Genisis 6

The time of Noah....

vs 2 has always been questioned.
Who exactly were the sons of God and the daughters of men?

vs 3 God set the years a man should live to be 120 years. This is way below what men were living to at that time.

vs 4 What exactly were the Nephilim?
This is also a verse that baffles scholars. We may never know this side of Heaven.

Every thought of man (of his heart) was wicked.

God was going to kill every man on the face of the Earth. But Noah found favor in God's eyes.

Noah and the flood

God told Noah to make an ark out of gopher wood. (Would love to know what wood that is comparable to now.) make it 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits tall.

God established a covenant with Noah. The people in the Ark were Noah and his wife, three sons; Shem, Ham, and Japeth and their wives.

Noah was commanded to bring in two of every animal and to store up food for them and the animals.

Vs 22. Noah did this, he did all that the Lord commanded him.

If we could all be so faithfull.
