Genesis 5:2 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The heading in Genesis 5:1 runs thus: "This is the book (sepher) of the generations (tholedoth) of Adam." On tholedoth, see Genesis 2:4. Sepher is a writing complete in itself, whether it consist of one sheet or several, as for instance the "bill of divorcement" in Deuteronomy 24:1, Deuteronomy 24:3. The addition of the clause, "in the day that God created man," etc., is analogous to Genesis 2:4; the creation being mentioned again as the starting point, because all the development and history of humanity was rooted there.
