This Enoch is not to be confused with Cain's son Enoch (Genesis 4:17). The text of the Book of Genesis says Enoch lived 365 years before he was taken by God.

Enoch appears in the Book of Genesis of the Pentateuch as the seventh of the ten pre-Deluge Patriarchs. Genesis recounts that each of the pre-Flood Patriarchs lived for several centuries. Genesis 5 provides a genealogy of these ten figures (from Adam to Noah), providing the age at which each fathered the next, and the age of each figure at death. Enoch is considered by many to be the exception, who is said to "not see death" (Hebrews 11:5). Furthermore, Genesis 5:22–29 states that Enoch lived 365 years, which is extremely short in the context of his peers, who are all recorded as dying at over 700 years of age. The brief account of Enoch in Genesis 5 ends with the cryptic note that "he [was]not; for God took him".
Three extensive apocryphalworks are attributed to Enoch: 1. 1st Book of Enoch, or simply the Book of Enoch, written in Ge'ez (Ethiopic), first time brought in Europe by James Bruce and translated in English by August Dillmann and Reverent Schoode - recognized by the Ethiopian OrthodoxBible and usually dated between the third century BC and the first century AD. 2. 2nd Book of Enoch or the Book of the Secrets of Enoch, written in Old Bulgarian, Russian, Serbian and other slav languages, first translated in English by William Morfill - recognized by the Old SlavonicBible usually dated to the first century AD. 3. 3rd Book of Enoch, a Rabbinic text in Hebrew usually dated to the fifth century AD. These recount how Enoch was taken up to Heaven and was appointed guardian of all the celestial treasures, chief of the archangels, and the immediate attendant on God's throne. He was subsequently taught all secrets and mysteries and, with all the angels at his back, fulfil...
The New Testament contains three references to Enoch. 1. The first is a brief mention in one of the genealogies of the ancestors of Jesus by Luke (Luke 3:37). 2. The second mention is in Hebrews 11: 5 (KJV) which says, "By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God." This suggests he did not experience the mortal death ascribed to Adam's other descendants...
Early Christianity contains various traditions concerning the "translation" of Enoch. Regarding the quotation in Jude, most of early Christianity considered it an independent quotation pre-dating the flood. Regarding the Book of Enoch itself Origen, Jerome and Augustin mention it, but as of no authority. Justin, Athenagoras, Irenaeus, Clemens Alexandrinus, Lactantius, and others borrowed an opinion out of this book of Enoch, that the angels had sexu...

According to the Figurists (a group of Jesuit missionaries mainly led by Joachim Bouvet into China at the end of the seventeenth and the beginning of the eighteenth century and based on ideas of Matteo Ricci 1552 to 1610), Fu Xiin China's ancient history is actually Enoch.
In Islam, Enoch (Arabic: أَخْنُوخ, romanized: ʼAkhnūkh [commonly in Islamic literature]: ʼIdrīs إِِدْرِيس)) is identified with Idris, as for example by the History of Al-Tabari intrepretation and the Meadows of Gold. The Quran contains two references to Idris; in Surah Al-Anbiya (The Prophets) verse number 85, and in Surah Maryam(Mary) verses 56-57: 1. (The Prophets, 21:85): "And the same blessing was bestowed upon Ismail and Idris and Zul-Kifl, because they all practised fortitude." 2. (Mary19:56-57): "And remember Idris in the Book; he was indeed very truthful, a Prophet. And We lifted him to a lofty station". Idris is closely linked in Muslim tradition with the origin of writing and other technical arts of civilization, including the study of astronomical phenomena, both of which Enoch is credited with in the Testament of Abraham. Nonetheless, although some Muslims view Enoch and Idris as the same prophet while others do not, many Mu...The Descendants of Adam, The Legacy of Cain, The Souls Elijah and EnochCatholic Encyclopedia Henoch(1914)Andrei A.

Cain is a Biblical figure in the Book of Genesis within Abrahamic religions. He is the older twin brother of Abel and the son of Adam and Eve, the first couple within the Biblical tale. He was a farmer who gave an offering of his crops to God with which God was not pleased and favored Abel's over Cain. Out of jealousy he then killed his brother, which lead to the punishment as the curse and mark of Cain. He had various offsprings starting with Enoch including Lamech. His lineage would later be w
The single specific description of the role of the Son of Man given in this verse from the book of Moses as a "righteous judge" is highly characteristic of the Book of the Parables within 1 Enoch, where the primary role of the Son of Man is also that of a judge (e.g., 1 Enoch 69:27. Cf. John 5:27)."
In the Book of Enoch (22:7), regarded by most Christian and Jewish traditions as extra-biblical, the soul of Abel is described as having been appointed as the chief of martyrs, crying for vengeance, for the destruction of the seed of Cain.
Enoch was the son of Cain. The story of prophet Enoch (Idris) is mentioned in the Quran (Surah Maryam). He is praised as highly upright, pious, and that God raised him to a high place. Some said this place was the fourth heaven and some said the sixth. What is confirmed is that Prophet Enoch then came back to Earth after being raised to the heavens.
Cain and Seth. Genesis gives Adam and Eve three children, named Cain, Abel and Seth. A genealogy tracing the descendants of Cain is given in Genesis 4, while the line from Seth down to Noah appears in Genesis 5. Scholars have noted similarities between these descents: most of the names in each are variants of those in the other, though their order differs, with the names of Enoch and Mahalalel/Mehujael switching places in the two pedigrees.
Lamech is the eighth-generation descendant of Adam (Genesis 5:25), the son of Methuselah, and the father of Noah (Genesis 5:29), in the genealogy of Seth in Genesis 5. In Genesis 5:12-25, Lamech was a son of Methuselah, who was a grandson of Jared , who was a grandson of Kenan descended from Adam.
Genesis tells us Cain had a wife, and the two of them had a son named Enoch (not the more famous Enoch who God brought up to Heaven so they could have a chill hang), after whom Cain named his great city. This raises something of an obvious question: uh, who was Cain's wife? Literally all the Bible says is she and Cain did the deed and had a baby.
