6:1 And after a time, when men were increasing on the earth, and had daughters,
6:2 The sons of God saw that the daughters of men were fair; and they took wives for themselves from those who were pleasing to them.
6:3 And the Lord said, My spirit will not be in man for ever, for he is only flesh; so the days of his life will be a hundred and twenty years.
6:4 There were men of great strength and size on the earth in those days; and after that, when the sons of God had connection with the daughters of men, they gave birth to children: these were the great men of old days, the men of great name.
6:5 And the Lord saw that the sin of man was great on the earth, and that all the thoughts of his heart were evil.
6:6 And the Lord had sorrow because he had made man on the earth, and grief was in his heart.
6:7 And the Lord said, I will take away man, whom I have made, from the face of the earth, even man and beast and that which goes on the earth and every bird of the air; for I have sorrow for having made them.
6:8 But Noah had grace in the eyes of God.
6:9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was an upright man and without sin in his generation: he went in the ways of God.
6:10 And Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
6:11 And the earth was evil in God's eyes and full of violent ways.
6:12 And God, looking on the earth, saw that it was evil: for the way of all flesh had become evil on the earth.
6:13 And God said to Noah, The end of all flesh has come; the earth is full of their violent doings, and now I will put an end to them with the earth.
6:14 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood with rooms in it, and make it safe from the water inside and out.
6:15 And this is the way you are to make it: it is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide, and thirty cubits high.
6:16 You are to put a window in the ark, a cubit from the roof, and a door in the side of it, and you are to make it with a lower and second and third floors.
6:17 For truly, I will send a great flow of waters over the earth, for the destruction from under the heaven of all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything on the earth will come to an end.
6:18 But with you I will make an agreement; and you will come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you.
6:19 And you will take with you into the ark two of every sort of living thing, and keep them safe with you; they will be male and female.
6:20 Two of every sort of bird and cattle and of every sort of living thing which goes on the earth will you take with you to keep them from destruction.
6:21 And make a store of every sort of food for yourself and them.
6:22 And all these things Noah did; as God said, so he did.
