43 God further instructs Moses to write down what is first and what is last [better: to write down the earlier things (presumably, the 42 See D. , The Dead Sea Scrolls and Contemporary Culture: Proceedings of the International Conference held at the Israel Museum (July –, ) (Leiden: Brill, ) –; Dimant argues for a separation between Belial and the angel Mastema in Jubilees, viewing the former as a subaltern of the latter.
