Husbandman - Word Study and Whatnot

Genesis 9:20 - Noah is referred to as a "husbandman". I did not know what this meant, so I looked it up.

Main Entry:
hus·band·man
Pronunciation:
\ˈhəz-bən(d)-mən\
Function:
noun
Date:
14th century
1 : one that plows and cultivates land : farmer 2 : a specialist in a branch of farm husbandry

Genesis 9:28 - States that Noah lived 350 years after the flood. You know, most people think that long life ended after the flood, due to the damage to the ecosystem, caused by the flood. I tend to think otherwise, like when you have sprouts after a fire somewhere. It did not destroy the earth, the earth is living, it will make new life to replace the lost.

Just think of all the rich nutrients it got from all the dead animals, plants, and people.
