“Biblical genealogies are so boring!”
Heard that before? Thought that before? So have I. Then the other day a friend of mine showed me this chart of the translation/meanings of several of the Hebrew names in the genealogy of Genesis 5.
|MEHALALEL||The Blessed God|
|JARED||Shall come down|
|METHUSALEH||His death shall bring|
Pretty cool, I must admit.
