Introduction

\\INTRODUCTION TO GENESIS 6\\

This chapter gives an account of the wickedness of the old world, both
among the profane and the professors of religion, which was taken
notice of and resented by God, upon which he determined the destruction
of it, \\#Ge 6:1-7\\ only one man, Noah, is excepted, who found favour
with God, and whose character is given, \\#Ge 6:8-10\\ and to whom was
observed by God the general corruption of the earth, \\#Ge 6:11-13\\
and to whom he gave orders and directions for the building an ark for
himself, and his family, being determined to destroy the earth with a
flood, and all creatures in it, \\#Ge 6:14-17\\ only he would preserve
him and his wife, his three sons and their wives, and two of every
living creature, for which, and for himself and his family, he was to
take food into the ark when built, \\#Ge 6:18-21\\ and the chapter is
concluded with observing, that Noah did as he was commanded,
\\#Ge 6:22\\.
