Enoch Walked With God!

Enoch, the seventh from Adam (Jude 14), who "walked with God and was not, for God took him" (Genesis 5:24) is probably the same person as Utuabzu the seventh sage in the Uruk King List. It states, "Utuabzu, who ascended to heaven" (Hess & Tsumura 1994, 231). The Uruk List in addition to the Sumerian King List has seven sages corresponding to the seven kings that ruled before the flood. The sages bring different kinds of culture and learning. Cain's line seems to parallel the beginning of culture and crafts (Genesis 4:18-22).
