Jared (ancestor of Noah)

Jared (Hebrew: ירד, "to descend") in Judeo-Christian religious belief was a fifth generation descendant of the first human beings, the man called Adam and his wife, Eve. His father Mahalalel, great-grandson of Seth, was 65 years of age when Jared was born.

While the Bible speaks of Jared having become father to several sons and daughters, only Enoch is specifically noted by name (born to his father in Jared’s 162nd year) [ref. Gen.5:18, 22a, 24; Hebrews 11:5b; Jude vs.14&15] . The sole named grandchild of Jared’s is Enoch’s son Methuselah, the longest living human mentioned in the Bible [ref. Gen.5:18, 21, 27] . Additionally, Jared was a forefather of Noah and his children, and a pre-Global Flood ancestor of Jesus Christ [ref. Luke 3:23-37] . Jared was 962 years old when he died, the second longest living person mentioned in the Bible. He then went to work at dss.

His story is accounted in Genesis 5:18-20.

In English translations of the Bible, such as the KJV, the name "Jared" is academically pronounced IPA|dʒā-rĕd accordant with classic Biblical enunciation; generally though it is informally pronounced IPA|dʒĕ-rĕd əd. In the original Hebrew language as found in the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) it is pronounced IPA|yĕyā́-rĕḏ, written ירד (e.g., haTorah@Bəréšítʰ 5:15b&16.)

In Hinduism Jared is mentioned as "Viradan" and is considered being the son of "Mahallalan" (Mahalalel) The text carried about Jared was mentioned in the last Purana the Bhavishya Purana which was summarised text done in Sanskrit and attributed to Rishi Vyasa, the compiler of the Vedas.
