Genesis 6:1-22, NLT
A World Gone Wrong
1Then the people began to multiply on the earth, and daughters were born to them.
4In those days, and for some time after, giant Nephilites lived on the earth, for whenever the sons of God had intercourse with women, they gave birth to children who became the heroes and famous warriors of ancient times.
5The Lord observed the extent of human wickedness on the earth, and he saw that everything they thought or imagined was consistently and totally evil.
The Story of Noah
9This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.
11Now God saw that the earth had become corrupt and was filled with violence.
17“Look! I am about to cover the earth with a flood that will destroy every living thing that breathes. Everything on earth will die.
22So Noah did everything exactly as God had commanded him.
