Genesis 6

1So when men began to be multiplied vpon the earth, and there were daughters borne vnto them, 2Then the sonnes of God sawe the daughters of men that they were faire, and they tooke them wiues of all that they liked. 3Therefore the Lord saide, My Spirit shall not alway striue with man, because he is but flesh, and his dayes shalbe an hundreth and twentie yeeres. 4There were gyants in the earth in those dayes: yea, and after that the sonnes of God came vnto the daughters of men, and they had borne them children, these were mightie men, which in olde time were men of renoume. 5When the Lord sawe that the wickednesse of man was great in the earth, and all the imaginations of the thoughtes of his heart were onely euill continually, 6Then it repented ye Lord, that he had made man in the earth, and he was sorie in his heart. 7Therefore ye Lord said, I will destroy from the earth the man, whom I haue created, from man to beast, to the creeping thing, and to the foule of the heauen: for I repent that I haue made them. 8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. 9These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a iust and vpright man in his time: and Noah walked with God. 10And Noah begate three sonnes, Shem, Ham and Iapheth. 11The earth also was corrupt before God: for the earth was filled with crueltie. 12Then God looked vpon the earth, and beholde, it was corrupt: for all flesh had corrupt his way vpon the earth. 13And God said vnto Noah, An ende of all flesh is come before me: for the earth is filled with crueltie through them: and beholde, I wil destroy them with the earth. 14Make thee an Arke of pine trees: thou shalt make cabines in the Arke, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15And thus shalt thou make it: The length of the Arke shalbe three hundreth cubites, the breadth of it fiftie cubites, and the height of it thirtie cubites. 16A windowe shalt thou make in the Arke, and in a cubite shalt thou finish it aboue, and the doore of the Arke shalt thou set in the side thereof: thou shalt make it with the lowe, seconde and third roume. 17And I, beholde, I will bring a flood of waters vpon the earth to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life vnder the heauen: all that is in the earth shall perish. 18But with thee will I establish my couenant, and thou shalt goe into the Arke, thou, and thy sonnes, and thy wife, and thy sonnes wiues with thee. 19And of euery liuing thing, of all flesh two of euery sort shalt thou cause to come into the Arke, to keepe them aliue with thee: they shalbe male and female. 20Of the foules, after their kinde, and of the cattell after their kind, of euery creeping thing of the earth after his kinde, two of euery sort shall come vnto thee, that thou mayest keepe them aliue. 21And take thou with thee of all meate that is eaten: and thou shalt gather it to thee, that it may be meate for thee and for them. 22Noah therefore did according vnto all, that God commanded him: euen so did he.
Human Wickedness
1 # Job 1.6; 2.1 When the human race had spread all over the world, and daughters were being born, 2some of the heavenly beings#6.2, 6.4 heavenly beings; or sons of the gods; or sons of God. saw that these young women were beautiful, so they took the ones they liked. 3Then the LORD said, “I will not allow people to live for ever; they are mortal. From now on they will live no longer than 120 years.” 4#Num 13.33In those days, and even later, there were giants on the earth who were descendants of human women and the heavenly beings.#6.4, 6.2 heavenly beings; or sons of the gods; or sons of God. They were the great heroes and famous men of long ago.
5 # Mt 24.37; Lk 17.26; 1 Pet 3.20 When the LORD saw how wicked everyone on earth was and how evil their thoughts were all the time, 6he was sorry that he had ever made them and put them on the earth. He was so filled with regret 7that he said, “I will wipe out these people I have created, and also the animals and the birds, because I am sorry that I made any of them.” 8But the LORD was pleased with Noah.
9-10 # 2 Pet 2.5 This is the story of Noah. He had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. Noah had no faults and was the only good man of his time. He lived in fellowship with God, 11but everyone else was evil in God's sight, and violence had spread everywhere. 12God looked at the world and saw that it was evil, for the people were all living evil lives.
13God said to Noah, “I have decided to put an end to the whole human race. I will destroy them completely, because the world is full of their violent deeds. 14Build a boat for yourself out of good timber; make rooms in it and cover it with tar inside and out. 15Make it 133 metres long, 22 metres wide, and thirteen metres high. 16Make a roof#6.16 roof; or window. for the boat and leave a space of 44 centimetres between the roof and the sides. Build it with three decks and put a door in the side. 17I am going to send a flood on the earth to destroy every living being. Everything on the earth will die, 18but I will make a covenant with you. Go into the boat with your wife, your sons, and their wives. 19-20Take into the boat with you a male and a female of every kind of animal and of every kind of bird, in order to keep them alive. 21Take along all kinds of food for you and for them.” 22#Heb 11.7Noah did everything that God commanded.
