Jared is the sixth generation and means descent. It is pronounced Yared. When Jared had lived 162 years, he became the father of Enoch. And after he became the father of Enoch, Jared lived 800 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Jared lived 962 years, and then he died. They all died. This has been a walk through the family graveyard. Seth died, then Enosh died, then Kenan died, then Mahalalel died, then Jared died, too. This is God’s answer to Satan’s lie when he said: You will not surely die (3:4). But then a remarkable thing happens. In the midst of all this death, one of their own was removed from the earth without dying. Enoch would be the exception (Second Kings 2:1-12; Hebrews 11:5).
