1 These things were a source of amazement and concern unto Lemeḵ who thereupon went unto his father, Methushelaḥ, and finding him in the Hĕyḵal he said, My father, this day did my wife, thy daughter, bear a man child.

2 And at his birth the room was full of light so that we could not look upon him and when we could look upon him, behold, the child’s hair was white and fire seemed to come from his eyes and then he stood upon his feet and sang a hymn of praise unto 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and lo, he seemed to have the tongue of a messenger.

3 Tell me now the meaning of these things and how can I raise such a son?
