King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 1 When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose . 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.
3 And the LORD said , My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh : yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 3 Then the LORD said, "My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; his days will be a hundred and twenty years."
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days--and also afterward--when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
5 And GOD 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. 5 The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time.
6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain.
7 And the LORD said , I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 7 So the LORD said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth--men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air--for I am grieved that I have made them."
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
