Genesis 5: Did anyone hear what God said?
1This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made He him.
2Male and female created He them, and blessed them and called their name Adam in the day when they were created.
No, he didn’t call them ‘Adam’, he called them ‘Adam and Eve’.
3And Adam lived a hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and called his name Seth.
Begot? I thought it was begat? Pedantic? Yes, but still. Make up your minds.
4And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years; and he begot sons and daughters.
5And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years; and he died.
6And Seth lived a hundred and five years, and begot Enosh.
7And Seth lived after he begot Enosh eight hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.
I give up.
8And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years; and he died.
9And Enosh lived ninety years, and begot Cainan.
10And Enosh lived after he begot Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begot sons and daughters.
11And all the days of Enosh were nine hundred and five years; and he died.
12And Cainan lived seventy years, and begot Mahalaleel.
13And Cainan lived after he begot Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begot sons and daughters.
14And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years; and he died.
15And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begot Jared.
16And Mahalaleel lived after he begot Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begot sons and daughters.
17And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years; and he died.
18And Jared lived a hundred sixty and two years, and he begot Enoch.
19And Jared lived after he begot Enoch eight hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
20And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years; and he died.
21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begot Methuselah.
22And Enoch walked with God after he begot Methuselah three hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.
23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years.
24And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
25And Methuselah lived a hundred eighty and seven years, and begot Lamech.
26And Methuselah lived after he begot Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begot sons and daughters.
27And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years; and he died.
28And Lamech lived a hundred eighty and two years, and begot a son.
29And he called his name Noah, saying, “This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.”
This ‘same‘? I expect that’s a typo and should have been ‘name‘. How does a name comfort?
30And Lamech lived after he begot Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begot sons and daughters.
31And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years; and he died.
32And Noah was five hundred years old; and Noah begot Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Why not tell us who the women/girls were and how long they lived? Or were the guys the only ones doing the begatting? This rubbish is all too misogynistic for my tastes.
