Genesis Chapter 5

Genesis 5:1
5:1 This [is] the book of the generations of Adam. In the day
    that God created man, in the {a} likeness of God made he
    him;

    (a) Read Genesis 1:26.

Genesis 5:2
5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and
    called their name {b} Adam, in the day when they were
    created.

    (b) By giving them both one name, he notes the inseparable
        conjunction of man and wife.

Genesis 5:3
5:3 And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat [a
    son] in his own {c} likeness, after his image; and called
    his name Seth:

    (c) As well, concerning his creation, as his corruption.

Genesis 5:6
5:6 And {d} Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat
    Enos:

    (d) He proves Adam's generation by those who came from Seth,
        to show the true Church, and also what care God had over
        the same from the beginning, in that he continued his
        graces toward it by a continual succession.

Genesis 5:8
5:8 And all the days of Seth were {e} nine hundred and twelve
    years: and he died.

    (e) The main reason for long life in the first age, was the
        multiplication of mankind, that according to God's
        commandment at the beginning the world might be filled
        with people, who would universally praise him.

Genesis 5:22
5:22 And Enoch {f} walked with God after he begat Methuselah
     three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

     (f) That is, he led an upright and godly life.

Genesis 5:24
5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for {g} God
     took him.

     (g) To show that there was a better life prepared and to be
         a testimony of the immortality of souls and bodies. To
         inquire where he went is mere curiosity.

Genesis 5:29
5:29 And he called his name Noah, saying, This [same] shall {h}
     comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands,
     because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.

     (h) Lamech had respect for the promise, Genesis 3:15, and
         desired to see the deliverer who would be sent and yet
         saw but a figure of it. He spoke this by the spirit of
         prophecy because Noah delivered the Church and
         preserved it by his obedience.
