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.
