 Enoch /ˈinək, nɪk/

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    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.
