English Standard Version (ESV)


Genesis 5

5:1 This is the book of the generations of Adam. When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died.

When Seth had lived 105 years, he fathered Enosh. Seth lived after he fathered Enosh 807 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Seth were 912 years, and he died.

When Enosh had lived 90 years, he fathered Kenan. 10 Enosh lived after he fathered Kenan 815 years and had other sons and daughters. 11 Thus all the days of Enosh were 905 years, and he died.

12 When Kenan had lived 70 years, he fathered Mahalalel. 13 Kenan lived after he fathered Mahalalel 840 years and had other sons and daughters. 14 Thus all the days of Kenan were 910 years, and he died.

15 When Mahalalel had lived 65 years, he fathered Jared. 16 Mahalalel lived after he fathered Jared 830 years and had other sons and daughters. 17 Thus all the days of Mahalalel were 895 years, and he died.

18 When Jared had lived 162 years he fathered Enoch. 19 Jared lived after he fathered Enoch 800 years and had other sons and daughters. 20 Thus all the days of Jared were 962 years, and he died.

21 When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. 22 Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. 23 Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. 24 Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.

25 When Methuselah had lived 187 years, he fathered Lamech. 26 Methuselah lived after he fathered Lamech 782 years and had other sons and daughters. 27 Thus all the days of Methuselah were 969 years, and he died.

28 When Lamech had lived 182 years, he fathered a son 29 and called his name Noah, saying, “Out of the ground that the Lord has cursed this one shall bring us relief from our work and from the painful toil of our hands.” 30 Lamech lived after he fathered Noah 595 years and had other sons and daughters. 31 Thus all the days of Lamech were 777 years, and he died.

32 After Noah was 500 years old, Noah fathered Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

1 John 4:1-6

4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak from the world, and the world listens to them. We are from God. Whoever knows God listens to us; whoever is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.


King James Version (KJV)


Genesis 5:1-32

1This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him;2Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.3And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son in his own likeness, after his image; and called his name Seth:4And the days of Adam after he had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons and daughters:5And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he died.6And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:7And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:8And all the days of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he died.9And Enos lived ninety years, and begat Cainan:10And Enos lived after he begat Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and begat sons and daughters:11And all the days of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he died.12And Cainan lived seventy years, and begat Mahalaleel:13And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters:14And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died.15And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared:16And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters:17And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died.18And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch:19And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:20And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died.21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah:22And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.25And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech:26And Methuselah lived after he begat Lamech seven hundred eighty and two years, and begat sons and daughters:27And all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty and nine years: and he died.28And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:29And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.30And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:31And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.32And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

1 John 4:1-6

1Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.2Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:3And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.4Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.5They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them.6We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.
