When Enosh Had Lived 90 Years,

He Became the Father of Kenan

5: 9-11

Enosh is the third generation and means human frailty. The names in this line are a reminder that human history is not necessarily to be judged by the famous names that everyone knows. The politicians, movie stars, recording artists, or sports stars do not set the bar for the real heroes in society. The best part of human history is never written at all. Family life, patient service, quiet endurance, the training of children, the resistance of temptation; these things are never mentioned by the historian.94 We don’t know much of anything about Enosh but when he had lived 90 years, he became the father of Kenan. And after he became the father of Kenan, Enosh lived 815 years and had other sons and daughters. Altogether, Enosh lived 905 years, and then he died.
