Enoch, UT
Enoch (ancestor of Noah)

Enoch (; ; ʼIdrīs) is a figure in Biblical literature. "In the seventh generation from Adam," he was considered the author of the Book of Enoch and also called Enoch the scribe of judgment. In addition to an appearance in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible, Enoch is the subject of many Jewish and Christian writings.

Enoch was the son of Jared , the father of Methuselah, and the great-grandfather of Noah. At 65 years old, he begot Mathusal [Methuselah]; Regim and Gaidad are also mentioned as his sons.

The Bible says that Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God. The text reads that Enoch "walked with God: and he was no more; for God took him" , which can be understood as God taking Enoch to heaven while still alive, body and soul.

This Enoch is not to be confused with Cain's son Enoch . The Christian New Testament has three references to Enoch from the lineage of Seth (Luke 3:37, Hebrews 11:5, Jude 1:14–15).


Enoch may refer to:

Enoch (son of Cain)

According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch (; Ḥanōḵ) was a son of Cain, grandson of Adam, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife (and sister) became pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch. The city Cain founded in the Land of Nod was named after his son (Genesis 4:17). According to Jubilees 4:9, Enoch's mother/aunt was named Awan.

This Enoch is not to be confused with Noah's ancestor Enoch. This Enoch wages war against God, just as his father Cain.
