Genesis 5

1This is the book of Adam's generations. In the day that God#GodHebrew: Elohim created man, in the likeness of God#GodHebrew: Elohim made he him. 2Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. 3And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his likeness, after his image, and called his name Seth. 4And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years; and he begot sons and daughters. 5And all the days of Adam that he lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
6And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begot Enosh. 7And Seth lived after he had begotten Enosh eight hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters. 8And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died. 9And Enosh lived ninety years, and begot Cainan. 10And Enosh lived after he had begotten Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begot sons and daughters. 11And all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years; and he died. 12And Cainan lived seventy years, and begot Mahalaleel. 13And Cainan lived after he had begotten Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begot sons and daughters. 14And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years; and he died. 15And Mahalaleel lived sixty-five years, and begot Jared. 16And Mahalaleel lived after he had begotten Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters. 17And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred and ninety-five years; and he died. 18And Jared lived a hundred and sixty-two years, and begot Enoch. 19And Jared lived after he had begotten Enoch eight hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. 20And all the days of Jared were nine hundred and sixty-two years; and he died.
21And Enoch lived sixty-five years, and begot Methushelah. 22And Enoch walked with God#GodHebrew: Elohim after he had begotten Methushelah three hundred years, and begot sons and daughters. 23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24And Enoch walked with God#GodHebrew: Elohim and he was not, for God#GodHebrew: Elohim took him.

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.
