11:5 Because of faith Enoch was caught up and transferred to heaven, so that he did not have a glimpse of death; and he was not found, because God had translated him. For even before he was taken to heaven, he received testimony [still on record] that he had pleased and been satisfactory to God.
Genesis 5:21-24 (Amplified Bible)
5:21 When Enoch was 65 years old, Methuselah was born.
5:22 Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God after the birth of Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters.
5:23 So all the days of Enoch were 365 years.
5:24 And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him].
