It happened, when men began to multiply on the surface of the ground, and daughters were born to them,
that God's sons saw that men's daughters were beautiful, and they took for themselves wives of all that they chose.
The LORD said, "My spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; yet will his days be one hundred twenty years."
The Nefilim were in the eretz in those days, and also after that, when God's sons came to men's daughters. They bore children to them: the same were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the eretz, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
The LORD was sorry that he had made man on the eretz, and it grieved him in his heart.
The LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground; man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them."
But Noach found favor in the LORD's eyes.
This is the history of the generations of Noach. Noach was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noach walked with God.
Noach became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Yefet.
The eretz was corrupt before God, and the eretz was filled with violence.
God saw the eretz, and saw that it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the eretz.
God said to Noach, "The end of all flesh has come before me, for the eretz is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the eretz.
Make a teivah of gofer wood. You shall make rooms in the teivah, and shall seal it inside and outside with kofer.
This is how you shall make it. The length of the teivah will be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
You shall make a roof in the teivah, and to a cubit shall you finish it upward. You shall set the door of the teivah in the side of it. You shall make it with lower, second, and third levels.
I, even, I do bring the flood of waters on this eretz, to destroy all flesh having the breath of life from under the sky. Everything that is in the eretz will die.
But I will establish my covenant with you. You shall come into the teivah, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you.
Of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the teivah, to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female.
Of the birds after their kind, of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come to you, to keep them alive.
Take with you of all food that is eaten, and gather it to you; and it will be for food for you, and for them.
Thus Noach did. According to all that God commanded him, so he did.
