Genesis 6:1-8 (World English Bible)

View In My Bible
1 It happened, when men began to multiply on the surface of the ground, and daughters were born to them, 2 that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose. 3 Yahweh said, "My spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; yet will his days be one hundred twenty years." 4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when God's sons came to men's daughters. They bore children to them: the same were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. 5 Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart. 7 Yahweh said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground; man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them." 8 But Noah found favor in Yahweh's eyes.
