The Corruption of Mankind1 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were ▼
▼ Lit goodbeautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, b “My Spirit shall not ▼
▼ Or rule in; some ancient versions read abide instrive with man forever, ▼
▼ Or in his going astray he is flesh, e because he also is flesh; ▼
▼ Or thereforenevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 The g 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 the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that h every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 i The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was j grieved ▼
▼ Lit toin His heart. 7 The Lord said, l “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 ▼
▼ Lit heavenssky; for n I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But o Noah p found favor in the eyes of the Lord. 9 These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a q righteous man ▼
▼ Lit complete, perfect; or having integrity, s blameless in his ▼
▼ Lit generationstime; Noah u walked with God. 10 Noah ▼
▼ Lit begotbecame the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 Now the earth was w corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was x filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for y all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah z “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 shall ▼
▼ Or pitchcover it inside and out with pitch. 15 “This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred ▼ cubits, its breadth fifty ▼ cubits, and its height thirty ▼ cubits. 16 “You shall make a ▼
▼ Or roofwindow for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from ▼
▼ 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 “Behold, ag I, even 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 perish. 18 “But I will establish ah My covenant with you; and ai you shall enter the ark— you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 aj “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 ak “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 al food which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them.” 22 am Thus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.
