Some say that Lamech has a root word in Lament which does me sorrow.
As of this time we have not found any such connection.

Noah =
comfort rest Hebrew 5146

The same as H5118; rest; Noach, the patriarch of the flood: - Noah.

Zondervan's Pictorial Bible Dictionary
Noah means comfort




man appointed mortal possession praise of El come down teaching when he is dead it shall be sent powerful comfort rest

In a proper sentence structure the definitions would read:
Man appointed a mortal possession, praise of El to come down teaching, and when he is dead it shall be sent, a powerful comfort, and rest.

Now we have to ask ourselves a question, who is the praise of El, that came down teaching, died, and after His resurrection sent the comforter?
Answer: YHWH!!!
Yeshua fulfills all of Genesis Chapter 5, and much more...He fulfills all of the Torah, and the Prophets.
