Methuselah (me-thû'se-lah), man of dart, or he dies and it is sent—namely, the flood. The son of Enoch, and, according to Hebrew chronology, 969 years old when he died, in the first year of the flood. The longest-lived man was the son of the saintliest of his time. Genesis 5:27; 1 Chronicles 1:3. He lived 243 years with Adam and 600 years with Noah. The history of the fall and of the world before the flood was carried thus through only one person to Noah.
