Who was Noah’s Wife?
’mzârâ, the daughter of Râkê’êl, the daughter of his father’s brother. Jub. 4:33.
How did Cain die?
His house fell on him which was appropriate and the origin of the Torah doctrine of

Gen. offers no detail on this so this is not a discrepancy. Jub. 38:2.

Esau “came out red” (Gn. 25:25), David “was ruddy, and withal of
a beautiful countenance” (1 Sa. 16:12), and “ruddy and of a fair
countenance” (1 Sa. 17:42)
The other 2 times the word is used it means ruddy which is also red but both times it is
specific to countenance or skin tone. David was not black nor white but medium brown
or red. So was Esau. Esau also had hair all over but it was not red as this word is
