My first chapter of genealogy! Amazingly, all the names fitted.

Apologies to Methuselah for failing to note his incredible longevity.


Thank you for your work.


Amazing that all the names did fit. Very interesting about Enoch - God took him.....

Amazing length of time to live and have children. Always wondered if they used the same measure of time that we do?


It is so interesting that Methuselah was the son of Enoch, but he lived the longest than any other man! I wonder if he longed to go where his dad was (whom the Lord took).


that is not a summary.....
