Jared (Hebrew: ירד, Yarĕḏ; "slave" or more likely "shall come down"[1]) (460 AM-1422 AM or 3544 BC-2582 BC) was the son of Mahalaleel and the father of Enoch. He was born to his father Mahalaleel when Mahalaleel was 65 years old, in 460 AM.[2]

Jared had a son, Enoch, when he was 162 years old (622 AM).[3] He lived to be 962 years old, dying in 1422 AM.[4]

And Jared lived an hundred sixty and two years, and he begat Enoch: And Jared lived after he begat Enoch eight hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Jared were nine hundred sixty and two years: and he died. Genesis 5:18-20 (KJV)
