Genesis 5

The Family of Adam
1This is the book of the #Gen. 2:4; 6:9; 1 Chr. 1:1; Matt. 1:1genealogy of Adam. In the day that God created man, He made him in #Gen. 1:26; 9:6; (Eph. 4:24; Col. 3:10)the likeness of God. 2He created them #Gen. 1:27; Deut. 4:32; Matt. 19:4; Mark 10:6male and female, and #Gen. 1:28; 9:1blessed them and called them Mankind in the day they were created. 3And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son #1 Cor. 15:48, 49in his own likeness, after his image, and named him #Gen. 4:25Seth. 4After he begot Seth, #1 Chr. 1:1–4; Luke 3:36–38the days of Adam were eight hundred years; #Gen. 1:28; 4:25and he had sons and daughters. 5So all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; #Gen. 2:17; 3:19; 6:17; (Heb. 9:27)and he died.
6Seth lived one hundred and five years, and begot Enosh. 7After he begot #Gen. 4:26Enosh, Seth lived eight hundred and seven years, and had sons and daughters. 8So all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.
9Enosh lived ninety years, and begot Cainan. 10After he begot Cainan, Enosh lived eight hundred and fifteen years, and had sons and daughters. 11So all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years; and he died.
12Cainan lived seventy years, and begot Mahalalel. 13After he begot Mahalalel, Cainan lived eight hundred and forty years, and had sons and daughters. 14So all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years; and he died.
15Mahalalel lived sixty-five years, and begot Jared. 16After he begot Jared, Mahalalel lived eight hundred and thirty years, and had sons and daughters. 17So all the days of Mahalalel were eight hundred and ninety-five years; and he died.
18Jared lived one hundred and sixty-two years, and begot #Jude 14, 15Enoch. 19After he begot Enoch, Jared lived eight hundred years, and had sons and daughters. 20So all the days of Jared were nine hundred and sixty-two years; and he died.
21Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methuselah. 22After he begot Methuselah, Enoch #Gen. 6:9; 17:1; 24:40; 48:15; 2 Kin. 20:3; Ps. 16:8; (Mic. 6:8); Mal. 2:6; 1 Thess. 2:12; (Heb. 11:39)walked with God three hundred years, and had sons and daughters. 23So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24And #2 Kin. 2:11; Jude 14Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God #2 Kin. 2:10; Ps. 49:15; 73:24; Heb. 11:5took him.
25Methuselah lived one hundred and eighty-seven years, and begot Lamech. 26After he begot Lamech, Methuselah lived seven hundred and eighty-two years, and had sons and daughters. 27So all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred and sixty-nine years; and he died.
28Lamech lived one hundred and eighty-two years, and had a son. 29And he called his name #Luke 3:36; Heb. 11:7; 1 Pet. 3:20Noah, saying, “This one will comfort us concerning our work and the toil of our hands, because of the ground #Gen. 3:17–19; 4:11which the Lord has cursed.” 30After he begot Noah, Lamech lived five hundred and ninety-five years, and had sons and daughters. 31So all the days of Lamech were seven hundred and seventy-seven years; and he died.
32And Noah was five hundred years old, and Noah begot #Gen. 6:10; 7:13Shem, Ham, #Gen. 10:21and Japheth.

1This is the record of Adam's descendants. When God created human beings, he made them to be like him. 2He created them male and female, and blessed them. On the day he created them he called them “human.”#5:2. “Human”: literally, “Adam,” or “man.”
3When Adam was 130, he had a son who was like him, made in his image; and he named him Seth. 4Adam lived another 800 years after Seth was born, and had other sons and daughters. 5Adam lived a total of 930 years, and then he died.
6When Seth was 105, he had Enosh. 7Seth lived another 807 years after Enosh was born, and had other sons and daughters. 8Seth lived a total of 912 years, and then he died.
9When Enosh was 90, he had Kenan. 10Enosh lived another 815 years after Kenan was born, and had other sons and daughters. 11Enosh lived a total of 905 years, and then he died.
12When Kenan was 70, he had Mehalalel. 13Kenan lived another 840 years after Mehalalel was born, and had other sons and daughters. 14Kenan lived a total of 910 years, and then he died. 15When Mahalalel was 65, he had Jared. 16After Jared was born, Mahalalel lived another 830 years and had other sons and daughters. 17Mahalalel lived a total of 895 years, and then he died.
18When Jared was 162, he had Enoch. 19After Enoch was born, Jared lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. 20Jared lived a total of 962 years, and then he died.
21When Enoch was 65, he had Methuselah. 22He had a close relationship with God. After Methuselah was born, Enoch lived another 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23Enoch lived a total of 365 years. 24Enoch had such a close relationship with God that he didn't die,#5:24. “He didn't die”: supplied for clarity. See Hebrews 11:5. he just wasn't there anymore, because God took him.
25When Methuselah was 187, he had Lamech. 26After Lamech was born, Methuselah lived another 782 years and had other sons and daughters. 27Methuselah lived a total of 969 years, and then he died.
28When Lamech was 182, he had a son. 29He named him Noah,#5:29. “Noah”: associated in meaning with “relief,” “rest,” and “comfort.” with the explanation, “He will provide relief for us from all the hard manual labor we need to do in cultivating the ground the Lord has cursed.” 30After Noah was born, Lamech lived another 595 years and had other sons and daughters. 31Lamech lived a total of 777 years, and then he died.
32Noah was 500 before he had Shem, Ham, and Japheth.#5:32. From the internal evidence in Genesis it appears Japheth was the oldest and Ham the youngest. Usually siblings are listed in birth order in the Old Testament, though for example Moses, despite being younger than Aaron, is listed first. Here it appears that Shem is considered to be more important, and so is listed first.
