When God made men and women, he made them like himself. 2God made male and female people and he called them ‘human’. He blessed them.

6When Seth was 105 years old, he had a son. He called him Enosh. 7After Enosh was born, Seth lived for 807 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 8Seth was 912 years old when he died.

12When Kenan was 70 years old, he had a son. He called him Mahalalel. 13After Mahalalel was born, Kenan lived for 840 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 14Kenan was 910 years old when he died.
15When Mahalalel was 65 years old, he had a son. He called him Jared. 16After Jared was born, Mahalalel lived for 830 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 17Mahalalel was 895 years old when he died.

21When Enoch was 65 years old, he had a son. He called him Methuselah. 22After Methuselah was born, Enoch lived as God wanted for 300 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 23Enoch lived on earth for 365 years. 24Enoch lived to please God all this time, then Enoch was not there any more. God took Enoch to be with him. #5:24 God took Enoch to be with him in heaven. So Enoch did not die like other people die.
25When Methuselah was 187 years old, he had a son. He called him Lamech. #5:25 This is not the same Lamech as the one who killed a young man. See Genesis 4:23. 26After Lamech was born, Methuselah lived for 782 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 27Methuselah was 969 years old when he died.
28When Lamech was 182 years old, he had a son. 29He called his son Noah. Lamech said, ‘He will help us in our difficult work on the land. We have pain when we work on the land to get food. That is because the Lord God cursed the ground.’ 30After Noah was born, Lamech lived for 595 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 31Lamech was 777 years old when he died.
32After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham and Japheth.
