Gospel in Gen 5

Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainain, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah

When we assemble the meanings of the names together in birth order, we find a message unfolding
before us… just as it must have for those who witnessed the generations so long ago:

MANKIND / IS APPOINTED TO / A FEEBLE, FRAIL, MORTALITY / IN A FIXED DWELLING PLACE.
/ GOD WHO IS PRAISED / COMES DOWN / TO INSTRUCT / AS A MAN SENT FORTH / TO BE
BEATEN, SMITTEN AND TORTURED / BRINGING REST, A QUIET PEACE.
