Genesis 5: The plan of salvation as revealed through Adam’s line from Adam to Noah…
Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, Jared, Enoch, Methuselah, Lamech, Noah.
Adam=Red, ruddy, man
Seth = “compensation”, substituted
Enos=man in general (singly or collectively)
Cainan="possession", nest (figuratively chamber or dwelling)
Mahalaleel=praise of God
Enoch= “dedicated”, initiated
Methuselah=man of a dart
Lamech= “powerful”, possibly means "to make low" in Hebrew
Noah = “rest”
A man was the compensation, substitution for (sinful) man in general—His possession (redeemed by His blood)—(He was) the praise of God, He made His descent from heavenly glory to the redemptive task he was dedicated and initiated the final events in the plan of salvation as the man of dart, making Himself low in human flesh, entering into a powerful rest, allowing all to enter His rest today.
