Enoch did not “live”—he walked with God. Enoch did not “die”—he walked with God, and God took him. Moreover, that “walk” lasted three hundred years. The expression became a common description of the life of fellowship and obedience with the Lord, as if to say that walking with the Lord was a step above mere living. To walk with the Lord was commanded of Israel (Lev. 26:3; see also v. 12); it remains the standard for the believer’s life (Col. 2:6; Rev. 3:4).
