The Wickedness and Judgment of Man
1Now it came to pass, #Gen. 1:28when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they #Deut. 7:3, 4took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3And the Lord said, #Gen. 41:38; (Gal. 5:16, 17); 1 Pet. 3:19, 20“My Spirit shall not #2 Thess. 2:7strive with man forever, #Ps. 78:39for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4There were giants on the earth in those #Num. 13:32, 33; Luke 17:27days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every #Gen. 8:21; Ps. 14:1–3; Prov. 6:18; Matt. 15:19; Rom. 1:28–32intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6And #Gen. 6:7; 1 Sam. 15:11, 29; 2 Sam. 24:16; Jer. 18:7–10; Zech. 8:14the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and #Ps. 78:40; Is. 63:10; Eph. 4:30He was grieved in His #Mark 3:5heart. 7So the Lord said, “I will #Gen. 7:4, 23; Deut. 28:63; 29:20; Ps. 7:11destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8But Noah #Gen. 19:19; Ex. 33:12, 17; Luke 1:30; Acts 7:46found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Noah Pleases God
9This is the genealogy of Noah. #Gen. 7:1; Ezek. 14:14, 20; Heb. 11:7; 2 Pet. 2:5Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah #Gen. 5:22, 24; 2 Kin. 23:3walked with God. 10And Noah begot three sons: #Gen. 5:32; 7:13Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11The earth also was corrupt #Deut. 31:29; Judg. 2:19; Rom. 2:13before God, and the earth was #Ezek. 8:17filled with violence. 12So God #Ps. 14:2; 53:2, 3looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for #Ps. 14:1–3; Is. 28:8all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
The Ark Prepared
13And God said to Noah, #Is. 34:1–4; Jer. 51:13; Ezek. 7:2, 3; Amos 8:2; 1 Pet. 4:7“The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; #Gen. 6:17and behold, #2 Pet. 2:4–10I will destroy them with the earth. 14Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17#Gen. 7:4, 21–23; 2 Pet. 2:5And behold, I Myself am bringing #2 Pet. 3:6floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall #Luke 16:22die. 18But I will establish My #Gen. 8:20—9:17; 17:7covenant with you; and #Gen. 7:1, 7, 13; 1 Pet. 3:20; 2 Pet. 2:5you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring #Gen. 7:2, 8, 9, 14–16two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind #Gen. 7:9, 15will come to you to keep them alive. 21And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.”
22#Gen. 7:5; 12:4, 5; Heb. 11:7Thus Noah did; #Gen. 7:5, 9, 16according to all that #(1 John 5:3)God commanded him, so he did.

Man’s Wickedness
1#Ge 1:28When men began to multiply on the face of the earth and daughters were born to them, 2the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair and took as wives any they chose. 3#Ps 78:39; Ne 9:30The Lord said, “My Spirit will not always strive with man, for he is flesh; yet his days will be a hundred and twenty years.”
4#Nu 13:33; Dt 3:11The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5#Ge 8:21; Mt 15:19The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was continually only evil. 6#Isa 63:10; 1Sa 15:11The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him in His heart. 7So the Lord said, “I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the birds of the sky, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8#Ge 19:19; Lk 1:30But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Noah and the Flood
9#Lk 1:6; 2Pe 2:5These are the generations of Noah.
Noah was a just man and blameless among his contemporaries. Noah walked with God. 10#Ge 5:32Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11#Eze 8:17The earth was corrupt before God and filled with violence. 12#Job 22:15–17; 33:27God looked on the earth and saw it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13#Am 8:2; 1Pe 4:7So God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh is come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Now I will destroy them with the earth. 14#Ex 2:3; 1Pe 3:20Make an ark of cypress wood for yourself. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch. 15And this is how you must make it: The length of the ark will be three hundred cubits, the width of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.#About 10 pounds, or 4.6 kilograms. 16Make an opening#Or roof. one cubit#About 18 inches, or 45 centimeters. below the top of the ark all around; and you must set the door of the ark on the side. Make it with a lower, a second, and a third story. 17#Ge 7:4; 7:21–23; 2Pe 2:5I will bring a flood of waters on the earth to destroy all flesh, wherever there is the breath of life under heaven, and everything that is on the earth will die. 18#Ge 7:7; 7:1But I will establish My covenant with you; you must go into the ark—you, and your sons, and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19Bring every living thing of all flesh, two of every kind, into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal, and of every kind of creeping thing of the earth will come to you to be kept alive. 21#Ge 1:29–30Also, take with you of every kind of food that is eaten and gather it to yourself, and it will be for food for you and for them.”
22#Ge 7:5; 7:9Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.
