5 1-2 God created men and women to be like himself. He gave them his blessing and called them human beings. This is a list of the descendants of Adam, the first man:
3-4 When Adam was one hundred thirty, he had a son who was just like him, and he named him Seth. Adam had more children 5 and died at the age of nine hundred thirty.
6 When Seth was one hundred five, he had a son named Enosh. 7 Seth had more children 8 and died at the age of nine hundred twelve.
9 When Enosh was ninety, he had a son named Kenan. 10 Enosh had more children 11 and died at the age of nine hundred five.
12 When Kenan was seventy, he had a son named Mahalalel. 13 Kenan had more children 14 and died at the age of nine hundred ten.
15 When Mahalalel was sixty-five, he had a son named Jared. 16 Mahalalel had more children 17 and died at the age of eight hundred ninety-five.
18 When Jared was one hundred sixty-two, he had a son named Enoch. 19 Jared had more children 20 and died at the age of nine hundred sixty-two.
21 When Enoch was sixty-five, he had a son named Methuselah, 22 and during the next three hundred years he had more children. Enoch truly loved God, 23-24 and God took him away at the age of three hundred sixty-five.
25 When Methuselah was one hundred eighty-seven, he had a son named Lamech. 26 Methuselah had more children 27 and died at the age of nine hundred sixty-nine.
28 When Lamech was one hundred eighty-two, he had a son. 29 Lamech said, “I’ll name him Noah because he will give us comfort,[a] as we struggle hard to make a living on this land that the Lord has put under a curse.” 30 Lamech had more children 31 and died at the age of seven hundred seventy-seven.
32 After Noah was five hundred years old, he had three sons and named them Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
