Jubilees is an exegetical composition composed in the land of Israel in the 2nd century BCE that reworks the book of Genesis and the first section of Exodus. Presented as an account given to Moses by the Angel of the Presence on Mount Sinai, it frames the events between the creation and the exodus in terms of units of weeks (seven years) and jubilees (forty-nine years).
