Genesis 25:8

Then Abraham died at a good old age, an old man, and full of years; and was gathered to his people.

AD 420
I am reviewing carefully the places in Scripture where I might find old age mentioned for the first time. Adam lived for years, yet he is not called an old man. Methuselah’s life was years, and he is not called an old man. I am coming down all the way to the flood, and after the flood for almost three thousand years, and I find no one who has been called old. Abraham is the first one, and certainly he was much younger than Methuselah, but he is called an old man because his old age had been anointed with rich oil. In fine, it is written there in the Scripture, “Abraham died at a good old age; full of days.” His was a good old age because it was full of days, for the whole of his life was day and not night.
