Book of Genealogies
1This is the Book of the Genealogies of Adam: When God created Adam, in the likeness of God He made him.
2Male and female He created them, and He blessed them and called their name “Adam” when He created them.
3Adam lived 130 years, then fathered a son in his likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.
4Then the days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years, and He fathered other sons and daughters.
5So all Adam’s days that he lived were 930 years, and then he died.
6Seth lived 105 years, then fathered Enosh.
7Seth lived 807 years after he fathered Enosh, and he fathered sons and daughters.
8So all Seth’s days were 912 years, and then he died.
9Enosh lived 90 years, then fathered Kenan.
10Enosh lived 815 years after he fathered Kenan, and he fathered sons and daughters.
11So all of Enosh’s days were 905 years, and then he died.
12Kenan lived 70 years, then fathered Mahalalel.
13Kenan lived 840 years after he fathered Mahalalel, he fathered sons and daughters.
14So all of Kenan’s days were 910 years, and then he died.
15Mahalalel lived 65 years, then fathered Jared.
16Mahalalel lived 830 years after he fathered Jared, and he fathered sons and daughters.
17So all of Mahalalel’s days were 895 years, and then he died.
18Jared lived 162 years, then fathered Enoch.
19Jared lived 800 years after he fathered Enoch, and he fathered sons and daughters.
20So all of Jared’s days were 962 years, and then he died.
21Enoch lived 65 years, then fathered Methuselah.
22Now Enoch walked with God continually for 300 years after he fathered Methuselah, and he fathered sons and daughters.
23So all of Enoch’s days were 365 years.
24And Enoch continually walked with God—then he was not there, because God took him.
25Methuselah lived 187 years and fathered Lamech.
26And Methuselah lived 782 years after he fathered Lamech, and he fathered other sons and daughters.
27So all of Methuselah’s days were 969 years, and then he died.
28Lamech lived 182 years and he fathered a son.
29And he named him Noah saying, “This one will comfort us from our work and from the pain of our hands because of the ground which Adonai cursed.”
30Lamech lived 595 years after he fathered Noah, and he fathered sons and daughters.
31So all of Lamech’s days were 777 years, and then he died.
32And Noah was 500 years old when he fathered Shem, Ham and Japheth.
