Genesis Chapter 4 Bible App Commentary for Bible Verses

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse [1] This is the book of the ages of Adam. In the day that God made the man, in the resemblance of God made he him;

 

The main expressions of the section are the title of contention of the entire part; it is the book of the ages of Adam – It is the rundown or index of the descendants of Adam, not of all, but rather just of the heavenly seed, and of whom as concerning the substance Christ came; the names, ages, and passings of those that were the successors of the primary Adam in the guardianship of the guarantee, and the predecessors of the second Adam.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 1-2: Bible Verse [1] This is the book of the ages of Adam. In the day that God made man, in the resemblance of God made he him; [2] Male and female made he them; and favored them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were made.

 

Where we have a concise practice of what was before everywhere related concerning the production of man. This is the thing that we have to require as often as possible to know about, and cautiously to familiarize ourselves with. See here. 1. That God made the man. Man isn’t his own producer, in this manner, he should not be his own lord; but rather the creator of his being must be the executive of his movements and the focal point of them. 2. That there was multi-day in which God made the man, he was not from forever, but rather of yesterday; he was not the principal conceived, but rather the lesser of the creation. 3. That God made him in his own similarity, equitable and heavenly, and along these lines without a doubt cheerful; man’s inclination looked like the awesome nature more than that of any of the animals of this lower world. 4. That God made them male and female, Genesis 5:2, for their shared solace, just as for the conservation and increment of their sort. Adam and Eve were both made promptly by the hand of God, both made in God’s resemblance; and along these lines between the genders, there isn’t that incredible contrast and imbalance which some envision. 5. That God favored them. It is regular for guardians to favor their kids, so God the normal Father favored his, yet natural guardians can just ask a gift, it is God’s right to order it. It alludes mostly to the gift of increment, not barring different endowments.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Chapter 2:  Male and female made he them; and favored them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were made.

 

He called their name Adam — He gave this name both to the man and the lady. Being at initial one ordinarily, and thereafter one by marriage; it was fit they should both have a similar name, in token of their association.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse[3] And Adam experienced a hundred and thirty years, and generated a child in his very own similarity, after his picture; and called his name Seth:

 

Seth was conceived in the 130th year of Adam’s life, and most likely the homicide of Abel was not sometime before. Numerous different children and little girls were destined to Adam other than Cain and Abel before this; yet no notice is taken of them, on the grounds that a respectable notice must be made of his name just, in whose midsections Christ and the congregation were. In any case, what is most noticeable here concerning Seth, is, that Adam generated him in his own resemblance after his picture – Adam was made in the picture of God; however when he was fallen and undermined, he conceived a child in his very own picture, evil and polluted, delicate and mortal, and hopeless such as himself; not just a man such as himself, comprising of body and soul; yet a delinquent such as himself, blameworthy and repulsive, degenerate and degenerate. He was imagined and conceived in transgression, Psalms 51:5. This was Adam’s very own similarity, the switch of that Divine resemblance in which Adam was made; however, having lost it himself he couldn’t pass on it to his seed.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 5

 

And all the days that Adam lived were nine hundred and thirty years: and he kicked the bucket. In the day Adam ate taboo organic product, he ended up mortal, he started to kick the bucket; as long as he can remember after was nevertheless a relinquished censured life, nay it was a squandering passing on life; he resembled a criminal condemned, as well as one previously executed, that bites the dust gradually and by degrees.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 6-19

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse[6] And Seth experienced a hundred and five years, and sired Enos: [7] And Seth lived after he generated Enos eight hundred and seven years, and sired children and girls: [8] And all the times of Seth were nine hundred and twelve years: and he kicked the bucket. [9] And Enos lived ninety years and generated Cainan: [10] And Enos lived after he sired Cainan eight hundred and fifteen years, and sired children and little girls: [11] And all the times of Enos were nine hundred and five years: and he passed on. [12] And Cainan lived seventy years, and sired Mahalaleel: [13] And Cainan lived after he conceived Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and sired children and little girls: [14] And all the times of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he kicked the bucket. [15] And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and sired Jared: [16] And Mahalaleel lived after he sired Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and sired children and little girls: [17] And all the times of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he kicked the bucket. [18] And Jared experienced a hundred sixty and two years, and he sired Enoch: [19] And Jared lived after he generated Enoch eight hundred years, and conceived children and little girls:

 

