Translation of Genesis 5:21

Enoch was 65 years and gave birth to Methuselah.

Comments

Enoch is highly honored, but giving the son the name Methuselah ("man of the dart") seems to show that Enoch was focused on practical issues. Hunting with a dart seem to occupy his mind.

Enoch had a wife. When leaving this world, he left his wife too (if she was yet alive).
