The wickedness of the world.

3 And the Loud 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 cJiildren to them : the same became
mighty men, which were of old, men of re-

5 IT And God saw that the wickedness of
man was great in the earth, and that |1 every
* imagination of the thoughts of his heart was
only evil t continually.

6 And '"it repented the Lord that he had
made man on the earth, and it ^ grieved him
at his heart.

7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man
whom I have created from the face of the
earth ; t both man and beast, and the creep-
ing thing, and the fowls of the air ; for it re-
penteth me that I have made them.

8 But Noah ''found grace in the eyes of
the Lord.

9 IT These are the generations of Noah :
'Noah was a iust man, and |[ perfect in his
generations, and Noah ''walked with God.

10 And Noah begat three sons, 'Shem,
Ham, and Japheth.

1 1 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 cor-
rupted his way upon the earth.

13 And God said unto Noah, pThe end
of all flesh is come before me ; for the
earth is filled with violence through them :

flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy

under heaven : and every thing that is in the
earth shall die.

The beginning of the flood.

13 In the self-same day 'entered Noah, and
Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of
Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives
of his sons with them, into the ark :

14 ""They, and every beast after his kind,
and all the cattle after their kind, and every
creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth
after his kind, and every fowl after his kind,
every bird of every tsort.

15 And they "went in unto Noah into the
ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the
breath of life.

16 And they that went in, went in male
and female of all flesh, °as God had com-
manded him : and the Lord shut him in.

17 PAnd the flood was forty days upon the
earth : and the waters increased, and bare up
the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

18 And the waters prevailed, and were in-
creased greatly upon the earth: land the ark
went upon the face of the waters.

19 And the waters 'prevailed exceedingly
upon the earth: ""and all the high hills that
were under the whole heaven were covered.

20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters
prevail : and the mountains were covered.

21 ' And all flesh died that moved upon
the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of
beast, and of every creeping thing that creep-
eth upon the earth, and every man :

22 All in 'whose nostrils was fthe breath
of life, of all that was in the dry land,

23 And every living substance was de-
stroyed whichwas upon the face of the ground,
both man, and cattle, and the creeping things,
and the fowl of the heaven ; and they were
destroyed from the earth ; and "Noah only
remained alive, and they that were with him
in the ark.

24 "^ And the waters prevailed upon the
ear than hundred and fifty days.

on the seventeenth day of the month, upon
the mountains of Ararat.

5 And the waters tdecreased continually,
until the tenth month : in the tenth month, on
the first day of the month, were the tops of
the mountains seen.

6 IF And it came to pass at the end of forty
days, that Noah opened '"the window of the
ark which he had made :

7 And he sent forth a raven, which went
forth tto and fro, until the waters were dried
up from off the earth.

8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to
see if the waters were abated from off the
face of the ground.

9 But the dove found no rest for the sole
of her foot, and she returned unto him into
the ark ; for the waters were on the face of
the whole earth. Then he put forth his hand,
and took her, and t pulled her in unto him
into the ark.

10 And he stayed yet other seven days ;
and again he sent forth the dove out of the

11 And the dove came in to him in the
evening, and lo, in her mouth was an olive-
leaf pluckt off. So Noah knew that the wa-
ters were abated from off the earth.

12 And he stayed yet other seven days,
and sent forth the dove ; which returned not
again unto him any more.

13 H And it came to pass in the six hun-
dredth and first year, in the first month, the
first day of the month, the waters were dried
up from off" the earth : and Noah removed the
covering of the ark, and looked, and behold,
the face of the ground was dry.

14 And in the second month, on the seven
and twentieth day of the month, was the
earth dried.

15 IT And God spake unto Noah, saying,

16 Go forth of the ark, ^ thou, and thy wife,
and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.

17 Bring forth with thee ''every living thing
that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl,
a,nd of cattle, and of every creeping thing that
creepeth upon the earth ; that they may breed
abundantly in the earth, and 'be fruitful, and
multiply upon the earth.

18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and
his wife, and his sons' wives with him :

19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and
every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon
the earth, after their t kinds, went forth out
of- the ark.

20 1[ And Noah builded an altar unto the
Lord, and took of ■= every clean beast, and of
every clean fowl, and offered burnt-off"erings
on the altar.
