NASB — Genesis 6 — KJV

The Corruption of Mankind

1 Now it came about, when men began to multiply on the face of the land, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were Ibeautiful; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, “aMy Spirit shall not Istrive with man forever, IIbbecause he also is flesh; IIInevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 The aNephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore [children] to them. Those were the mighty men who [were] of old, men of renown.

5 ¶ Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that aevery intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 aThe LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was bgrieved Iin His heart. 7 The LORD said, “aI will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the Isky; for bI am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But aNoah bfound favor in the eyes of the LORD.

13 ¶ Then God said to Noah, “aThe end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth. 14 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall Icover it inside and out with pitch. 15 This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred Icubits, its breadth fifty Icubits, and its height thirty Icubits. 16 You shall make a Iwindow for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from IIthe top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 Behold, aI, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish. 18 But I will establish aMy covenant with you; and byou shall enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 aAnd of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every [kind] into the ark, to keep [them] alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 aOf the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every [kind] will come to you to keep [them] alive. 21 As for you, take for yourself some of all afood which is edible, and gather [it] to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them.” 22 aThus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.

The wickedness of the world, which provoked God's wrath, and caused the flood.

1 ¶ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also [is] flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.

9 ¶ These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. 13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

The order, form, and end of the ark.

14 ¶ Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15 And this [is the fashion] which thou shalt make it [of]: The length of the ark [shall be] three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; [with] lower, second, and third [stories] shalt thou make it. 17 And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life, from under heaven; [and] every thing that [is] in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every [sort] shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep [them] alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20 Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every [sort] shall come unto thee, to keep [them] alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather [it] to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
