This is actually only a half-classic strip since it has been modified to fit the current format, as you can see.

In most translations, Genesis 5:27 tells us that Methuselah, Enoch’s son,  lived to be 969 years old, the oldest person recorded in the Bible; seven years longer than his grandfather Jared, and 19 years longer than his grandson Noah. The translation of his Hebrew name is “Man of the dart/spear”, or alternatively “his death shall bring judgment”, and traditionally, he is said to have died seven days before the Great Flood… dun, dun, DUN!!!
