Genesis 5

5
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.

In the yom that barah Elohim Adam, in the demut Elohim He made him; 2Zakhar and nekevah He created them; and blessed them, and called the shem of them "Adam," in the yom when they were created. 3And Adam lived a hundred and thirty shanah and fathered in his own demut and after his tzelem (image) and called shmo Shet: 4And the days of Adam after he had fathered Shet were shemoneh me'ot shanah; and he fathered banim and banot: 5And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty shanah: and he died. 6And Shet lived a hundred and five shanah, and fathered Enosh; 7And Shet lived after he fathered Enosh eight hundred and seven shanah, and fathered banim and banot: 8And all the days of Shet were nine hundred and twelve shanah; and he died. 9And Enosh lived ninety shanah, and fathered Kenan; 10And Enosh lived after he fathered Kenan eight hundred and fifteen shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 11And all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five shanim; and he died. 12And Kenan lived seventy shanah and fathered Mahalal'el; 13And Kenan lived after he fathered Mahalal'el eight hundred and forty shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 14And all the days of Kenan were nine hundred and ten shanim; and he died. 15And Mahalal'el lived sixty and five shanah, and fathered Yered; 16And Mahalal'el lived after he fathered Yered eight hundred and thirty shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 17And all the days of Mahalal'el were eight hundred ninety and five shanah; and he died. 18And Yered lived a hundred sixty and two shanah, and he fathered Chanoch (Enoch): 19And Yered lived after he fathered Chanoch (Enoch) eight hundred shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 20And all the days of Yered were nine hundred sixty and two shanah; and he died. 21And Chanoch lived sixty and five shanah, and fathered Metushelach; 22And Chanoch walked with HaElohim after he fathered Metushelach three hundred shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 23And all the days of Chanoch were three hundred sixty and five shanah; 24And Chanoch walked with HaElohim; and he was not; for Elohim took him. 25And Metushelach lived a hundred eighty and seven shanah, and fathered Lamech. 26And Metushelach lived after he fathered Lamech seven hundred eighty and two shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 27And all the days of Metushelach were nine hundred sixty and nine shanah; and he died. 28And Lamech lived a hundred eighty and two shanah and fathered ben; 29And he called shmo Noach, saying, Zeh yenachamenu (this shall comfort us) in our work and toil of our hands, because of the adamah which Hashem hath cursed. 30And Lamech lived after he fathered Noach five hundred ninety and five shanah, and fathered banim and banot; 31And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven shanah; and he died. 32And Noach was five hundred years old; and Noach fathered Shem, Cham, and Yephet.
