Berĕshith (Genesis) 6

6
1And it came to be, when men began to increase on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them,
2that the sons of Elohim saw the daughters of men, that they were good. And they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3And יהוה said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever in his going astray. He is flesh, and his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”
4The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.
5And יהוה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6And יהוה was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
7And יהוה said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the ground, both man and beast, creeping creature and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
8But Noaḥ found favour in the eyes of יהוה.
9This is the genealogy of Noaḥ. Noaḥ was a righteous man, perfect in his generations. Noaḥ walked with Elohim.
10And Noaḥ brought forth three sons: Shĕm, Ḥam, and Yapheth.
11And the earth was corrupt before Elohim, and the earth was filled with violence.
12And Elohim looked upon the earth and saw that it was corrupt – for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth –
13and Elohim said to Noaḥ, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. And see, I am going to destroy them from the earth.
14“Make yourself an ark of gopherwood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with a covering.#Pitch, tar or other.
15“And this is how you are to make it: The length of the ark is three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
16“Make a window for the ark, and complete it to a cubit from above. And set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks.
17“And see, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens – all that is on the earth is to die.
18“And I shall establish My covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.
19“And of all the living of all flesh, two of each, you are to bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you – a male and a female.
20“Of the birds after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, and of all creeping creatures of the ground after their kind, two of each are to come to you, to keep them alive.
21“As for you, take of all food that is eaten and gather it to yourself. And it shall be food for you and for them.”
22And Noaḥ did according to all that Elohim commanded him, so he did.

1And after that men began to be multiplied upon the earth, and daughters were born to them.
2The sons of God seeing the daughters of men, that they were fair, took themselves wives of all which they chose.
3And God said: My spirit shall not remain in man for ever, because he is flesh; and his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.
4Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.
5And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times,
6It repented him that he had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart,
7He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8But Noe found grace before the Lord.
9These are the generations of Noe. Noe was a just and perfect man in his generations; he walked with God.
10And he begot three sons, Sem, Cham, and Japheth.
11And the earth was corrupted before God, and was filled with iniquity.
12And when God had seen that the earth was corrupted (for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth),
13He said to Noe: The end of all flesh is come before me; the earth is filled with iniquity through them; and I will destroy them with the earth.
14Make thee an ark of timber planks: thou shalt make little rooms in the ark, and thou shalt pitch it within and without.
15And thus shalt thou make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits; the breadth of it fifty cubits; and the height of it thirty cubits.
16Thou shalt make a window in the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish the top of it; and the door of the ark thou shalt set in the side; with lower, middle chambers, and third stories shalt thou make it.
17Behold, I will bring the waters of a great flood upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, under heaven. All things that are in the earth shall be consumed.
18And I will establish my covenant with thee, and thou shalt enter into the ark; thou and thy sons, and thy wife, and the wives of thy sons with thee.
19And of every living creature of all flesh, thou shalt bring two of each sort into the ark, that they may live with thee: of the male sex, and the female.
20Of fowls according to their kind, and of beasts in their kind, and of every thing that creepeth on earth according to its kind; two of every sort shall go in with thee, that they may live.
21Thou shalt take unto thee of all food that may be eaten, and thou shalt lay it up with thee: and it shall be food for thee and them.
22And Noe did all things which God commanded him.
