Lehite PN 1. Scribe, son of JACOB, and father of JAROM, between 544-420 B.C. (Jacob 7:27; Enos 1:1, 5, 6, 11, 17, 19; Jarom 1:1)

Etymology

KJV Enos = HEBREW ʾĕnôš "Man"[1] (Genesis 4:26, 5:6-11) = KJV Enosh (1 Chronicles 1:1). Matt Bowen argues for wordplay at the introduction of ENOS as son of a just "man" ʾĕnôš.[2]

Variants

Deseret Alphabet: 𐐀𐐤𐐊𐐝 (iːnʌs), 𐐀𐐤𐐊𐐞 (iːnʌz)
