For Moses to have understood the ancient cuneiform texts passed down to him since Adam and Eve, they must have been in his language named for Heber (a great great grandson of Shem) after the Tower of Babel, before that one language since the day of Adam and Eve. The cuneiform tablets were records of what happened during the lives of those who signed at the bottom (colophon) of the clay tablet, as in “these are the generations of . . . (fill-in the name such as Adam, Noah, and Shem),” in Hebrew the word toledoth meaning generations, as in their respective beginnings, picking up the story where the most recent tablet left off, a continuing record for 2,500 years, Adam to Moses.
