About Lamech .

Genesis 5:25,28-31

Wikipedia: Lamech and למך.

Not to confuse this Lamech, with the other one, who is descended from Cain. It was the other Cain who was married to Zilla and Ada.

The lifetimes of this Lamech and Adam overlapped. Lamech had faith in God, and after calling his son’s name Noah (probably meaning “Rest; Consolation”), he uttered the words: “This one will bring us comfort from our work and from the pain of our hands resulting from the ground which Jehovah has cursed.” (Ge 5:29) These words found fulfillment when the curse on the ground was lifted during Noah’s lifetime. (Ge 8:21) Lamech had other sons and daughters. He lived 777 years, dying about five years before the Flood. (Ge 5:30, 31) He is listed in the genealogy of Jesus at Luke 3:36.

From an Israeli scholar comes a new and, in itself, marvelous addition to the story of Noah, taken from the latest of the Dead Sea Scrolls to be unrolled.

The story, reported one of its translators, Soldier-Scholar Yigael Yadin of Jerusalem's Hebrew University, was written on goatskin in Aramaic in "a very pleasant hand."

It tells how Noah's father Lamech (son of Methuselah) was married to his own sister—a custom necessitated in earliest times by the shortage of women.

Lamech, according to the scroll, began to suspect that Baby Noah was not his own child—apparently with good reason. At birth the child "rose up in the hands of the midwife and conversed with the Lord of Righteousness." His body was "white as snow and red as the blooming of the rose," his hair was "white as wool," and when he opened his eyes they lighted the house "like the sun."

Fearing that Noah was really the child of "the Watchers, the Holy Ones or the fallen angels," Lamech spoke to his sister-wife about it in no uncertain terms, and she in turn replied "with great vigor," reminding Lamech of the intimate details of Noah's conception.

Still worried, Lamech asked his father Methuselah (who died at the age of 969) to apply to his grandfather Enoch, who had disappeared at the age of 365 and won his "dwelling-place among the angels. But what immortal Enoch told Lamech about the future architect is unknown.

The rest of the story is missing.

Acerca de Lamech . (Español)

Lamec tenía ciento ochenta y dos años cuando nació un hijo suyo, al que llamó Noé, porque dijo: “El Señor maldijo la tierra, y tenemos que trabajar muy duro para cultivarla; pero este niño nos hará descansar.” Después que Noé nació, Lamec vivió quinientos noventa y cinco años más, y tuvo otros hijos e hijas; así que vivió setecientos setenta y siete años en total. A esa edad murió! . . . . (c. 3138-2361).
