Genesis 4.25-> 5

Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, for she said, "God has appointed for me another child instead of Abel, for Cain killed him." To Seth also a son was born, and she named him Enosh.

At that time people began to invoke the name of the Lord.

This is the list of the descendants of Adam:

(When God created humankind, He made them in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them "humankind" when they were created.)

When Adam had lived one hundred thirty years, he became the father of a son in his likeness, according to his image, and named him 'Seth.'

The days of Adam after he became the father of Seth were eight hundred years, and he had other sons and daughters. All the years that Adam lived were nine hundred thirty years, and he died.


Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him.


When Lamech had lived one hundred eighty-two years, he became the father of a son. He named him Noah, saying "Out of the ground that the Lord has cursed, this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the toil of our hands." Lamech lived after the birth of Noah five hundred ninety-five years, and had other sons and daughters. All the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy-seven years, and he died.

After Noah was five hundred seven years old, Noah became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
