Are there 'Hidden Messages" in the Bible?
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but it is the honor of kings to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

Genealogy of Genesis 5
Adam
Seth
Enosh
Kenan
Mahalalel
Jared
Enoch
Methuselah
Lamech
Noah
Adam
adomah, means 'man." The same 17 elements that make up our body chemistry are the same 17 elements that are found in the 'dust of the ground."

Seth
tve seth, which means 'appointed."
Eve said, 'For God hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew." Genesis 4:25
Enosh
vAna/ which means 'mortal," 'frail," or 'miserable." It is from the root anash, to be incurable; used of a wound, grief, woe, sickness, or wickedness.

Gen 4:26 is often mistranslated. The classic rendering (Onkelos, et al.) read, 'then men began to profane the name of the Lord." It was in the days

of Enosh that men began to defile the name of the Living God.
Kenan
which can mean 'sorrow," 'dirge," or 'elegy." (The precise denotation is somewhat elusive; some study aids unfortunately presume that Kenan is synonymous with

'Cainan.") Balaam, looking down from the heights of Moab, uses a pun upon the name of the Kenites when he prophesies their destruction. (Num 24:21, 23).

Mahalalel
which means 'blessed" or 'praise"; and la El, the name for God = 'The Blessed God."
Jared (Yared)
from the verb yaradh, meaning 'shall come down." Some authorities suggest that this might be an allusion to the 'Sons of God" who 'came down" to corrupt the daughters of men, resulting in the Nephilim of Genesis 6.

Enoch
which means 'commencement," or 'teaching." And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, To execute

judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Methuselah
muth, a root that means 'death"; xlv shalach, which means 'to bring," or 'to send forth." = 'His death shall bring."
Lamech
a root still evident today in our own English word, 'lament" or 'lamentation" = 'Despairing."
Noah
which is derived from nacham, 'to bring relief" or 'comfort," = 'Comfort, or Rest."

Put them all together:
"Man has been appointed sorrow, blessed God shall come down teaching that His death shall bring the desparing rest"
