Wesley's Notes for Genesis 5:22


5:22 And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah - To walk with God, is to set God always before us, and to act as those that are always under his eye. It is to live a life of communion with God, both in ordinances and providences; it is to make God's word our rule, and his glory our end, in all our actions; it is to make it our constant care and endeavour in every thing to please God, and in nothing to offend him; it is to comply with his will, to concur with his designs, and to be workers together with him. He walked with God after he begat Methuselah, which intimates, that he did not begin to be eminent for piety 'till about that time.


Discussion for Genesis 5:22

  • Pastor Eleazar for verse 22
    When Enoch begot Methuselah, he began to observe how helpless a child could be without a primary care-giver. As baby Methuselah was tenderly handled, the father, Enoch began to understand what it means to have our heavenly Father who has our best as His interest. He does not only care, He saves.
