Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Genesis 5:26

_ _ Lamech — a different person from the one mentioned in the preceding chapter [Genesis 4:18]. Like his namesake, however, he also spoke in numbers on occasion of the birth of Noah — that is, “rest” or “comfort” [Genesis 5:29, Margin]. “The allusion is, undoubtedly, to the penal consequences of the fall in earthly toils and sufferings, and to the hope of a Deliverer, excited by the promise made to Eve. That this expectation was founded on a divine communication we infer from the importance attached to it and the confidence of its expression” [Peter Smith].
