    Ok, here goes. Bear with me, now.

    The Book of Jasher, Chapter 5

    4 And Jared the son of Mahlallel died in those days, in the three hundred and thirty-sixth year of the life of Noah; and all the days of Jared were nine hundred and sixty-two years, and he died.

    5 And all who followed the Lord died in those days, before they saw the evil which God declared to do upon earth.

    6 And after the lapse of many years, in the four hundred and eightieth year of the life of Noah, when all those men, who followed the Lord had died away from amongst the sons of men, and only Methuselah was then left, God said unto Noah and Methuselah, saying,

    7 Speak ye, and proclaim to the sons of men, saying, Thus saith the Lord, return from your evil ways and forsake your works, and the Lord will repent of the evil that he declared to do to you, so that it shall not come to pass.

    8 For thus saith the Lord, Behold I give you a period of one hundred and twenty years; if you will turn to me and forsake your evil ways, then will I also turn away from the evil which I told you, and it shall not exist, saith the Lord.

    9 And Noah and Methuselah spoke all the words of the Lord to the sons of men, day after day, constantly speaking to them.

    10 But the sons of men would not hearken to them, nor incline their ears to their words, and they were stiffnecked.

    11 And the Lord granted them a period of one hundred and twenty years, saying, If they will return, then will God repent of the evil, so as not to destroy the earth.

    12 Noah the son of Lamech refrained from taking a wife in those days, to beget children, for he said, Surely now God will destroy the earth, wherefore then shall I beget children?

    13 And Noah was a just man, he was perfect in his generation, and the Lord chose him to raise up seed from his seed upon the face of the earth.

    14 And the Lord said unto Noah, Take unto thee a wife, and beget children, for I have seen thee righteous before me in this generation.

    15 And thou shalt raise up seed, and thy children with thee, in the midst of the earth; and Noah went and took a wife, and he chose Naamah the daughter of Enoch, and she was five hundred and eighty years old.

    16 And Noah was four hundred and ninety-eight years old, when he took Naamah for a wife.

    17 And Naamah conceived and bare a son, and he called his name Japheth, saying, God has enlarged me in the earth; and she conceived again and bare a son, and he called his name Shem, saying, God has made me a remnant, to raise up seed in the midst of the earth.

    18 And Noah was five hundred and two years old when Naamah bare Shem, and the boys grew up and went in the ways of the Lord, in all that Methuselah and Noah their father taught them.

    If the above account is true, Naamah would have been what kin to Noah, since she was the daughter of Noah's great grandfather?

    She was also 82 years older than her husband!

    Some scholars think this Naamah is the same as mentioned in Genesis 4:22 - the daughter of that other Lamech, and sister of Tubal-Cain. If so, Noah's wife would have come through Cain's lineage.

    I am so engrossed in the Book of Jasher!

    Just wanted to share.

    The Book of Jasher, Chapter 5

    34 In his five hundred and ninety-fifth year Noah commenced to make the ark, and he made the ark in five years, as the Lord had commanded.

    120 years to warn people to turn away from their wickedness.

    5 years to build the ark.

    Isn't that something?

    Where exactly is this book of Jasher, which bible is it in ?

  • snowbird


    I'm interested because it is referenced twice in the Holy Scriptures - Joshua 10:13 and 2 Samuel 1:18.
