Genesis 6

6
There were big, strong fighting men
1The people on the earth kept on having lots of kids, and those kids grew up and kept on having more kids, so after some time there were lots of people on the earth. And some people had very pretty daughters.
2There were some men that everyone called the Sons of God. They looked at the pretty young women, then they picked out the women they wanted, and they married them. 3God looked at everything that was happening. He said, “I gave people their breath, but I will not let it stay in them for ever. They are just people. They will live for only 120 years.”
4Those men that were called the Sons of God, they slept with the pretty women, like men usually sleep with their wives, and then those women had kids called Nefalim. Those Nefalim kids grew up to be big, strong fighting men. They were the great fighters in the stories from a long time ago.#Numbers 13:33
People kept on doing bad things
5God looked at the people on the earth, and he saw them doing lots of bad things. He knew the way they were thinking. They were thinking bad things all the time. God saw that the people were very bad. 6So God was feeling sad. He really felt no good inside. He thought to himself, “I should not have made all these people.”
7And God said, “These people keep on doing bad things, and that makes me really sad. I’m sorry that I made them. I’m sorry I made everything on the earth. I want to finish up everything. I want to kill all the people I made, and I want to kill all the animals on earth, the big animals, and the little animals, and even the animals that crawl around on the ground, and I want to kill all the birds that fly in the sky.”
8But God looked at the man called Noah, and Noah made God happy.
The story about Noah
9This is the story about Noah and his family. Noah was a good man. He didn’t do anything wrong. He was God’s friend, and he spent a lot of time with God.#2 Peter 2:5 10He had 3 sons. Their names were Shem, Ham, and Jafeth.
11-12Everyone on the earth kept on doing bad things. They were doing wrong to each other, and fighting and hurting each other. God looked down and saw all the bad things that were going on. The people were always doing things that were really bad.
13So God said to Noah, “Look, everyone is doing bad things and hurting each other. I’m going to kill everyone, and I will finish up everything on the earth.”
God told Noah to build a big boat
14Then God said to Noah, “Make a really big boat for yourself. Make it out of that strong wood called cypress. Make some rooms in the boat. And get some tar, and paint the inside of the boat, and paint the outside too. That will keep the water out of the boat.
15Listen, this is how big I want you to make the boat. It has to be 140 metres long, and 23 metres wide, and 13½ metres high. 16I want you to make a roof for that boat, but leave ½ a metre between the top of the walls and the roof, all around the top of the boat. And put a door in the side of the boat. And make 3 floors in the boat, one floor on the bottom and the other 2 floors upstairs.
17You see, soon I will bring a lot of flood water, and it will cover the earth, and everything that is on the earth will die. Everything that breathes air will die, wherever they live. 18But don’t worry. I’m making a strong promise to you, that I will look after you. I will look after you, and your wife, and all your kids, and their wives too. You all have to go into that boat.#1 Peter 3:20
19And you have to bring lots of animals into that boat too. Every sort of animal that is on the earth has to go into that boat, so that they will stay alive in the big flood. Get one male and one female of each sort of those animals, and take them into the boat with you. You see, you have to keep those animals alive. 20And you have to do the same thing for all those different sorts of birds. Get one male and one female of all of those birds. And you have to do the same thing for all those animals that crawl around on the ground. You have to get one male and one female of all those animals too. I will get 2 of every sort of animal to come to you, so you can keep them alive.
21And you have to gather up lots of food, all the sorts of food that people eat, and all the things that animals eat too. You have to put it all in the boat, so that you will all have enough food.”
22Then Noah did all of that. He did everything that God told him to do.#Hebrews 11:7

2That the sons of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore [children] to them, the same [became] mighty [tyrannical] men which [were] of old, men of renown (great reputation; being well-known) [reputation].
5And GOD-Yehōvihh [THE FATHER] saw that the wickedness of man [was] great in the earth, and [that] every imagination of the thoughts of his heart [was] only evil continually.
6And it repented the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents [I am repentant] me that I have made them.
8But Noach (Rest, Consolation) found grace in the eyes of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate).
9These [are] the generations of Noach (Rest, Consolation): Noach (Rest, Consolation) was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, and Noach (Rest, Consolation) walked with God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered].
10And Noach (Rest, Consolation) begat (to be father of; be ancestor of) three sons, Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)), Ham (hot, heat, brown), and Yefet (enlarged; fair; persuading).
11The earth also was corrupt before God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered], and the earth was filled with violence.
12And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] said unto Noach (Rest, Consolation), The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
14Make youi an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall youi make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch.
15And this [is the fashion] which youi shall make it [of]: The length of the ark [shall be] three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
16A window shall youi make to the ark, and in a cubit shall youi finish it above; and the door of the ark shall youi set in the side thereof; [with] lower, second, and third [stories] shall youi make it.
17And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life, from under heaven; [and] everything that [is] in the earth shall die.
18But with youi will I establish my covenant; and youi shall come into the ark, youi, and youri sons, and youri wife, and youri sons’ wives with youi.
19And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every [sort] shall youi bring into the ark, to keep [them] alive with youi; they shall be male and female.
20Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto youi, to keep them alive.
21And take youi unto youi of all food that is eaten, and youi shall gather it to youi; and it shall be for food for youi, and for them.
22In the following manner did Noach (Rest, Consolation); according to all that God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] commanded him, so did he.
