Topics Definition of Hebrew Names


By Jeff A. Benner

And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan: And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died. (KJV: Genesis 5:9-11)

Enosh is the son of Seth and the grandson of Adam. Enosh lived 90 years and gave birth to Cainan and lived a total of 905 years. The name in Hebrew is אנוש (enosh, Strong's #583), meaning "man." This word/name comes from the root אנש (A.N.Sh, Strong's #605) meaning "mortal" in the sense of weak and sick. The word/name enosh is closely related to the Hebrew word איש (iysh, Strong's #376) also meaning "man."
