Generation, or Generations, "has three secondary meanings in the A. V.:1. A genealogical register, as Genesis 5:1. 2. A family history, Genesis 6:9; Genesis 25:1 ff., since early history among the orientals is drawn so much from genealogical registers. 3. A history of the origin of things as well as persons—e.g., of the earth."—Smith.
