All the Men of the Bible – Enos, Enosh
Enos, Enosh

Enos, Enosh [Ē'nos,Ē'nosh]—man is his frailty. The son of Seth and father of Cainan, he lived for 905 years (Gen. 4:26; 5:6-10; 1 Chron. 1:1). He was also an ancestor of Christ (Luke 3:38). It is mentioned in connection with the birth of Enos that it was then that man began to call upon the name of the Lord. This first mention of recourse to prayer is suggestive. Men were somehow driven by sickness, frailty and dependence to cry for health and help to the invisible Creator.
