Genesis 5: 25-32

Chapter 5

When Methuselah was one hundred and eighty-seven years old, he became the father of Lamech.
Methuselah lived seven hundred and eighty-two years after the birth of Lamech, and he had other sons and daughters.
The whole lifetime of Methuselah was nine hundred and sixty-nine years; then he died.
When Lamech was one hundred and eighty-two years old, he begot a son
3 and named him Noah, saying, "Out of the very ground that the LORD has put under a curse, this one shall bring us relief from our work and the toil of our hands."
Lamech lived five hundred and ninety-five years after the birth of Noah, and he had other sons and daughters.
The whole lifetime of Lamech was seven hundred and seventy-seven years; then he died.
When Noah was five hundred years old, he became the father of Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
Reflection:  Again the age of people is astonishing to me.  God let Lamech know at Noah's creation that this person, this soul would bring relief.  We all see hope in our children.  We see God in their eyes.  I wonder if Lamech could see this in Noah.  We have free will and yet God has a plan for each of us.  How great the world could be if we all followed that plan, if we were all open to His design.
