Genesis 6:1-22 NIV

Wickedness in the World

1When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 

2 the sons of GOD saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose.

3Then The LORD Said,

“MY SPIRIT Will Not Contend with humans forever, for they are mortal ; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

4The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of GOD went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

5 The LORD Saw how great the wickedness of the 

human race had become on the earth, and that every 

inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was 

only evil all the time.

6The LORD Regretted that HE Had Made human beings 

on the earth, and HIS Heart Was Deeply Troubled. 

7So The LORD Said,

“I Will Wipe from the face of the earth the human race I Have Created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—

For I Regret that I Have Made them. 

8But Noah found favor In The Eyes of The LORD.

Noah and the Flood

9This is the account of Noah and his family.

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and 

he walked faithfully with GOD.

10Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

11Now the earth was corrupt In GOD’S Sight and was full of violence. 12 GOD Saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 

13So GOD Said to Noah, 

“I AM Going To Put an end to all people, for the earth is 

filled with violence because of them. I AM Surely 

Going To Destroy both them and the earth. 

14So make yourself an ark of cypressc wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out.

15This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high.d 

16Make a roof for it, leaving below the roof an opening one cubite high all around.f Put a door in the side of the ark and make lower, middle and upper decks. 

17I AM Going To Bring floodwaters on the earth To 

Destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that 

has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will 


18But I Will Establish MCovenant with you, and you 

will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife 

and your sons’ wives with you. 

19You are to bring into 

the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to 

keep them alive with you. 

20Two of every kind of bird, 

of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature 

that moves along the ground will come to you to be 

kept alive.

 21You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten 

and store it away as food for you and for them.”

22Noah did everything Just As GOD Commanded him.
