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.

1 THIS IS the book (the written record, the history) of the generations of the offspring of Adam. When God created man, He made him in the likeness of God.
2 He created them male and female and blessed them and named them [both] Adam [Man] at the time they were created.
3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he had a son in his own likeness, after his image; and he named him Seth.
4 After he had Seth, Adam lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters.
5 So altogether Adam lived 930 years, and he died.
6 When Seth was 105 years old, Enosh was born.
7 Seth lived after the birth of Enosh 807 years and had other sons and daughters.
8 So Seth lived 912 years, and he died.
9 When Enosh was 90 years old, Kenan was born to him.
10 Enosh lived after the birth of Kenan 815 years and had other sons and daughters.
11 So Enosh lived 905 years, and he died.
12 When Kenan was 70 years old, Mahalalel was born.
13 Kenan lived after the birth of Mahalalel 840 years and had other sons and daughters.
14 So Kenan lived 910 years, and he died.
15 When Mahalalel was 65 years old, Jared was born.
16 Mahalalel lived after the birth of Jared 830 years and had other sons and daughters.
17 So Mahalalel lived 895 years, and he died.
18 When Jared was 162 years old, Enoch was born.
19 Jared lived after the birth of Enoch 800 years and had other sons and daughters.
20 So Jared lived 962 years, and he died.
21 When Enoch was 65 years old, Methuselah was born.
22 Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God after the birth of Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters.
23 So all the days of Enoch were 365 years.
24 And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him]. [Heb. 11:5.]
25 When Methuselah was 187 years old, Lamech was born to him.
26 Methuselah lived after the birth of Lamech 782 years and had other sons and daughters.
27 So Methuselah lived 969 years, and he died.
28 When Lamech was 182 years old, a son was born.
29 He named him Noah, saying, This one shall bring us relief and comfort from our work and the [grievous] toil of our hands due to the ground being cursed by the Lord.
30 Lamech lived after the birth of Noah 595 years and had other sons and daughters.
31 So all the days of Lamech were 777 years, and he died.
32 After Noah was 500 years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
