Genesis 6

BBE 1 And after a time, when men were increasing on the earth, and had daughters, NIV 1 When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, BBE 2 The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took wives for themselves from those who were pleasing to them. NIV 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. BBE 3 And the Lord said, My spirit will not be in man for ever, for he is only flesh; so the days of his life will be a hundred and twenty years. NIV 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." BBE 4 There were men of great strength and size on the earth in those days; and after that, when the sons of God had connection with the daughters of men, they gave birth to children: these were the great men of old days, the men of great name. NIV 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. BBE 5 And the Lord saw that the sin of man was great on the earth, and that all the thoughts of his heart were evil. NIV 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. BBE 6 And the Lord had sorrow because he had made man on the earth, and grief was in his heart. NIV 6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. BBE 7 And the Lord said, I will take away man, whom I have made, from the face of the earth, even man and beast and that which goes on the earth and every bird of the air; for I have sorrow for having made them. NIV 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." BBE 8 But Noah had grace in the eyes of God. NIV 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. BBE 9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was an upright man and without sin in his generation: he went in the ways of God. NIV 9 This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. BBE 10 And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. NIV 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. BBE 11 And the earth was evil in God's eyes and full of violent ways. NIV 11 Now the earth was corrupt in God's sight and was full of violence. BBE 12 And God, looking on the earth, saw that it was evil: for the way of all flesh had become evil on the earth. NIV 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. BBE 13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come; the earth is full of their violent doings, and now I will put an end to them with the earth. NIV 13 So God said to Noah, "I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. BBE 14 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood with rooms in it, and make it safe from the water inside and out. NIV 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. BBE 15 And this is the way you are to make it: it is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high. NIV 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. BBE 16 You are to put a window in the ark, a cubit from the roof, and a door in the side of it, and you are to make it with a lower and second and third floors. NIV 16 Make a roof for it and finish the ark to within 18 inches of the top. Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. BBE 17 For truly, I will send a great flow of waters over the earth, for the destruction from under the heaven of all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything on the earth will come to an end. NIV 17 I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. BBE 18 But with you I will make an agreement; and you will come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. NIV 18 But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark--you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you. BBE 19 And you will take with you into the ark two of every sort of living thing, and keep them safe with you; they will be male and female. NIV 19 You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. BBE 20 Two of every sort of bird and cattle and of every sort of living thing which goes on the earth will you take with you to keep them from destruction. NIV 20 Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. BBE 21 And make a store of every sort of food for yourself and them. NIV 21 You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them." BBE 22 And all these things Noah did; as God said, so he did. NIV 22 Noah did everything just as God commanded him.
