Methuselah was the grandfather of Noah;
he is listed in the genealogy of Adam's descendents
(see Gen. 5:21,25-27). The first ten generations
in this genealogy were noted for their extraordinarily
long lives -- for example, Adam lived 930 years and
Noah lived 950. Methuselah was the longest-lived of
them all: 969 years; he died just before the Flood.
