According to the Bible, how many years did Methuselah live?

69 years
96 years
696 years
969 years
Some believe that Methuselah's extreme age is the result of an ancient mistranslation that converted "months" to "years". That would produce a more credible 78 years, but the same calculation applied to Enoch would have him fathering Methuselah at the age of 5.
