Cainan (son of Arphaxad)

The name that is transliterated as “Cainan” in English is translated in Libras (Brazilian Sign Language) with a sign that combines “possession” (a possible meaning of the name) and “descend from the father.” (Source: Missão Kophós )

Note: The reading Cainan goes back to the Ancient Greek Septuagint translation which inserted a generation between Arphaxad and Cainan (see Genesis 10:24 et al.)
