This name derives from the Hebrew “chănôk > H̱anokh / Ḥănōḵ”, meaning “dedicated, consecrated”. According to the Book of Genesis, Enoch was a son of Cain, grandson of Adam, and father of Irad. After Cain arrived in the Land of Nod, to which he was evicted by the Lord as his punishment for murdering his brother Abel, his wife got pregnant and bore Cain's first child, whom he named Enoch. Enoch appears in the Book of Genesis and a figure in the Generations of Adam. Enoch is the son of Jared (Gen 5:3-18), the father of Methuselah, and the great-grandfather of Noah.
