PART V: “Primpordial Family History: From Adam to Noah

Following is a book listing primordial history, starting with Adam. In His formation of human-kind, God did so by instilling in humanity, both man and woman, a Godly capacity. It was on that wondrous day that God was first, with words of approbation, to call this final work of formation – His crowning glory, His magnum opus, His most outstanding work – “human.”

To Mathusalah was born a brood of offspring, both boys and girls. Mathusalah was to pass away as a prodigiously old man of 962 (Amazing! Astonishing! Mind-blowing! Such a long run… a gold standard… without match!)

As a man of 182, a son was born to Lamach. Calling his son Noah (that is to say, “Comfort” or “Consolation”), Lamach said: “This child will bring us soothing comfort from our work, our manual labor – and from our God-awful, ignominious, and worldly machinations!” Following Noah’s birth, Lamach would mark an additional 595 birthdays. To Lamach was born a brood of offspring, both boys and girls.

A trio of sons – Shaym, Ham, and Jafith – was born to Noah… by that point an old man of 500.
