Genesis Chapter FIVE…
This chapter provides a record of the descendants of Adam. One of the remarkable things to observe in this record is their ages at death. They lived exceptionally long lives. We are introduced here to Enoch, who “walked with God,” and who is also mentioned in Luke’s account of the genealogy of Christ and also in Hebrews and Jude. Enoch is one of only two men in the Bible of whom it is said he “walked with God.” The other is found in Genesis 6:9. Verse 24 is a startling revelation. Enoch was exempted by God from the statement of Hebrews 9:27, in that GOD TOOK HIM—he did not die. This chapter tells us about the man who lived longer on earth than any other man, Methuselah (v. 27). Noah and his sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth are also in the listing (v. 32).
