Below. e. My laws, Q : éúå÷ç], My commandments, and My covenantal festivals (Q, col. : has éãòåî éúéøá, not a biblical phrase): Jubilees may be alluding to the covenants God established with Israel’s ancestors and which—according to Jubilees—were the basis for such later festivals as Weeks and Booths. The sins that are listed next, making high places (úåîá) and [sacred] groves (úåøùà) are stereotypical sins mentioned in Scripture (Deut :, :); it seems unlikely that these were a real problem in Jubilees’ day.

It may be, therefore, that the additional material in later sources was added because the failure to mention them seemed to these sources a striking omission in Jubilees. Note that Midrash Tadshe, a minor midrashic composition that apparently borrowed heavily from Jubilees, does make this connection, asserting that the twenty-two things created in the first week “correspond to the  letters of the alphabet and the generations from Adam until the arrival of Jacob” (“Midrash Tadshe” in Bet ha-Midrasch vol.
