Did People Really Live That Long In The Old Testament?

Methuselah was the oldest person to have lived in the Bible and died at the age of 969 years old. Others also died very old. Was this possible? What do you think?

I would say yes. I would believe in what seems foolish to the world, but wise unto God. His word records of many living a long lasting life.

Proverbs 10:27 The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened.

Genesis 5:25 And Methuselah lived an hundred eighty and seven years, and begat Lamech

If Sarah and Abraham only knew! They would of waited on the Lords promise and we wouldn't be dealing with the middle east today, between Issac and Ishmael seed.
