1Voici l’histoire de la famille d’Adam. Quand Dieu créa les êtres humains, il les fit de telle sorte qu’ils lui ressemblent. Il les créa homme et femme, il les bénit et leur donna le nom d’hommes le jour où ils furent créés.

Adam était âgé de 130 ans quand il eut un fils qui lui ressemble, qui soit son image. Il lui donna le nom de Seth. Après cela, Adam vécut encore 800 ans et il eut d’autres enfants. La durée totale de sa vie fut de 930 ans, puis il mourut.
