Jewish Mysticism
“R. Simeon said- I have raised my hands in prayer to the One who created the world, for even though the ancients revealed in this verse [Gen. 5- 1] supernal secrets, one must contemplate and look at the secrets of the book of primordial Adam, for from there is derived the hidden book of King Solomon.”
