Did Adam And Noah Know Each Other?

This is just a fun fact for those of you who are interested. But it is also interesting to know that Adam was still alive when Noah's father was.  They all had direct contact with the man (Adam) who personally walked and talked with God.

37. First, Adam was 130 years old when Seth was 
born (Gen 5:3). And the days of Adam, after he had 
begotten Seth, were 800 years, making him 930 
years old when he died (5:4-5). Seth was 105 when Enos was born (5:6); Enos was 90 when Cainan 
was born (5:9); Cainan was 70 when Mahalaleel 
was born (5:12); Mahalaleel was 65 when Jared 
was born (5:15); Jared was 162 when Enoch was 
born (5:18); Enoch was 65 when Methuselah was 
born (5:21); Methuselah was 187 when Lamech 
was born (5:25); Lamech was 182 when Noah was 
born (5:28).

38. From this account it appears that Lamech, the 
eighth 3 from Adam, and the father of Noah, was 
56 years old when Adam died; Methuselah, 243; 
Enoch, 308; Jared, 470; Mahalaleel, 535; Cainan, 
605; Enos, 695; and Seth, 800.

39. So Lamech the father of Noah, Methuselah, 
Enoch, Jared, Mahalaleel, Cainan, Enos, Seth, and 
Adam, were all living at the same time, and, beyond 
all controversy, were all preachers of righteousness.

40. Moses further informs us that Seth lived 807 
years after he begat Enos, making him 912 years 
old at his death (Gen 5:7-8). And Enos lived 815 
years after he begat Cainan, making him 905 years 
old when he died (5:10-11). And Cainan lived 840 
years after he begat Mahalaleel, making him 910 
years old at his death (5:13-14). And Mahalaleel 
lived 830 years after he begat Jared, making him 
895 years old when he died (5:16-17). And Jared 
lived 800 years after he begat Enoch, making him 
962 years old at his death (5:19-20). And Enoch 
walked with God 300 years after he begat 
Methuselah, making him 365 years old when he 
was translated (5:22-23). And Methuselah lived 782 
years after he begat Lamech, making him 969 years 
old when he died (5:26-27). Lamech lived 595 
years after he begat Noah, making him 777 years 
old when he died (5:30-31).

41. Agreeable to this account, Adam died in the 
930th year of the world; Enoch was translated in 
the 987th; Seth died in the 1042nd; Enos in the 
1140th; Cainan in the 1235th; Mahalaleel in the 
1290th; Jared in the 1422nd; Lamech in the 
1651st; and Methuselah in the 1656th, it being the 
same year in which the flood came.

42. So Noah was 84 years old when Enos died, 179 
4 when Cainan died, 234 when Mahalaleel died, 
366 when Jared died, 595 when Lamech died, and 
600 when Methuselah died.

43. We can see from this that Enos, Cainan, 
Mahalaleel, Jared, Methuselah, Lamech, and Noah, 
all lived on the earth at the same time, and that 
Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Methuselah, and 
Lamech, were all acquainted with both Adam and

  1. Wow Becky Jane,
    All those numbers just boggle my mind. I think it is cool that Adam and Noah knew each other.!/CandidaJourney/status/161404521552158720

  2. I have never done the math before. It seems wild to think that they all knew each other, but I guess it makes sense.

  3. An interesting theory, and I think it could have been. All the begats have places they will go and there's a reason for them. Like the Christmas story I posted where Mary and Joseph's inn was actually the house of King David, making being from the house of David as literal as you can get. I will have to ask Phil today what he thinks about Adam and Noah!

  4. I love to ponder things like this and I loved the post.

  5. Hi Becky,

    WOW! I'm only 41. Think of how many more children I could have. My husband might think otherwise.

    Love ya,


  6. Awesome! I once sat down and figured this all out myself. I love it! It still boggles my mind how long they used to live - nearly an entire millennium. Think being alive through all the changes in the last 1000 years!

  7. Wow. incredible. Just thinking that far is mind boggling.

  8. Ppl where so much closer to perfection then we are today ,,there bodies where so near perfection ,,we are soooooo far removed from that ,,its no wonder we don't make it to 100 lol..nor do I want to .
