Genesis Chapter 5 Summary

Genesis chapter 5 is a chapter centered on the genealogy and generations of the family of mankind from Adam and one of his many sons, Seth. It begins with, “These are the generations of Adam,” and this chapter list his lineage all the way to brother Noah and his three sons.

We will spare the details of the genealogy-blockchain. It began with Adam having Seth, Seth having Enos, Enos having Cainan, Cainan having Mahalaleel, and on and on and on. It is routine.

In this generation, men lived very long lives, up to 969 years for the longest (Methuselah), however not one of them broke birthday 1,000. One of the biggest parts of the chapter is the eye raiser of the patriarch Enoch, who the scripture says was taken by God because he walked with God.

Everyone else was written to have died. It is possible for Enoch to live today because of this scripture, as God perhaps was showing the world what Adam could have done, transitioned into eternal life without the necessity of death.

A final note on this chapter is that all of these patriarchs had sons (plural) and daughters (plural). The son mentioned in the lineage is just one of many sons and daughters. They kept God’s command to be fruitful and multiply. The chapter ends with the introduction of Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
