28When Lamech was one hundred and eighty-two, he had a son. 29Lamech said, “I'll name him Noah because he will give us comfort,#5.29 Noah…comfort: In Hebrew “Noah” sounds like “comfort”. as we struggle hard to make a living on this land that the LORD has put under a curse.” 30Lamech had more children 31and died at the age of seven hundred and seventy-seven.
32After Noah was five hundred years old, he had three sons and named them Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
