  1. In Noah´s days there was lots of immorality end sin, maybe there members of his own family among those people. The bible does not say anything about that. Important is now that we pay attention in these days, about what Jesus said about the last days. He took that as an example for us, to give a warning. Lets stay close to Jehovah God and his organization. Agape!
  2. Lame ch uttered the words: “This one will bring us comfort from our work and from the pain of our hands resulting from the ground which Jehovah has cursed.” He was revering to the new baby that was born, if you say "this one", then there must have been other children too. It´s also possible that the other children of Lame ch were not alive anymore, the bible doesn't specifically mentions anything about Noah´s family.
  3. Lamech had given his son the name Noah—probably meaning “Rest; Consolation”—and had prophesied that Noah would fulfill the significance of his name by leading mankind to a rest from toiling on cursed ground. (Genesis 5:28, 29) Lamech did not live to see this prophecy fulfilled. (Laʹmech). 1. The son of Methushael and a descendant of Cain. (Ge 4:17, 18) His lifetime and Adam’s overlapped. Lamech had two wives, Adah and Zillah, at the same time and is the first polygamist of Bible record. (Ge 4:19) By Adah he had sons named Jabal, “the founder of those who dwell in tents and have livestock,” and Jubal, “the founder of all those who handle the harp and the pipe.” (Ge 4:20, 21) By Zillah, Lamech became the father of Tubal-cain, “the forger of every sort of tool of copper and iron,” and a daughter named Naamah.—Ge 4:22. The poem that Lamech composed for his wives (Ge 4:23, 24) reflects the violent spirit of that day. Lamech’s poem ran: “Hear my voice, you wives of Lamech; give ear to my saying: A man I have killed for wounding me, yes, a young man for giving me a blow. If seven times Cain is to be avenged, then Lamech seventy times and seven.” Evidently Lamech was presenting a case of self-defense, pleading that his act was not one of deliberate murder, like that of Cain. Lamech claimed that, in defending himself, he had killed the man who struck and wounded him. Therefore, his poem stood as a plea for immunity against anyone desiring to get revenge against him for killing his attacker. It appears that none of Cain’s descendants, which would include Lamech’s offspring, survived the Flood. 2. A descendant of Seth; son of Methuselah and father of Noah. (Ge 5:25, 28, 29; 1Ch 1:1-4) The lifetimes of this Lamech and Adam likewise overlapped. Lamech had faith in God, and after calling his son’s name Noah (probably meaning “Rest; Consolation”), he uttered the words: “This one will bring us comfort from our work and from the pain of our hands resulting from the ground which Jehovah has cursed.” (Ge 5:29) These words found fulfillment when the curse on the ground was lifted during Noah’s lifetime. (Ge 8:21) Lamech had other sons and daughters. He lived 777 years, dying about five years before the Flood. (Ge 5:30, 31) His name is listed in the genealogy of Jesus Christ at Luke 3:36.
  4. Thank you for the nice poem, its so encouraging and nice to know that we can go forward, knowing that Jehovah keeps his promises, and soon we will see our loved ones again in Paradise.
  5. I am so happy to hear that our brothers and sisters in Russia were able to have the memorial service, without any problems. We are thinking of you all, and also remember in our prayers. May Jehovah give you all the strength to keep on going. Love you all, Agape!! Greetings and much of love and many hugs from Germany!!
