A Textual Commentary On Luke 3:36

(a) Bar Hebraeus on Kainan:
After ARPHAXAD [came] KAINAN his son. When he was one hundred and thirty years old he begot SHALAH; all [the days of] his life were four hundred and thirty years. Now EUSEBIUS doth not reckon this KAINAN and his years in his table of years; neither doth the Hebrew Book (i.e. the Bible: see Genesis xi. 12-14), and our Syrian Book doth not. But LUKE (see chap. iii, v. 36) mentioneth him in the Gospel. And according to what is said, it was he who invented CHALDAYUTHA (i.e. Astrology and the Art of Magic). His sons worshipped him as a god, and set up an image of him; thence began the worship of idols. And he built the city of HARRAN in the name of HARAN his son.
(Chronography, translated from Syriac by Ernest A. Wallis Budge)
