Descendants of Adam
1This is the book (the written record, the history) of the generations of [the descendants of] Adam. When God created man, He made him in the likeness of God [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]. 2He created them male and female, and blessed them and named them #Lit Adam.Mankind at the time they were created.
3When Adam had lived a hundred and thirty years, he #Lit begot, and so throughout chapter.became the father of a son in his own likeness, according to his image, and named him Seth. 4After he became the father of Seth, Adam lived eight hundred years and had other sons and daughters. 5So Adam lived nine hundred and thirty years in all, and he died.
6When Seth was a hundred and five years old, he became the father of Enosh. 7Seth lived eight hundred and seven years after the birth of Enosh, and he had other sons and daughters. 8So Seth lived nine hundred and twelve years, and he died.
9When Enosh was ninety years old, he became the father of Kenan. 10Enosh lived eight hundred and fifteen years after the birth of Kenan and had other sons and daughters. 11So Enosh lived nine hundred and five years, and he died.
12When Kenan was seventy years old, he became the father of Mahalalel. 13Kenan lived eight hundred and forty years after the birth of Mahalalel and had other sons and daughters. 14So Kenan lived nine hundred and ten years, and he died.
15When Mahalalel was sixty-five years old, he became the father of Jared. 16Mahalalel lived eight hundred and thirty years after the birth of Jared and had other sons and daughters. 17So Mahalalel lived eight hundred and ninety-five years, and he died.
18When Jared was a hundred and sixty-two years old, he became the father of Enoch. 19Jared lived eight hundred years after the birth of Enoch and had other sons and daughters. 20So Jared lived nine hundred and sixty-two years, and he died.
21When Enoch was sixty-five years old, he became the father of Methuselah. 22Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God three hundred years after the birth of Methuselah and had other sons and daughters. 23So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24And [in reverent fear and obedience] Enoch walked with God; and he was not [found among men], because God took him [away to be home with Him].
25When Methuselah was a hundred and eighty-seven years old, he became the father of Lamech. 26Methuselah lived seven hundred and eighty-two years after the birth of Lamech and had other sons and daughters. 27So Methuselah lived nine hundred and sixty-nine years, and he died.
28When Lamech was a hundred and eighty-two years old, he became the father of a son. 29He named him Noah, saying, “This one shall bring us rest and comfort from our work and from the [dreadful] toil of our hands because of the ground which the Lord cursed.” 30Lamech lived five hundred and ninety-five years after the birth of Noah and had other sons and daughters. 31So all the days of Lamech were seven hundred and seventy-seven years, and he died.
32After Noah was five hundred years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

The people born into Adam’s family
1This is the story about Adam’s family. You see, when God made people, he made them to be like himself. 2And he made them men and women, and he called them human beings, and he was good to them.#Genesis 1:27-28; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6
3Adam lived a long time. He was 130 years old when he had his son called Seth. He was a human being, just like Adam, his father. 4After Seth was born, Adam lived for another 800 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 5He died when he was 930 years old.
6Seth lived a long time too. He was 105 years old when he had a son called Enosh. 7Then Seth lived for another 807 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 8He died when he was 912 years old.
9Enosh lived a long time too. He was 90 years old when he had a son called Kenan. 10Then Enosh lived for another 815 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 11He died when he was 905 years old.
12Kenan lived a long time too. He was 70 years old when he had a son called Mahalalel. 13Then Kenan lived for another 840 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 14He died when he was 910 years old.
15Mahalalel lived a long time too. He was 65 years old when he had a son called Jared. 16Then Mahalalel lived for another 830 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 17He died when he was 895 years old.
18Jared lived a long time too. He was 162 years old when he had a son called Enok. 19Then Jared lived for another 800 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 20He died when he was 962 years old.
21Enok lived a long time too. He was 65 years old when he had a son called Methuselah. 22-24Then Enok lived for another 300 years after Methuselah was born, and he had more sons and daughters.
Enok was always God’s friend, and he spent a lot of time with God. One day, when he was 365 years old, he wasn’t here on the earth any more. Nobody could find him anywhere. You see, he didn’t die, but God took him straight up to heaven.#Hebrews 11:5; Jude 14
25Methuselah lived a long time too. He was 187 years old when he had a son called Lamek. 26Then Methuselah lived for another 782 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 27He died when he was 969 years old.
28Lamek lived a long time too. He was 182 years old when he had a son. 29He named his son Noah. That name means help people be happy. Lamek said, “God cursed the ground, so we have to work really hard to dig the ground, but Noah will help us be happy, even though we have to work really hard.” 30Then Lamek lived for another 595 years, and he had more sons and daughters. 31He died when he was 777 years old.
32Noah lived a long time too. After he was 500 years old, he had 3 sons. They were called Shem, and Ham, and Jafeth.
