Genesis 5:23 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 5:23

And all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty
five years.
] A year of years, living as many years as there are days in a year; not half the age of the rest of the patriarchs: our poet F20 calls him one of middle age; though his being taken away in the midst of his days was not a token of divine displeasure, but of favour, as follows; see ( Psalms 55:23 ) .


F20 Milton's Paradise Lost, B. 11. l. 665.
