What is the human life span?


70 years.

The days of our years are threescore years and ten. Psalm 90:10

120 years.

Yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. Genesis 6:3

Just before drowning everyone in the flood, God reduced the human life span to 120 years.

But after the flood, many men (and at least one woman) lived longer than God's 120 year limit. Here are some examples:

Noah - 950 years Genesis 9:29
Shem - 600 years Genesis 11:10-11
Arphaxad - 438 years Genesis 11:12-13
Salah - 433 years Genesis 11:14-15
Eber - 464 years Genesis 11:16-17
Peleg - 239 years Genesis 11:18-19
Reu - 239 years Genesis 11:20-21
Serug - 229 years Genesis 11:22-23
Nahor - 148 years Genesis 11:24-25
Terah - 205 years Genesis 11:32
Sarah - 127 years Genesis 23:1
Abraham - 175 years Genesis 25:7
Ishmael - 137 years Genesis 25:17
