Genesis Chapter 6

Genesis 6:1 The number of people on earth continued to increase. When these people had daughters.

Genesis 6:2 Some of the angels saw that these daughters were beautiful, and they married the daughters that they wanted.

Genesis 6:3 Then the Lord said, People are only human. I will not let my Spirit be troubled by them forever. I will let them live only 120 years.

Genesis 6:4 In that time there were giants on earth. The giants were the children of the angels who had married the people’s daughters. The giants were very strong soldiers, and everyone knew about them.

Genesis 6:5 The Lord saw that the people on the earth were very evil. He saw that they thought only about evil things all the time.

Genesis 6:6 The Lord was sorry that he had made people on the earth. It made him very sad in his heart.

Genesis 6:7 So the Lord said, I will destroy all the people I created on the earth. I will destroy every person and every animal and everything that crawls on the earth. And I will destroy all the birds in the air, because I am sorry that I have made them.

Genesis 6:14 God told Noah, use gopher wood to build an ark. You must build rooms in the ark and put tar over the wood on the inside and the outside

Genesis 6:15 This is the size I want you to make the boat: 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high.

Genesis 6:16 Build a roof over the ark. Make openings like windows of 1 cubit between the roof and the sides. You must put a door on one side and make 3 floors on top of each other, a bottom floor, a middle floor and a top floor.

Genesis 6:17 Understand what I am telling you. I will bring a great flood of water on the earth. I will destroy all living things that live under heaven. Everything on the earth will die.

Genesis 6:18 I will make a special agreement with you. You, your wife, your sons, and their wives will all go into the boat.

Genesis 6:19 Also, you will take two of every living thing on the earth with you into the boat. Take a male and female of every kind of animal so that they might survive with you.

Genesis 6:20 Two of every kind of bird, animal, and creeping thing will come to you so that you might keep them alive.

Genesis 6:21 Also bring every kind of food into the boat, for you and for the animals.
