Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

Genesis 5:24

And Enoch lived  sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Genesis 21-24
