Methu'sael (Hebrews Methushatl', מתוּשָׁאֵל, man that is from God; Sept. Μαθουσάλα, Vulg. Mathusael), the son of Mehujael and father of Lamech, of the family of Cain (Ge 4:18). BC. cir. 3770. The resemblance of the name to the following, on which (with the coincidence of the name Lamech in the next generation in both lines) some theories have been formed, is apparent rather than real.
