Shem and Seth (Sir 49:16-49:16)

“Shem was honored among men.

Seth was honored among men.”

Sirach also mentions Shem and Seth. Shem was the believing son of Noah in Genesis, chapters 10-11, while Seth was the believing son of Adam in Genesis, chapter 5. They both make the list in 1 Chronicles, chapter 1. The non-canonical work of the Book of Jubilees has many stories about Seth.
