Occurrences:  19

First Reference:  Beginnings 20:22


Now Ramsha was most wicked, and he feared neither God nor man, and when he was 320 years old, he begat Methuselah, and all the days of his life were 615 years, and Ramsha died, and there was none found to weep over him.



See:  Adaam, Lamech, Noah, Ramsha, Ziphia


Summary: (c. 5,402 — c. 4,577 BCE) Methuselah (not to be confused with Methuselah I, the son of Enoch) was originally given the name Bozdra by his father, Ramsha — a cruel and violent man who had a reputation for killing Enoshahim for sport (AZC - Ramsha). Soon after the boy’s birth, his mother, Haziel, who was kidnapped by Ramsha, escaped with her son and returned to her village near the Sea of Galilee. It was there that Bozdra was given the name Methuselah. He married a woman named Ziphia, and eventually settled near Mount Moriah (AZC - Methuselah II).


Methuselah was the father of Lamech, and at the age of 367, became the grandfather of Noah. According to scripture, when Noah was forty years of age, Methuselah persuaded Lamech to send Noah to find a wife among the daughters of Lamech’s brother, Phiniah (B:20:26-28). The excursion led to the beloved union of Noah and Suzanne, the youngest daughter of Phiniah. When Lamech found out the couple had essentially run away without the permission of his brother, he was very distraught. Yet, Methuselah was elated that Noah and Suzanne were together, and — assuring Lamech that things could be smoothed over — he promptly sealed their marriage (B:20:41-44).


Methuselah was appointed as the High Priest of the Adaam at the age of 500. He guided his grandson Noah throughout his life, teaching and preparing him to initiate the second dispensation of God. It was Methuselah who first revealed to Noah his spiritual identity as the Arch-Angel Gabriel (B:22:1-20). The 1st Endowment reveals that Methuselah was the mortal manifestation of the Azraella Ahgendai (1:3:33). Methuselah lived 825 years, and was buried in a cave near Mount Moriah (AZC - Methuselah II).



Azrael’s Commentary - Methuselah II


Methuselah grew up in a pleasant Adamic village called Pelaree where he loved to fish on the Sea of Galilee. But after his father’s death, he moved to Mount Moriah where he met a strange giant of a man who suffered from madness. This man was none other than Yasher-Baal. Methuselah befriended Yasher-Baal and over a period of years, Yasher-Baal recovered from his dementia. Yasher-Baal proved helpful to Methuselah in the writing of a complete and comprehensive history of the Adamic Age. This history included a complete account of Adam and Eve, the great division of the Adaam, and a subsequent history of both the Sethian Empire and the Sumerian Empire. Yet, despite this friendly collaboration, Methuselah could not reconcile Yasher-Baal to God; and sometime after the history was completed, Yasher-Baal simply walked away and was never heard from again. This history of the Adamic Age was presented in a 14-volume set of books.


To this history, Methuselah II added a translatable dictionary of the Adamic language in which specific words, idioms and colloquialisms found among the Adaam were translated into the several languages used by the Enoshahim in the region.


Aside from his scholarly pursuits, Methuselah experimented with the breeding of goats for the purpose of milk and cheese production. A man known for his gentle sense of humor, Methuselah loved to create elaborate pranks which he played on his children and grandchildren. Methuselah loved a good laugh even if the joke was on him. Like Mother Eve, Methuselah preached that laughter was the best medicine.


On his 500th birthday, Methuselah was appointed the great High Priest of the Adaam. As High Priest, Methuselah sent exploratory teams throughout the world to report on distant lands, people and natural resources. These reports were used to create an almanac of the world. This almanac was used by his grandson, Noah, when he sent his sons throughout the world to broaden the Adamic influence at the advent of the second dispensation.


Azrael’s Commentary - Ramsha

Son of Eber, father of Methuselah II; a large, cruel and violent man. As a child Ramsha heard the stories of the Sethian Empire and of its fall to the armies of Ahgah Eaton and the Enoshahim. Thus in his youth he began to hate all Enoshahim, taking for his hero the man Bozdra (B:20:9). Growing into manhood, Ramsha refused to learn his father’s trade and he became instead a professional hunter; often trading in the fur and meat of the animals he killed. Becoming more skilled as a hunter with each passing year, Ramsha began to hunt the Enoshahim for sport. When this dark truth was discovered by his father, Ramsha killed him in order to keep his secret from being known. However, this heartless act was witnessed by a family friend, causing the Adaam to expel Ramsha from all their towns and villages.


To the Enoshahim, Ramsha became a terrifying enemy, and they often sent large hunting parties of their own against him. But for all their cunning and efforts, Ramsha proved elusive and ever more dangerous. As the centuries passed, Ramsha became a myth and a legend among those he hunted. When he was 320 years old, Ramsha fathered a son which he named Bozdra. The mother was a young Adamite woman named Haziel. She was stolen by Ramsha from the village of Pelaree, but with the birth of her son, she escaped from Ramsha and returned home to her parents’ house. There among the Adaam, the boy child was renamed. The name given to the boy was Methuselah. For the first twenty years of Methuselah’s life, he was guarded night and day by the Adaam to prevent Ramsha from stealing him away. Methuselah met his father only once, both proved a disappointment to each other. In a fit of rage, Ramsha tried to kill Methuselah, but Methuselah escaped and once again took refuge with the Adaam.
