Genesis 6 (WEBP)

[1] When men began to multiply on the surface of the ground, and daughters were born to them,
[2] God’s sons saw that men’s daughters were beautiful, and they took any that they wanted for themselves as wives.
[3] Yahweh said, “My Spirit will not strive with man forever, because he also is flesh; so his days will be one hundred twenty years.”
[4] The Nephilim§ were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when God’s sons came in to men’s daughters and had children with them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
[5] Yahweh saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was continually only evil.
[6] Yahweh was sorry that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him in his heart.
[7] Yahweh said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the surface of the ground—man, along with animals, creeping things, and birds of the sky—for I am sorry that I have made them.”
[8] But Noah found favor in Yahweh’s eyes.
[9] This is the history of the generations of Noah: Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noah walked with God.
[10] Noah became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
[11] The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
[12] God saw the earth, and saw that it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
[13] God said to Noah, “I will bring an end to all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them and the earth.
[14] Make a ship of gopher wood. You shall make rooms in the ship, and shall seal it inside and outside with pitch.
[15] This is how you shall make it. The length of the ship shall be three hundred cubits,° its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.
[16] You shall make a roof in the ship, and you shall finish it to a cubit upward. You shall set the door of the ship in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third levels.
[17] I, even I, will bring the flood of waters on this earth, to destroy all flesh having the breath of life from under the sky. Everything that is in the earth will die.
[18] But I will establish my covenant with you. You shall come into the ship, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.
[19] Of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ship, to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female.
[20] Of the birds after their kind, of the livestock after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort will come to you, to keep them alive.
[21] Take with you some of all food that is eaten, and gather it to yourself; and it will be for food for you, and for them.”
[22] Thus Noah did. He did all that God commanded him.

Genesis 6 (KJVS)

[1] And it came to pass, when men H120 began H2490 (8689) to multiply H7231 (8800) on H5921 the face H6440 of the earth H127, and daughters H1323 were born H3205 (8795) unto them,
[2] That the sons H1121 of God H430 saw H7200 (8799) the daughters H1323 of men H120 that they H2007 [were] fair H2896; and they took H3947 (8799) them wives H802 of all which they chose H977 (8804).
[3] And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799), My spirit H7307 shall not always H5769 strive H1777 (8799) with man H120, for that he also H1571 (8677) H7683 (8800) [is] flesh H1320: yet his days H3117 shall be an hundred H3967 and twenty H6242 years H8141.
[4] There were giants H5303 in the earth H776 in those days H3117; and also after H310 that H3651, when H834 the sons H1121 of God H430 came in H935 (8799) unto the daughters H1323 of men H120, and they bare H3205 (8804) [children] to them, the same H1992 [became] mighty men H1368 which [were] of old H5769, men H582 of renown H8034.
[5] And GOD H3068 saw H7200 (8799) that the wickedness H7451 of man H120 [was] great H7227 in the earth H776, and [that] every imagination H3336 of the thoughts H4284 of his heart H3820 [was] only H7535 evil H7451 continually H3117.
[6] And it repented H5162 (8735) the LORD H3068 that he had made H6213 (8804) man H120 on the earth H776, and it grieved H6087 (8691) him at H413 his heart H3820.
[7] And the LORD H3068 said H559 (8799), I will destroy H4229 (8799) man H120 whom I have created H1254 (8804) from the face H6440 of the earth H127; both man H120, and H5704 beast H929, and the creeping thing H7431, and the fowls H5775 of the air H8064; for it repenteth H5162 (8738) me that I have made H6213 (8804) them.
[8] But Noah H5146 found H4672 (8804) grace H2580 in the eyes H5869 of the LORD H3068.
[9] These [are] the generations H8435 of Noah H5146: Noah H5146 was a just H6662 man H376 [and] perfect H8549 in his generations H1755, [and] Noah H5146 walked H1980 (8694) with God H430.
[10] And Noah H5146 begat H3205 (8686) three H7969 sons H1121, Shem H8035, Ham H2526, and Japheth H3315.
[11] The earth H776 also was corrupt H7843 (8735) before H6440 God H430, and the earth H776 was filled H4390 (8735) with violence H2555.
[12] And God H430 looked H7200 (8799) upon the earth H776, and, behold, it was corrupt H7843 (8738); for all flesh H1320 had corrupted H7843 (8689) his way H1870 upon the earth H776.
[13] And God H430 said H559 (8799) unto Noah H5146, The end H7093 of all flesh H1320 is come H935 (8804) before me H6440; for the earth H776 is filled with H4390 (8804) violence H2555 through them H6440; and, behold, I will destroy H7843 (8688) them with H854 the earth H776.
[14] Make H6213 (8798) thee an ark H8392 of gopher H1613 wood H6086; rooms H7064 shalt thou make H6213 (8799) in H854 the ark H8392, and shalt pitch H3722 (8804) it within H1004 and without H2351 with pitch H3724.
[15] And this [is the fashion] which thou shalt make H6213 (8799) it [of]: The length H753 of the ark H8392 [shall be] three H7969 hundred H3967 cubits H520, the breadth H7341 of it fifty H2572 cubits H520, and the height H6967 of it thirty H7970 cubits H520.
[16] A window H6672 shalt thou make H6213 (8799) to the ark H8392, and in a cubit H520 shalt thou finish H3615 (8762) it above H4605; and the door H6607 of the ark H8392 shalt thou set H7760 (8799) in the side thereof H6654; [with] lower H8482, second H8145, and third H7992 [stories] shalt thou make H6213 (8799) it.
[17] And, behold H2009, I H589, even I, do bring H935 (8688) a flood H3999 of waters H4325 upon the earth H776, to destroy H7843 (8763) all flesh H1320, wherein [is] the breath H7307 of life H2416, from under H8478 heaven H8064; [and] every thing H3605 that [is] in the earth H776 shall die H1478 (8799).
[18] But with thee will I establish H6965 (8689) my covenant H1285; and thou shalt come H935 (8804) into H413 the ark H8392, thou H859, and thy sons H1121, and thy wife H802, and thy sons H1121’ wives H802 with thee.
[19] And of every living thing H2416 of all flesh H1320, two H8147 of every [sort] shalt thou bring H935 (8686) into the ark H8392, to keep [them] alive H2421 (8687) with thee; they shall be male H2145 and female H5347.
[20] Of fowls H5775 after their kind H4327, and of cattle H929 after their kind H4327, of every creeping thing H7431 of the earth H127 after his kind H4327, two H8147 of every [sort] shall come H935 (8799) unto thee, to keep [them] alive H2421 (8687).
[21] And take H3947 (8798) thou unto thee of all food H3978 that is eaten H398 (8735), and thou shalt gather H622 (8804) [it] to thee; and it shall be for food H402 for thee, and for them.
[22] Thus did H6213 (8799) Noah H5146; according to all that God H430 commanded H6680 (8765) him, so did H6213 (8804) he.

[16] a window dost thou make for the ark, and unto a cubit thou dost restrain it from above; and the opening of the ark thou dost put in its side,-lower, second, and third stories dost thou make it.
[17] ‘And I, lo, I am bringing in the deluge of waters on the earth to destroy all flesh, in which is a living spirit, from under the heavens; all that is in the earth doth expire.
