  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  initiated.  (1.)  The  eldest  son  of  Cain  (Gen.  4:17),  who  built  a 
  city  east  of  Eden  in  the  land  of  Nod,  and  called  it  "after  the 
  name  of  his  son  Enoch."  This  is  the  first  city"  mentioned  in 
  (2.)  The  son  of  Jared,  and  father  of  Methuselah  (Gen.  5:21; 
  Luke  3:37).  His  father  was  one  hundred  and  sixty-two  years  old 
  when  he  was  born.  After  the  birth  of  Methuselah,  Enoch  "walked 
  with  God  three  hundred  years"  (Gen.  5:22-24),  when  he  was 
  translated  without  tasting  death.  His  whole  life  on  earth  was 
  three  hundred  and  sixty-five  years.  He  was  the  "seventh  from 
  Adam"  (Jude  1:14),  as  distinguished  from  the  son  of  Cain,  the 
  third  from  Adam.  He  is  spoken  of  in  the  catalogue  of  Old 
  Testament  worthies  in  the  Epistle  to  the  Hebrews  (11:5).  When  he 
  was  translated,  only  Adam,  so  far  as  recorded,  had  as  yet  died  a 
  natural  death,  and  Noah  was  not  yet  born.  Mention  is  made  of 
  Enoch's  prophesying  only  in  Jude  1:14.
