Mahalaleel had a son, Jared, when he was 65 years old (460 AM).[3] He lived to be 895 years old, dying in 1290 AM.[4]

And Mahalaleel lived sixty and five years, and begat Jared: And Mahalaleel lived after he begat Jared eight hundred and thirty years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Mahalaleel were eight hundred ninety and five years: and he died. Genesis 5:15-17 (KJV)
