Cainan had a son, Mahalalel, at age 70 (395 AM),[3] and died at the age of 910, in 1235 AM[4]
And Cainan lived seventy years and begat Mahalaleel: And Cainan lived after he begat Mahalaleel eight hundred and forty years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Cainan were nine hundred and ten years: and he died. Genesis 5:12-14 (KJV)
