Now Abel knew his wife and she bore him a son and called his name Gimel, for he was
filled with the joy of life. And towards Abel was God pleased and he blessed him
with every good thing, and the children of men had respect for Abel, for God was
with him always.
Summary: Gimel was the only son of Abel and his wife, Yoshibel (B:3:1-7). Gimel
was a young infant when his father was murdered by Cain (B:3:6-26). At the Adamic
Council, Gimel publicly opposed the election of Cain to lead the Adamic family, and
supported Seth instead (AZC - Gimel).
Azrael’s Commentary - Gimel
The only son of Abel, founder of the city Aramis which later became one of the twelve
cities of the Sethian Empire. In occupation Gimel was a grower of grapes and maker
of wine, having been taught by Eve the secrets of wine making. Gimel was also the
creator of the wine maker’s guild. He opposed the election of Cain to the head of
the Adamic family and supported Seth instead.
Azrael’s Commentary - Abel
[...] At about the age of forty, Abel married a beautiful woman named Yoshibel and
together they had a son which they named Gimel. It was at the marriage of Abel and
Yoshibel that Cain bitterly decided to kill his brother Abel as a way to get back
at his father Adam (Beginnings 3:1-7).
Azrael’s Commentary - Adamic Council
[...] Cain claimed that he should be the new head of the Adaam by right of being
the first born. But Gimel quickly opposed the claim, reminding the Adaam that Cain
had murdered his father Abel, and that as a consequence of such an act, Adam had
rightly appointed Seth in place of Cain. (AZC - Adamic Council)
For there lived in the city of peace, a woman whose name was Hazar-Gabatha of the
house of Gimel, the son of Abel and Yoshibel.
