Abstract This article examines the use and interpretation of a particular earlier tradition in Ben Sira: creation of humanity, focusing on Genesis 1-3 and other materiel currently in Hebrew Bible. The author argues that the allusive handling of these traditions in Ben Sira represents a combination of traditions that is partly a distillation of pre-existing ways of interpretation. Ben Sira thus acts similarly as other innovative scribes of the late Second Temple period in the way he utilizes prior traditions.