We have here all that the Holy Ghost thought fit to leave upon record concerning five of the patriarchs before the flood, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, and Jared. There is nothing noticeable concerning any of those especially, tho’ we have the motivation to think they were men of distinction, both for reasonability and devotion: But as a rule, see how to a great extent and explicitly their ages are recorded. We are told to what extent they experienced that lived in God’s dread, and when they kicked the bucket, that passed on to support him; however concerning others, it is regardless: the memory of the simple is honored, yet the name of the devilish will decay. That which is particularly discernible, is, that they all lived long; not one of them kicked the bucket ’till he had seen the transformation of just about eight hundred years, and some of them any longer; an extraordinary while for an eternal soul to be detained in a place of earth. The present life without a doubt was not to them such weight as normally it is currently, else they would have been fatigued of it; nor was the future life so unmistakably uncovered at that point, as it is currently under the gospel, else they would have been eager to expel it. Some common causes might be appointed for their long life in those first ages. It is entirely plausible that the earth was progressively productive, the results of it all the more fortifying, the air increasingly refreshing, and the impacts of the brilliant bodies more amiable before the flood than they were after. Despite the fact that man was driven out of heaven, yet the earth itself was then paradisaical; a garden in examination with its present state: and some think, that their insight into the animals and their helpfulness both, for their sustenance and prescription, together with their moderation and restraint, contributed a lot to it; yet we don’t find that the individuals who were exorbitant, the same number of were, Luke 17:27, as brief as calm men by and large are currently. It should thusly predominantly be settled into the power and fortune of God; he delayed their lives, both for the more quick renewing of the earth, and for the more viable safeguarding of the information of God and religion, at that point when there was no composed word, yet convention was the channel of its transport. All the patriarchs here (aside from Noah) were conceived before Adam passed away, so that from him they may get a full record of the creation, heaven, the fall, the guarantee, and those perfect statutes which concerned religious love and a religious life: and if any mix-up emerged, they may have plan of action to him while he lived, as to a prophet, for its redressing, and after his passing to Methuselah, and others that had peaked with him; so incredible was the consideration of Almighty God to safeguard in his congregation the information of his will, and the virtue of his love.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 22:  And Enoch strolled with God after he conceived Methuselah three hundred years, and sired children and little girls:

 

What’s more, Enoch strolled with God after he generated Methuselah — To stroll with God is to set God dependably before us, and to go about as those that are constantly under his eye. It is to carry on with an actual existence of fellowship with God, both in laws and provisions; it is to make God’s pledge our standard, and his wonder our end, in the entirety of our activities; it is to make it our steady consideration and try in everything to satisfy God, and in nothing to irritate him; it is to consent to his will, to agree with his structures, and to be laborers together with him. He strolled with God after he conceived Methuselah, which suggests, that he didn’t start to be famous for devotion ’till about that time.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 24 And Enoch strolled with God: and he was not; for God took him. He was not, for God took him — That is, as it is clarified, Hebrews 11:5, he was deciphered that he ought not to see demise; and was not found, since God had interpreted him. In any case, for what reason did God take him so soon? Without a doubt in light of the fact that the world, which was currently become degenerate, was not deserving of him. Since his work was done and done the sooner for his disapproving of it so intently.

 

He was not, for God took him — He was no longer in this world: it was not the time of his being, but rather of his being here. He was not found; so the missionary clarifies it from the seventy; not found by his companions, who looked for him, as the children of the prophets looked for Elijah, 2 Kings 2:17. God took him body and soul to himself in the brilliant heaven, by the service of holy messengers, as a while later he took Elijah. He was changed, as those holy people will be that will be discovered alive at Christ’s second coming.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 25:  And Methuselah experienced a hundred eighty and seven years, and generated Lamech:

 

Methuselah connotes, He kicks the bucket, there is a sending forward, viz. of the downpour, which came the very year that Methuselah passed on. On the off chance that his name was so expected, it was a reasonable cautioning to an imprudent world sometime before the judgment came. Be that as it may, this is discernible, that the longest liver that at any point was, conveyed demise in his name, that he may be disapproved of its coming clearly, tho’ it came gradually. He lived nine hundred sixty and nine years, the longest we read of that ever any man lived on earth, but he kicked the bucket: the longest liver must pass on finally. Neither youth nor age will release from that war, for that is the finish all things considered: none can test life by long remedy, nor make that a supplication against the captures of death. ‘This usually assumed, that Methuselah kicked the bucket a little before the flood; the Jewish essayists state, seven days prior, alluding to Genesis 7:10, and that he was detracted from the shrewdness to come.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 29:  And he called his name Noah, saying, This equivalent will comfort us concerning our work and drudge of our hands, as a result of the ground which the LORD hath reviled.

 

This equivalent will comfort us concerning our work and drudge of our hands, due to the ground which the Lord hath reviled — Very most likely there were a few predictions that went before of him, as an individual that ought to be brilliantly useful to his age.

 

Bible App Commentary for Genesis 4 Bible Verse 32:  And Noah was five hundred years of age: and Noah generated Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

 

What’s more, Noah conceived Shem, Ham, and Japheth — These Noah generated (the oldest of these) when he was six hundred years of age. It ought to appear that Japheth was the oldest, Genesis 10:21, yet Shem is put first, on the grounds that on him the pledge was involved, as shows up by Genesis 9:26, where God is known as the Lord God of Shem. To him ’tis likely the inheritance was given, and from him ’tis certain both Christ the head, and the congregation the body, were to plummet; along these lines he is called Shem, which means a name, on the grounds that in his family the name of God ought to dependably stay, ’till He should leave his flanks, whose name is over each name; so that in putting Shem first, Christ was basically put first, who in everything must have the pre-greatness. For the wonder of God’s equity, and for notice to an evil world, before the historical backdrop of the demolishing of the old world we have a full record of its decadence, its apostasy from God, and insubordination to him. Its obliterating was a demonstration not of outright sway, but rather of important equity and justice.
