      Ahhh. I did not notice that fine difference!

      It did appear to be a digression in Jubilees, and thus may not have been a part of it originally.

      Ken Penner, though, said a Syriac fragment, which may be independent of the Ethiopic, has 8:2-4. If 8:2-4 did not originally refer to Kainan, then who? I did not notice either R H Charles (_APOT_) or O S Wintermute (Charlesworth's _OT Pseudepigrapha_) refer to this discrepancy in the footnotes to their translations.

      Interesting ...

      Well, acc. to Gen 10:24, but acc. to Gen 10:22 he looks like a son of Shem. Perhaps the name was omitted at some stage to get rid of this problem? Not of relevance here, though.

      Thanks for alerting me to Jubilees 8:1-5. Not sure though to take "he" for Arphaxad.
