The Corruption of Mankind

1 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 beautiful; F88 and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, "My R133 Spirit shall not strive F89 with man forever, because R134 F90 he also is flesh; nevertheless F91 his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." 4 The Nephilim R135 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 every R136 intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 The R137 LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved R138 in F92 His heart. 7 The LORD said, "I R139 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 sky; F93 for I R140 am sorry that I have made them." 8 But Noah R141 found R142 favor in the eyes of the LORD.

9 These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous R143 man, blameless R144 F94 in his time; F95 Noah walked R145 with God. 10 Noah became F96 the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11 Now the earth was corrupt R146 in the sight of God, and the earth was filled R147 with violence. 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all R148 flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13 Then God said to Noah, "The R149 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 cover F97 it inside and out with pitch. 15 "This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, F98 its breadth fifty cubits, F98 and its height thirty cubits. F98 16 "You shall make a window F99 for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the F100 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, I, R150 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 My R151 covenant with you; and you R152 shall enter the ark--you and your sons and your wife, and your sons' wives with you. 19 "And R153 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 R154 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 R155 which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them." 22 Thus R156 Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.
