The Nephilim and the Daughters of Men
1Now it happened, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them,
2that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were good in appearance; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose.
3Then Yahweh said, “My Spirit shall not #6.3: Or rule in; some ancient versions abide instrive with man forever #6.3: Or in his going astray he is fleshbecause he indeed is flesh; #6.3: Or thereforenevertheless his days shall be 120 years.”
4The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, 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.
5¶Then Yahweh saw that the evil of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6And Yahweh regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved #6.6: Lit toin His heart.
7And Yahweh said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the #6.7: Lit heavenssky; for I regret that I have made them.”
8But Noah found favor in the eyes of Yahweh.
The Generations of Noah
9¶These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, #6.9: Or having integrity; lit complete, perfectblameless among those in his generations; Noah walked with God.
10And Noah #6.10: Lit begotbecame the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11¶Now the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
13¶Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.
14“Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and you shall #6.14: Or pitchcover it inside and out with pitch.
15“Now this is how you shall make it: the length of the ark #6.15: Approx. 450 ft. long, 75 ft. wide, and 45 ft. high or 135 m, 23 m, and 14 m300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.
16“You shall make a #6.16: Or roofwindow for the ark, and complete it to one #6.16: A cubit was approx. 18 in. or 45 cmcubit from #6.16: Lit abovethe top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.
17“As for Me, behold I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall breathe its last.
18“But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.
19“And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.
20“Of the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.
21“As for you, take for yourself some of all food which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them.”
22Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.

Genesis 6

1And it came to pass when mankind began to multiply on the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2that the sons of God#GodHebrew: Elohim saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and took themselves wives of all that they chose.
3And Jehovah said, My Spirit shall not always plead with Man; for he indeed is flesh; but his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.
4In those days were the giants on the earth, and also afterwards, when the sons of God#GodHebrew: Elohim had come in to the daughters of men, and they had borne children to them; these were the heroes, who of old were men of renown. 5And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of Man was great on the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart only evil continually.
6And Jehovah repented that he had made Man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. 7And Jehovah said, I will destroy Man, whom I have created, from the earth — from man to cattle, to creeping things, and to fowl of the heavens; for I repent that I have made them.
8But Noah found favour in the eyes of Jehovah. 9This is the history of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect amongst his generations: Noah walked with God#GodHebrew: Elohim 10And Noah begot three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11And the earth was corrupt before God#GodHebrew: Elohim and the earth was full of violence. 12And God#GodHebrew: Elohim looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted its way on the earth.
13And God#GodHebrew: Elohim said to Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is full of violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14Make thyself an ark of gopher wood: with cells shalt thou make the ark; and pitch it inside and outside with pitch. 15And thus shalt thou make it: let the length of the ark be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16A light shalt thou make to the ark; and to a cubit high shalt thou finish it above. And the door of the ark shalt thou set in its side: with a lower, second, and third story shalt thou make it. 17For I, behold, I bring a flood of waters on the earth, to destroy all flesh under the heavens in which is the breath of life: everything that is on the earth shall expire. 18But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt go into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. 19And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee: they shall be male and female. 20Of fowl after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of each shall go in to thee, to keep them alive. 21And take thou of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee, that it may be for food for thee and for them.
22And Noah did it; according to all that God#GodHebrew: Elohim had commanded him, so did he.
