Descendants of Adam

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 and died at the age of nine hundred thirty.

When Seth was one hundred five, he had a son named Enosh. Seth had more children and died at the age of nine hundred twelve.

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.
