1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, 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 that they chose. 3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not strive with man for ever, 4d for that he also is flesh: 5yet shall his days be an hundred and twenty years. 4 The 6 Nephilimd Ps. 78. 39 were 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 were the mighty men which were of old, the men of renown. 5 And the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil 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 ground; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and fowl of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah' found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

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, whatsoever moveth
upon the earth, after their families,
went forth out of the ark. 20 And
Noah builded an altar unto the
LORD; and took of every clean
beast, and of every clean fowl, and
offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21 And the LORD smelled the sweet
savour; and the LORD said in his
heart, I will not again curse the
ground any more for man's sake, for
that the imagination of man's heart
is evil from his youth; neither will I
again smite any more every thing
living, as I have done. 22 While the
earth remaineth, seedtime and har-
vest, and cold and heat, and summer
and winter, and "day and night shall
not cease. 1 And God blessed
Noah and his sons, and said unto
them," Be fruitful, and multiply,
and replenish the earth. 2 And the
fear of you and the dread of you shall
be upon every beast of the earth,
and upon every fowl of the air; with
all wherewith the ground teemeth,
and all the fishes of the sea, into your
hand are they delivered. 3 Every
moving thing that liveth shall be
food for you; as the green herb
have I given you all.
But flesh
with the life thereof, which is the
blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood, the blood of
your lives, will I require; at the
hand of every beast will I require
it: and at the hand of man, even a Ex. 21, 28.
at the hand of every man's brother,
will I require the life of man.
6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by e Ex. 21. 12,
man shall his blood be shed: for
in the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and mul-
tiply; bring forth abundantly in
the earth, and multiply therein.
