Summary: (c. 6,317 BCE) Resha, son of Melkiah, was a distant descendant of Enoch
and Larisha. He and his wife, Sheba, had a son named Peku-Hamaliel (B:20:17-19)
And when Melkiah was 210 years old, he became the father of Resha, and after he begat
Resha, Melkiah lived 350 years.
But Resha was a wanderer and he journeyed throughout many lands. And when he was
180 years old, he returned unto the land of his birth and took Sheba to wife and
she gave him a son whom he called Peku-Hamaliel. And all the days of Resha were 720
years and he died.
Now Peku-Hamaliel lived 160 years and he begat Hoda, and after the birth of Hoda,
Peku-Hamaliel lived 312 years and he died; wherefore, all the sons of his loins did
gather, and they carried the body of Peku-Hamaliel to his father, even Resha; and
Resha took the body of his son and buried him upon Mount Hazim, for he loved his
Adamic lineage traced through Enoch (Beginnings 20:4-25)
