Moreover the generations are grouped in accord with the Name of God YHVH yod-heh-vav-heh 10-5-6-5: The first 10 generations of Adam ends with Noach at the 10th generation and the Flood and is correspondent to the first yod in YHVH. The second set of generations begins with Shem and continues to Peleg at the 5th generation and where the name Peleg in Hebrew actually means ‘a break’ or ‘split’ and as it says in the text: And to Eber were born two sons; the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother's name was Joktan (Genesis 10:25). The five generations after Shem correspond to the letter heh in YHVH. The next set of generations begin with Rehoe and ends with Isaac at the 6th generation corresponding to the letter vav in YHVH. Isaac is a special figure because he was first Jew to be born of pure seed since he was born after the circumcision of Abraham and with the change of names of Abram and Sarai (See: The circumcision). The final set of generations begin with Jacob, the father of the twelve tribes of Israel, and begins with realisation of the first commandment of the Bible to be fruitful and multiply and the era in which the Children of Israel go done into Egypt and ends with Aaron and Moses and under Moses leadership he brings about the Exodus from Egypt into the Promised Land. This set has 5 generations corresponding with the value of the last letter of YHVH, the heh.
