🔼The name Enoch in the Bible

There are three Enochs mentioned in the Bible (not counting the highly similar name Hanoch):

  • The first Enoch is a son of Cain, who was the first son of Adam and Eve.
  • The second Enoch is a town named after the first, built by Cain, apparently in the land of Nod (Genesis 4:17).
  • The third Enoch is a son of Jared, of the line of Seth, third son of Adam and Eve (Genesis 5:19). This Enoch, who famously "walked with God," is the seventh generation (where Adam is the first; Jude 1:14, Hebrews 11:5; spelled Ενωχ). This man also appears in the Lucan genealogy of Christ (Luke 3:37).
