And he became father to sons and daughters.  So all the days of Adam’s life amounted to 930 years, and then he died.+  Seth lived for 105 years and then became father to E′nosh.+  After becoming father to E′nosh, Seth lived for 807 years. And he became father to sons and daughters.  So all the days of Seth amounted to 912 years, and then he died.  E′nosh lived for 90 years and then became father to Ke′nan. 10  After becoming father to Ke′nan, E′nosh lived for 815 years.

And he became father to sons and daughters. 23  So all the days of E′noch amounted to 365 years. 24  E′noch kept walking with the true God.+ Then he was no more, for God took him.+ 25  Me·thu′se·lah lived for 187 years and then became father to La′mech.+ 26  After becoming father to La′mech, Me·thu′se·lah lived for 782 years.
