    Methuselah’s name makes it ironic that he would be the one who lived the longest, since his name actually contains the Hebrew word for death. The word muwth means “die/death” in Hebrew. The first part of Methuselah’s name means “mortal”. Taking meth/muth and combining it with selah, some have suggested that this signifies when the Flood will come.
