Enos [EBD]

man the son of Seth, and grandson of Adam (Gen. 5:6-11; Luke 3:38). He lived nine hundred and five years. In his time "men began to call upon the name of the Lord" (Gen. 4:26), meaning either (1) then began men to call themselves by the name of the Lord (marg.) i.e., to distinguish themselves thereby from idolaters; or (2) then men in some public and earnest way began to call upon the Lord, indicating a time of spiritual revival.

ENOS, son of Seth, Gen. 4:26; 5:6-11; Luke 3:38.
Called Enosh, 1 Chr. 1:1.

ENOS [SMITH]

(mortal man), the son of Seth, (Genesis 4:26; 5:6,7,9,10,11; Luke 3:38) properly ENOSH, as in (1 Chronicles 1:1)

ENOSH [SMITH]

Same as ENOS. (1 Chronicles 1:1)

ENOS; ENOSH [ISBE]

ENOS; ENOSH - e'-nos, e'-nosh ('enosh, "mortal"; 'Enos): In the New Testament (the Revised Version (British and American) and the King James Version) and the Old Testament (the King James Version except 1 Ch 1:1), the form is Enos; in the Old Testament (the Revised Version (British and American) and 1 Ch 1:1 the King James Version), the form is Enosh. The son of Seth and grandson of Adam (Gen 4:26; 5:6 ff; 1 Ch 1:1; Lk 3:38). Enosh denotes man as frail and mortal. With Enosh a new religious development began, for "then began men to call upon the name of Yahweh" (Gen 4:26). There seems to be an implied contrast to Gen 4:17 ff which records a development in another department of life, represented by Enoch the son of Cain.
