God’s oral law went from Adam to Seth, from Seth it was spoken orally into Enosh’s life. From Enosh it was passed down to Jared, from Jared the oral law of God was passed down to Enoch, from Enoch it was spoken into the life of Methuselah.
From Methuselah it went to Lamech and from Lamech it was passed down to Noah as it is written in (Gen 5:1-32).
Noah spoke the oral law and moral teachings of God into Shem’s life, Shem and his father Noah taught it into the life of Abraham.
(Noah was still alive during the time when Abraham was dwelling in the land of Ur of the Chaldeans)
The Oral law: Moses commanded it verbally to Joshua and the congregation of Israel saying; Make sure you observe every thing that I proscribe to you. And from that point the Jewish Oral law began to take shape.
