69 years

96 years

696 years

969 years

Some believe that Methuse­lah's extreme age is the result of an ancient mis­trans­la­tion that con­vert­ed "months" to "years". That would produce a more credible 78 years, but the same cal­cu­la­tion applied to Enoch would have him fa­ther­ing Methuse­lah at the age of 5.
