|Antediluvian Chronology |
Everything dates from the creation of Adam. Beyond him all is
Wrapped in dark and impenetrable mystery. In order to determine the
Length of time from Adam's creation to the flood we have only to add
The ages of the antediluvian patriarchs--Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan,
Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah--at the births of
Their first sons, and add to this the age of Shem at the flood, and we
Find that it was 1656 years (Genesis 5:3-32; Genesis 7:6).
