Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

חֲנוֹךְ (“initiated,” or “initiating”), [Enoch], pr.n.

(1) the eldest son of Cain, Genesis 4:17 whose name was also given to the city which his father built.

(2) the father of Methuselah, translated to heaven because of his piety [“by faith,” Hebrews 11:5 ], (-Gen. 5:1824 ). From the etymology of his name the later Jews have not only conjectured him to have been a most distinguished antediluvian prophet, but they have also imagined him to have been the inventor of letters and learning; and thus books have been ascribed to him (see the Epistle of Jude, ver. 12). [Whatever the Jews may have reigned, and whatever books may have been falsely ascribed to him, we may rest assured on the authority of God in the New Test., that he was a prophet, and that he uttered the prophecy recorded in Judges 1:12 the same Spirit who spoke by his mouth wrote by the pen of Jude.] The Arabs have re-wrought these fables, by whom he is called ادريس.

(3) the eldest son of Reuben, Genesis 46:4; Exodus 6:14.

(4) a son of Midian, Genesis 25:4. Patron. No. 3. חֲנֹכִי Numbers 26:5.
