In Beresheith/Genesis 5:24 it states:
וַיִּתְהַלֵּ֥ךְ חֲנ֖וֹךְ אֶת־הָֽאֱלֹהִ֑ים וְאֵינֶ֕נּוּ כִּֽי־לָקַ֥ח אֹת֖וֹ אֱלֹהִֽים׃
Enoch walked with G-d; then he was no more, for G-d took him
According to Genesis 6:9, Noach walked with G-d also
אֵ֚לֶּה תּוֹלְדֹ֣ת נֹ֔חַ נֹ֗חַ אִ֥ישׁ צַדִּ֛יק תָּמִ֥ים הָיָ֖ה בְּדֹֽרֹתָ֑יו אֶת־הָֽאֱלֹהִ֖ים הִֽתְהַלֶּךְ־נֹֽחַ׃
This is the line of Noah.—Noah was a righteous man; he was blameless in his age; Noah walked with God.
Seeing what Noach was called to do and knowing that for him to be chosen to do it, had to mean that not only he was the most qualified but just the man for the job. It leads me to ask why was Chanoch taken but not Noach? I inquire not to challenge what is written but to see if anyone else had this thought. Has this ever been discussed? Are there commentaries or articles that speak on this?
As always scriptural references, articles, commentaries, and personal insight are always welcomed. Todah Rabbah.
