Genesis 5:21-27 (KJV)

21 And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:

22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:

24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech.

26 And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:

27 And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.

Enoch, who stood out in Scripture as a role model (walked with God, God took him away), was Methuselah’s dad. Methuselah lived 969 years, 19 years more than Noah his grandson (Gen. 9:29), and 794 years more than Abraham (Gen. 25:7).
