Hidden message of authority:
Lamech lived to be 777 years old (vs. 31)
Begat Noah at -182
Lived 595 more years
Noah was 600 years old when the flood came.
Lamech (Noah’s father) died 5 years before the flood.

Methuselah lived to be 969 years old (vs. 27)
Begat Lamech at -187
Who begat Noah at -182
Lived 600 more years And he died
Noah was 600 years old when the flood came.
Methuselah (Noah’s grandfather) died the year of the flood.

Was Lamech a righteous man? Was Methuselah a righteous man? Read Genesis 6:5-8 focus vs. 8
Lamech and Methuselah were both alive when the Bible said only Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis 6:9

Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and walked with God. Noah was 600 years old when the flood came. Methuselah died the year of the flood. Methuselah was Noah’s grandfather. It would not have followed God’s commandment to honor your father if Noah had left any of his patriarchs to die in the flood. God did not make Noah make that choice. God’s timing for the flood was planned and perfect.
