5 ADONAI saw that the people on earth were very wicked, that all the imaginings of their hearts were always of evil only.
6 ADONAI regretted that he had made humankind on the earth; it grieved his heart.
7 ADONAI said, "I will wipe out humankind, whom I have created, from the whole earth; and not only human beings, but animals, creeping things and birds in the air; for I regret that I ever made them."
