JARED

ja'-red (yeredh, "descent"; pausal form, yaredh, in Gen 5:15; 1 Ch 1:2, hence, English Versions of the Bible "Jared" for "Jered"; Iared): In Gen 5:15-20; 1 Ch 1:2; Lk 3:37, son of Mahalaleel and father of Enoch. The King James Version has "Jered" in 1 Ch 1:2.
The name is supposed by Budde to denote a degeneration of the human race, the first five generations being righteous, their successors not, except Enoch and Noah. The name has been identified with that of Irad (iradh), Gen 4:18. See Skinner, Gen, 117, 129, 131.
