In Gen. 5:1-32, tells of the Ages of Adam thru Noah. There were a lot of 800 and 900 years mentioned in these verses. But, a lot of the years overlapped. An example of this, would be Adam, living 930 years. But, he was only 687 years old, when Me-thu'-se-lah was born. There were six others, between Adam, and Me-thu'-se-lah, that used apart of Adams, 930 years. Me-thu'-se-lah, used 243 of Adams years, on the way to HIS 969 years. At the time of the FLOOD, Noah/No'-e, was 600 years old. None of the others were still alive. Noah's father La'-mech, the last of the 900 year old group. Lived 595 more years, after Noahs birth, and died 5 years, before the flood. I tell of the years, mainly for knowledge. To explain all of the many 900 years, we read of was CONDENSED. It was not 900 x 6 = 5,400 years, or 900 x 4 =3,600years. It was only 1,656 years. " THE TRUTH AS I SEE IT "
