Genesis 5:23-25 New English Translation (NET Bible)

23 The entire lifetime of Enoch was 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God, and then he disappeared[a] because God took[b] him away.

25 When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he became the father of Lamech.

Footnotes:

  1. Genesis 5:24 tn The Hebrew construction has the negative particle אֵין (ʾen, “there is not,” “there was not”) with a pronominal suffix, “he was not.” Instead of saying that Enoch died, the text says he no longer was present.
  2. Genesis 5:24 sn The text simply states that God took Enoch. Similar language is used of Elijah’s departure from this world (see 2 Kgs 2:10). The text implies that God overruled death for this man who walked with him.
