3 And Yahweh
said, “My Spirit shall not abide with humankind forever in that he
is also flesh. And his days shall be one hundred and twenty
years.” 4 The Nephilim
were upon the earth in those days, and also afterward,
when the sons of God went into the daughters of humankind, and
they bore children to them.
5 And Yahweh saw that the evil of humankind was great upon the earth, and every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was always only evil. 6 And Yahweh regretted that he had made humankind on the earth, and he was grieved in his heart. 7 And Yahweh said, “I will destroy humankind whom I created from upon the face of the earth, from humankind, to animals, to creeping things, and to the birds of heaven, for I regret that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of Yahweh.
9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, without defect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 And the earth was corrupted before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before me, for the earth was filled with violence because of them. Now, look, I am going to destroy them along with the earth. 14 Make for yourself an ark of cypress wood; you must make the ark with rooms, then you must cover it with pitch, inside and outside. 15 And this is how you must make it: the length of the ark, three hundred cubits; its width fifty cubits; its height, thirty cubits. 16 You must make a roof for the ark, and finish it to a cubit above. And as for the door of the ark, you must put it in its side. You must make it with a lower, second, and a third deck.
17 And I, behold, I am about to bring the flood waters over the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. 18 And I will establish my covenant with you, and you must go into the ark—you, and your sons, and your wife, and the wives of your sons with you. 19 And of every living thing, from all flesh, you must bring two from every kind into the ark to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female...
6 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood waters came upon the earth. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, and of animals which are not clean, and of the birds, and everything that creeps upon the ground, 9 two of each went to Noah, into the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it happened that after seven days the waters of the flood came over the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month—on that day all the springs of the great deep were split open, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain came upon the earth forty days and forty nights...
17 And the flood came forty days and forty nights upon the earth. And the waters increased, and lifted the ark, and it rose up from the earth. 18 And the waters prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth. And the ark went upon the surface of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed overwhelmingly[p] upon the earth, and they covered all the high mountains which were under the entire heaven. 20 The waters swelled fifteen cubits above the mountains, covering them...
24 And the waters prevailed over the earth one hundred and fifty days.
32 And they
presented the report of the land that they explored to the
Israelites, saying, “The land that we went through to explore is a land that eats its inhabitants, and all the
people whom we saw in its midst are men of great
size. 33 There we saw the Nephilim
(the descendants of Anak
came from the Nephilim), and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight,
and so we were in their eyes.”
