Genesis 6:1-8

The Corruption of Mankind

1 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them,
2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever * they chose.
3 Then the LORD said, "1My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, 2because he also is flesh; nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years."
4 The 3Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward *, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that 4every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually *.
6 5The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was 6grieved in His heart.
7 The LORD said, "7I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for 8I am sorry that I have made them."
8 But 9Noah 10found favor in the eyes of the LORD.
