When God made man, he made him like God. 2God made both male and female. He blessed them. When God made them, he called them ‘man’. #5:2 ‘Man’ in verse 2 means both males and females.

6When Seth was 105 years old, he had a son. He called him Enosh. 7After Seth became the father of Enosh, Seth was alive for 807 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 8Seth was 912 years old when he died.
9When Enosh was 90 years old, he had a son. He called him Kenan. 10Enosh was alive for 815 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 11Enosh was 905 years old when he died.

During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 23Enoch lived on earth for 365 years. 24Enoch did as God wanted for all this time, then Enoch was not there any more. God took Enoch to be with him. #5:24 God took Enoch to be with him in heaven. So Enoch did not die.
25When Methuselah was 187 years old, he had a son. He called him Lamech. #5:25 This is not the same Lamech as the one who killed a young man (See Genesis 4:23).

That is because the Lord God cursed it.’ 30After Noah was born, Lamech was alive for 595 years. During this time, he had other sons and daughters. 31Lamech was 777 years old when he died.
