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 abeautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, "1My Spirit shall not bstrive with man forever, c2because he also is flesh; dnevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years." 4 The 3Nephilim 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 4every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually . 6 5The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was 6grieved ein His heart. 7 The LORD said, "7I 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 fsky; for 8I am sorry that I have made them." 8 But 9Noah 10found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
