Genun – Jubal – Musical Worship – Book of Adam and Eve
The Four Rawuns: Rawuns – Arabian bards, the legend-keepers and storytellers. This note is shows the connection between Genun and Lamech’s children. No better way to seduce people than through “children in the marketplace playing games.”
“Jubal, Jabal, Tubal-Cain, and Naamah were known as the four Rawuns (bards) Great explorers, musical enchanters, warrirors and adventueres, the songs of their adventures are the staple of any Moorish courts musician or interpretive dancer. Cursed by Sethu, all of these found their lovely voices changed to whispering, hissing snake-like sibilant sounds.
Genun, the child of Jubal and Naamah is said to be progenitor of the Ophidians. In Genun the arts of the Rawuns were pereverted and used to subdue adversaries reducing them to slavery (or sacrifices).
Goddess of the arts (literature, poetry, music, dancing, painting, sculpting, etc.), harems, beauty, sexual pleasure and all sorts of epicurean delights. Phaaus is neutral good in alignment and has many symbols such as the quill, the lyre and the ibex.

9. Many details of the Genun story, taken from the fifth-century A.D. Ethiopian Book of Adam, are paralleled in midrashic writings.
Although Genun’s name suggests “Kenan,” who appears in Genesis V:9 as the son of Enoch, he is a composite Kenite character: the invention of musical instruments being attributed in Genesis to Jubal, and of edged iron blades to his brother Tubal Cain.
Genun was said to occupy “the Land of the Slime Pits,” namely the southern shores of the Dead Sea (Genesis 14:10), doubtless because the evil city of Sodom stood there (see 32:6).
Qeynan (h7018) kay-nawn’; from the same as 7064; fixed; Kenan, an antediluvian: – Cainan, Kenan.

Of course, literal Jerusalem was the capital of the Jebusites. This was taken over by David and the kingdom which God permitted to lead Israel into the destruction they had earned at Mount Sinai when they rose up to play in musical idolatry:
Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar. Gal 4:24
But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. Gal 4:26
For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. Gal 4:25
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Rev 1:8
In ancient tradition, after Adam and Eve were removed from the Garden of Eden Satan tried to further tempt them with his heavenly singing groups. He failed until Seth became the Patriarch and remained totally faithful to God as the Word.
The Sethites continued to live on the Holy Mountain which is treated as somewhere between the earth and heaven. The Cainites lived down in the dark valley of the true, physical earth.
When Satan failed after many efforts of seduction to drag the Sethites down with him, he picked on the youth, Genun, as a composite of Jubal, Jabal, Tubal-Cain and Naamah who are all connected with the magic of musical sound used to enchant. Through the ministry of Jubal and his musical worship teams, Satan finally succeeded. The serpent in Genesis was the symbol of Babylonia and is defined by Hebrew words which follow a trail to musical instruments and soothsaying.
The writer of Adam and Eve has told us the complete story of the fall and he will not leave us in suspense but will return to the beginning and tell us about the motives and methods which Satan used to bring all of these events about.
While these writers were not inspired they lived closer to the real story and knew all of the ancient traditions recorded in the very first records. These documents at least have the value of a proof-text sermon:
“There are a vast number of false and spurious writings which deserve mention at this point; not because anyone would seriously contend for their authority, but because they do represent the religious lore of the Hebrews in the inter testamental period. Strangely enough, the New Testament writers make use of a number of the books, for example, Jude 14-15 have a possible quotation from the Book of Enoch (1:9) and the Assumption of Moses (1:9); and an allusion from the Penitence of Jannes and Jambres is found in II Timothy 3:8. Of course, it should be remembered that the New Testament also quotes from the heathen poets Aratus (Acts 17:28); Meander (1 Cor. 15:33); and Epimenides (Titus 1:12). Truth is truth no matter where it is found whether uttered by a heathen poet, a pagan prophet (Num. 24:17), or even a dumb animal (Num. 22:28).” (Nix/Geisler, A General Introduction to the Bible, p. 165).
The Story of the Fall Begins
For a quick partial review you may read just the bold print. The
“Now the reason for which the children of Jared went down from the Holy mountain, is this, that we will now reveal unto you” (Second Adam and Eve, 19:9).
It all began with the Cainites “leaving the fold” at the top of the mountain and going down to the valleys and river bottoms (Lot’s Choice) where the soil was rich and one could gain a livelihood without too much work. Since “an idle hand is the Devil’s workshop” the leisure time opened the Cainites up to listening to unholy spirits
The writer proposes to explain how Satan overpowered the children of Jared and chapter twenty explains that his tools were ravishing music, strong drink, and colorful clothing. The Sethites first begin to look with lust, they revolted from the counsel of the wise, they descended into the valley of iniquity, and they could never get back upon the mountain.
Second Adam And Eve CHAP. XX.
Ravishing music; strong drink loosed among the sons of Cain. They don colorful clothing.
The children of Seth look on with longing eyes. They revolt from wise counsel; they descend the mountain into the valley of iniquity. They can not ascend the mountain again.
Satan worked directly with early men and women to seduce them away from the Holy mountain but if his influence was going to spread he would have to recruit disciples and show them how to carry on his work.
