Genesis 8:18

Genesis 8:18

And Noah went forth
Being obedient to the divine command, and no doubt with great pleasure in his countenance, and with a heart full of thankfulness for so great a deliverance;

and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
in all eight persons, and no more were saved in the ark, as Peter observes, ( 1 Peter 3:20 ) and the Arabic writers say F1, Noah and his sons built a city near the place where they came out of the ark, and called it Themanin, giving this as a reason of the name, we are eight, that is, who have escaped; so Berosus says F2, that the earth being dried of the waters, there were then only eight men in Armenia, from whence all mankind sprung.
