Enosh … Kenan … Mahalalel … Jared … Enoch … Methuselah … Lamech

These are all names of men. Each man was the father or ancestor of the next man in the list. If your language has a specific way to mark this kind of list, you can use it here. (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/translate-names)

Lamech. The sons of Noah

If your readers will need to see that Noah was the son of Lamech and your language has a way to mark it, you should use it here.
