Genesis 6

6
Evil Inclination of All Humanity
1Now when humankind began to multiply on the face of the ground and daughters were born to them,
2then the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were good and they took for themselves wives, any they chose.
3Then Adonai said, “My Spirit will not remain with humankind forever, since they are flesh. So their days will be 120 years.
4The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, whenever the sons of God came to the daughters of men, and gave birth to them. Those were the mighty men of old, men of renown.
5Then Adonai saw that the wickedness of humankind was great on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of their heart was only evil all the time.
6So Adonai regretted that He made humankind on the earth, and His heart was deeply pained.
7So Adonai said, “I will wipe out humankind, whom I have created, from the face of the ground, from humankind to livestock, crawling things and the flying creatures of the sky, because I regret that I made them.”
8But Noah found favor in Adonai’s eyes.
9These are the genealogies of Noah. Noah was a righteous man. He was blameless among his generation. Noah continually walked with God.
10Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.
11Now the earth was ruined before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12God saw the earth, and behold it was ruined because all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
Instructions for the Ark
13Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh is coming before Me, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Behold, I am about to bring ruin upon them along with the land.
14Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood. You shall make the ark with compartments and smear pitch on it, both inside and out.
15Now this is how you shall make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.
16You shall make a roof for the ark, and you shall finish it to within a cubit from the top. You shall put the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third stories.
17Now I am about to bring the flood—water upon the land—to destroy all flesh in which is the spirit of life from under the sky. Everything that is on the land will perish.
18But I will establish My covenant with you. So you shall come into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.
19Also of every living thing, of all flesh, you shall bring two of everything—male and female—into the ark to keep alive with you.
20Of the flying creatures according to their kind, of the livestock according to their kind, of all the crawling creatures of the ground according to their kind—two of everything will come to you to keep them alive.
21As for you: take for yourself every kind of edible food and gather it to yourself. It will be food for you and for them.”
22So Noah did according to all that God commanded him; he did so exactly.

Bereshis 6

6
1And it came to pass, when HaAdam began to multiply on the face of ha'adamah, and banot were born unto them, 2That the bnei HaElohim saw the banot HaAdam that they were tovot; and they took them nashim of all which they chose. 3And Hashem said, My Ruach [Hakodesh] shall not always strive with Adam, for that he also is basar: yet his yamim shall be a hundred and twenty shanah. 4HaNefilim were on ha'aretz in those yamim; and also after that, when the bnei HaElohim came in unto the banot HaAdam, and they bore children to them, the same became gibborim which were of old, men of renown. 5And Hashem saw that the wickedness of HaAdam was great in ha'aretz and that every yetzer (inclination) of the machshevot (thoughts) of his lev was only rah (evil) continually. 6And Hashem relented that He had made HaAdam on ha'aretz, and He was hurt in His lev. 7And Hashem said, I will wipe out HaAdam whom I have created from the face of ha'adamah; both Adam, and Behemah, and the Remes and the Oph HaShomayim; for I relent that I have made them. 8But Noach found chen (grace, unmerited favor) in the eyes of Hashem. 9These are the toldot of Noach; Noach was an ish tzaddik and tamim among those of his time, and Noach's halachah was with HaElohim. 10And Noach fathered three banim: Shem, Cham, and Yephet. 11Ha'aretz also was corrupt before HaElohim, and ha'aretz was filled with chamas. 12And Elohim looked upon ha'aretz, and, hinei, it was corrupt; for kol basar had corrupted his derech upon ha'aretz. 13And Elohim said unto Noach, The ketz (end) of kol basar is come before Me; for ha'aretz is filled with chamas because of them; and, hineni, I will destroy them with ha'aretz. 14Make thee a tevah (ark) of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the tevah (ark), and shalt coat it within and without with tar. 15And this is how thou shalt build it: the length of the tevah (ark) shall be three hundred cubits, the width of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16A roof shalt thou make to the tevah (ark), and thou shalt finish it to a cubit from the top; and the door of the tevah (ark) shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third decks shalt thou make it. 17And, hineni, I, even I, do bring a mabbul of waters upon ha'aretz, to destroy kol basar, wherein is the ruach chayyim, from under Shomayim; and everything that is in ha'aretz shall perish. 18But with thee will I establish My brit (covenant); and thou shalt come into the tevah (ark), thou, and thy banim, and thy isha, and the nashim of thy banim with thee. 19And of every living thing of kol basar, two of every kind shalt thou bring into the tevah (ark), to keep them alive with thee; they shall be zachar and nekevah. 20Of birds after their kind, and of behemah after their kind, of every remes of ha'adamah after its kind, two of every kind shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for ochel for thee, and for them. 22Thus did Noach; according to all that Elohim commanded him, so did he.
