      I wonder of the Syriac fragment of 8:2-4 follows the text of the Ethiopic closely, or deviates. If it follows it pretty closely, we could assume with a fair degree of probability that 8:1 referred to Kainan. If not, then anything is possible.

      > Which of these, if any, contains Jubilees 8:1-3 I just don't know.

      None of the Qumran fragments contain Jubilees 8.
      The extant parts of the Latin of Jubilees begin at 8:10.
      A Syriac fragment has most of 8:2-4.

      The Latin and Ethiopic manuscripts of Jubilees tend to be harmonized to the Vulgate and LXX (via the Ethiopic OT).
      However, the Syriac could be an independent witness to the pre-Christian text of Jubilees if it is translated directly from the Hebrew, as Tisserant argued.
