Genesis 6

Thomson(i) 1 And it came to pass when the men began to be multiplied on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God seeing the daughters of men that they were fair, took to themselves wives of all whom they chose: 3 then the Lord God said, "My breath must not continue in these men to this age, because they are flesh; their days however, shall be an hundred and twenty years." 4 Now there were giants on the earth in those days, and after that when the sons of God went in unto the daughters of men and they bore to them. These were the giants of old, the men of renown. 5 So when the Lord God saw that the wickedness of the men on the earth was multiplied, and that every one was in his heart studiously and continually bent upon evils, 6 God was grieved that he had made man on the earth. 7 And God came to a determination and said, "I will blot out from the face of this earth the man I have made, both man and beast; both reptiles and birds of the air. For I am grieved that I made them. 8 But Noe found favour in the sight of the Lord God. 9 Now these are the generations of Noe. Noe was a just man; and being perfect in the tenor of his life, Noe pleased God. 10 And Noe had three sons, Sem, Cham, Japheth. 11 Now the earth was corrupt before God; and the earth was filled with iniquity. 12 And God beheld the earth and it was corrupt. Because all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth; 13 therefore the Lord God said to Noe, "The time of every man is come before me. Because the earth is filled with iniquity by their means, therefore behold I am going to destroy them and the earth. 14 Make therefore for thyself an ark of squared timber. Thou shalt make the ark with small apartments, and pitch it on the inside and outside with pitch. 15 And in this manner thou shalt make the ark. Three hundred cubits shall be the length of the ark, and fifty cubits the breadth, and thirty cubits the height thereof. 16 In building the ark thou shalt narrow the breadth and finish it above at a cubit. And thou shalt make the door of the ark out of the sides. With lower, second and third stories thou shalt make it. 17 Now behold I am going to bring a flood of water upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life under heaven, and all that are on the earth shall die; 18 and I will establish my covenant with thee. Thou therefore shalt go into the ark, thou and thy sons and thy wife and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of all the cattle, and of all the reptiles, and of all the wild beasts, even of all flesh thou shalt bring into the ark a pair of every sort, that thou mayest nourish them with thyself. They shall be a male with a female. 20 Of all the winged fowls according to kind, and of all the cattle according to kind, and of all the reptiles which creep on the earth according to their kind, pairs of every sort shall come to thee, a male with a female, to be fed with thee. 21 Thou shalt therefore take to thee of all the varieties of food which you eat, and collect it to thee, and it shall be for thee and for them to eat." 22 And Noe did all that the Lord God commanded him;
