“Gather unto me the patriarchs of Zion and with them Amram, the son of Tobid and
Ramoth, the son of Zetrah, and bring them unto a mount three days journey from you,
for I desire that they should see the God of Zion, that their faith might increase
Summary: According to Azrael’s Commentary, Tobid was one of the Tetrarchs of the
Sethian Empire who died at the battle of Paujen (AZC — Amram, son of Tobid). Tobid
is only mentioned in association with his son Amram, “the son of Tobid”, a master
gardener who helped establish the city of Zion (B:8:2, 6).
Therefore, Enoch ascended the mount and with him went Amram, the son of Tobid, and
Ramoth, the son of Zetrah, and all the patriarchs also.
