28 Howard Jacobson, A Commentary on Pseudo-Philo’s Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum. With Latin Text and English Translation (AGJUC 31; Leiden, 1996) pp. 282–83, discusses 27 ’     37 very detailed account of all variations, but this question need not distract us here, since neither Pseudo-Jonathan nor the other Targumim gave a name to the twin sister. What is interesting is precisely this silence on the matter of names. Since Pseudo-Jonathan is fond of giving names to the characters he introduces, the omission of the daughter’s name is a telling indication, in my view, that the meturgeman in this case is only summarizing a well-known interpretation.

The connection of childbirth and the loss of a life does not occur in Genesis. 4 2 Baruch 56:5–6; 73:7 One can find some brief references to Gen 3:16 in 2 Baruch and 4 Ezra. . The authors do not so much comment on scripture as use it as a reference point for their own discourse. 49 Therefore, the answer to the questions as to how they read Gen 3:16, and if they saw a tension between Gen 3:16 and Gen 4, is not straightforward.

Since this phrase is absent from Genesis 4:1, the meturgeman concluded that Cain, unlike Seth, was not born in Adam’s likeness, and was thus not his offspring. Pseudo-Jonathan’s Aramaic translation of Genesis 5:3 adds the following to the biblical text (here in italics): When Adam had lived a hundred and thirty years he begot Seth (the biblical text says a son) who resembled his image and likeness. For before that, Eve 19 The biblical text simply says that “she bore again his brother Abel,” without expressly saying that Adam knew Eve and that she conceived.
