[Seth] (Hebrew: appointed)

Third son of Adam, born after Abel's murder, hence his name (Genesis 4). He is the direct ancestor of those holy patriarchs known as the Sethite, the best known being Noe. His descendants who were called the Sons of God remained faithful to God until they mingled with the accursed race of Cain (Genesis 6).
