incense from India called onycha.

Then we get to the root word: shachal {shakh'-al} which is defined as a black lion [Syrian]. We never get to the color blue that was the color of the sky first heaven, but we get a black purple reference for the sky which can only be the night or the distant vault of the heavens. That was also represented by Nut in Egypt.

"The word for Sky or Heavens in Hebrew is: Shamayim {shaw-mah'-yim} dual of an unused singular Shameh {shaw-meh'} which means firmament or vault over the globe of earth. "

The Egyptian iconic image is this, a dark blue-black woman with a body of stars or Kohab


Black Lion: In some cosmologies Leo, the lion is associated with the classical element Fire, and thus called a Fire Sign. Azura is also the name for Fire.

There it is the ‘Vault of Heaven’ the same symbolism as 'Nut' in Egypt.  Here is further extra-biblical proof Seth’s wife and her name Azura is an astrological reference that can be traced to Egypt. 

Habar {haw-bar'} which they call: a primitive root of uncertain derivation, is related to the Heavens and those who plot them called astrologers or those who divide the heavens into quadrants.


So, the Hebrew reference for the word Azura rendered ‘Blue Sky’ is actually the same as the Black Vault in the Heavens that is the realm of the astrologers. Her name is an astrological reference.  How does Azura the night sky relate to Set?

Set is the god or neteru of the night and Azura is the night sky. What is the Astrological or Astro-theological reference?

Yet, Set was thought to be a follower [as night follows day] of Ra [Day/Sun]. It was he who defended the Solar Barque each night as it traveled through the underworld, the only Egyptian deity who could kill the serpent Apep - Ra's most dangerous enemy - each night as it threatened to swallow the Barque [Ark].

Then Set, the strong one, the son of Nut, said "As for me, I am Set, the strongest of the Divine Company. Every day I slay the enemy of Ra when I stand at the helm of the Barque of Millions of Years, which no other god dare do."[3]

M’azzar’oth meaning "From the night skies" [with a feminine plural ending OT]. ‘M’ is the prefix from in Hebrew and ‘son’ in Egyptian and west African languages..  

So, that would leave the word 'azzar/azar'  the OT is a feminine ending and the M means son. Azar meaning the helper and the vault in heaven.

The meaning of the word Mazzaroth has been in contention for some hundreds of years as the scarce but, adequate literature confirms. Traditional sources generally interpret the word as meaning constellation, though usually understood in the plural, constellations; where others agree it specifically refers to the zodiac and possibly the planet ‘Venus’ 

Leo: It is the domicile of the Sun. The Egyptian pharaoh Nechepso, and his priest Petosiris, taught that at the creation of the world the Sun rose here near Denebola, and hence Leo was Domicilium Solis, the emblem of fire and heat, and the "House of the Sun".

House of the Sun is Heliopolis and also relates to Zion in Israel .

However, for those with an enquiring desire for the esoteric elements of the mystery of the M’azzar’oth, much will be revealed and certain elements of truth will not be lost, but remain for all generations : even as the author of the Book of Job intended, for the things which are revealed are ours and our children's forever [Deuteronomy 29:29].

According to the ancient Hebrews, the names of the constellations, figures and the signs of the ancient zodiac were given by Yahweh (the unutterable name of God) from the beginning of creation; however as it has been known to happen, certain etymological meanings and roots have eroded throughout time, with the ancient Hebrew language undergoing numerous changes and modifications in its history.[4]


Again: M’Azzar’oth contains the word Azzar or Azar meaning helper or comforter and the "Feminine One" who is the covering and alludes to the vault of heaven as we have shown or the Egyptian iconographic image of Nut the vault over the sky.

Nut [Sky] and Geb [Earth] with his penis pointed at her navel.

M’ azzar’ oth means:  From the ‘helping one/feminine’ in the Heavens. Set was a God of the night sky, storms and earthquakes.

He was strongly worshipped in Upper Egypt and the Delta. His birthday was celebrated at the end of the year. [see Dec 25th].

Description: “In early times Set was worshipped as the god of wind and the desert storms, and prayed to that he would grant the strength of the storms to his followers. Although he was always a dark and moody god, he was believed to be the ally of his brother and sister, Osiris and Isis, the counterpart to his sister-wife Nephthys, and the defender of their father, Ra.[5]

Seth was called the seed of his mother. The variant spelling of the name is Sheth, Shethar {shay-thawr'} which is Persian for the word  ‘star’ found in the book of Esther 1:14, which is the 7 princes of the Medo-Persian empires which references the belt of Orion or 7 stars in his belt.

Orion over Giza [next]

Shethar Bowzanay {sheth-ar' bo-zen-ah'-ee} is called the star of Splendor a prince of Persia . Ezra 5:3, 6:6

So we can say that Seth or Sheth is another word for Star in another language other than Hebrew, although it is used in the bible but said it is of unknown derivation by the Concordance people. 

Now the Hebrew word for Star is kowkab {ko-kawb'} from the root: To burn and to hollow, to trace or excavate, like a window or aperture or hole to bore through.

Although the meaning may escape the Concordance people it is obvious to me, the stars in the night sky look as though they are holes in a cloth or blanket in which light shines through. This is also to the word for stargazer or seer. Even the American Algonquin Indians understood the simplicity of it all.

7 stars of Orion

"Long ago, the Indians believed the departed left this world and their spirits went to the happy hunting grounds in the sky. At night, the Great Spirit would draw a blanket over the sky to make it dark. The Indians believed the points of light seen in the blanket were holes made by the spirits as they passed through the blanket on their way to the happy hunting grounds. Some of the holes were large, making bright points of light, while others were so small they were hardly visible. The Indians thought that the size of the hole had nothing to do with how powerful a chief the person had been, or how large his land was, or how many enemies he had killed in battle, but instead was larger for the number of good deeds and acts of kindness the departed had done throughout his life."[6]

Let’s put a conclusion on this short essay by looking at the scriptures in Genesis 4:25-26 in a new light:

And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For Elohim [plural/nerteru], said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew.

And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos [synonym for Adam or man]: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord or call themselves by the name of the Lord.

To summarize our initial scripture and put t is context of the Egyptian Creation story of the heavens and stars reinterpreted into man and mankind by the Hebrews.

"Genesis 4:25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth [appointed]: For Elohim [the many], said she [life], hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew."

"Genesis 4:26 And to Seth [appointed], to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the LORD."

Here is the summary to Genesis 4

25"And mankind/male and female knew and understood and was initiated by this; and she bare a class of guild of men/women and call them by the name of the [son] of the night sky. For the attributes of the One God and she [life] hath appointed me another seed [That from which anything springs; first principle; original; source] instead of the vapor/spirit, whom the man of the Lord slew.

26 "[Seth] the son of the night sky, the seed of the mother of all living [Eve], who was married to his sister/wife [Azura] the ‘vault of heaven’ that held the stars out on a blanket, the protector, gave birth to son or class/guild/order of men/stargazers [Enosh]. Then they [the sons of Enoshian class] men began to call on the attributes of name LORD/God/Elohim."
