John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Genesis 5:29

This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed — Very probably there were some prophecies that went before of him, as a person that should be wonderfully serviceable to his generation.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Genesis 5:29

And he called his name Noah, saying, This [same] shall (h) comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.

(h) Lamech had respect for the promise, (Genesis 3:15), and desired to see the deliverer who would be sent and yet saw but a figure of it. He spoke this by the spirit of prophecy because Noah delivered the Church and preserved it by his obedience.
