Biography, Facts and
Information about Enoch
The following info
provides a concise biography with facts and information about Enoch:
The eldest son of Cain (Genesis 4:17), who built a city east of Eden
in the land of Nod, and called it "after the name of his son Enoch."
This is the first "city" mentioned in Scripture.
The son of Jared, and father of Methuselah (Genesis 5:21; Luke
3:37). His father was one hundred and sixty-two years old when he
was born. After the birth of Methuselah, Enoch "walked with God
three hundred years" (Genesis 5:22-24), when he was translated
without tasting death. His whole life on earth was three hundred and
sixty-five years. He was the "seventh from Adam" (Jude 1:14), as
distinguished from the son of Cain, the third from Adam. He is
spoken of in the catalogue of Old Testament worthies in the Epistle
to the (Hebrews 11:5). When he was translated, only Adam, so far as
recorded, had as yet died a natural death, and Noah was not yet
born. Mention is made of Enoch's prophesying only in Jude 1:14.
