1 After the death of Enosh, Qĕynan led his people in righteousness and innocence, as his father had commanded him. He also continued to minister before the body of Aḏam, in the Cave of Treasures.

2 Then when he had lived nine hundred and ten years, suffering and sickness came upon him. And when he was about to enter into rest, all the fathers with their wives and children came to him, and he baraḵ them, and earnestly urged them by the blood of Heḇel, the just, saying to them, “Let no one among you descend from this Qodesh Mountain; and do not make friends with the children of Qayin the murderer.”

3 Mahalal’ĕl, his first-born son, received this commandment from his father, who baraḵ him and died.

4 Then Mahalal’ĕl embalmed him with sweet spices, and laid him in the Cave of Treasures, with his fathers; and they made offerings for him, as was the custom of their fathers.
