said, "God has given me another son

This is the reason that she named him Seth. This can be made explicit. AT: "explained, 'God has given me another child.'" (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit)


Translators may add a footnote that says "This name sounds like the Hebrew word that means 'has given.'" (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/translate-names)

This can be made explicit. AT: "Seth's wife bore him a son" (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit)

This is the first time people called God by the name Yahweh. This can be made explicit. AT: "to worship God by using the name Yahweh" (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-explicit)
