Today’s F260 Bible reading:  Genesis 6-7

6:1 When humankind began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2the sons of God saw that the daughters of humankind were beautiful. Thus they took wives for themselves from any they chose. 3So the Lord said, “My Spirit will not remain in humankind indefinitely, since they are mortal. They will remain for 120 more years.” 4The Nephilim were on the earth in those days (and also after this) when the sons of God would sleep with the daughters of humankind, who gave birth to their children. They were the mighty heroes of old, the famous men. 5But the Lord saw that the wickedness of humankind had become great on the earth. Every inclination of the thoughts of their minds was only evil all the time. 6The Lord regretted that he had made humankind on the earth, and he was highly offended. 7So the Lord said, “I will wipe humankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—everything from humankind to animals, including creatures that move on the ground and birds of the air, for I regret that I have made them.” 8But Noah found favor in the sight of the Lord. 9This is the account of Noah. Noah was a godly man; he was blameless among his contemporaries. He walked with God. 10Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11The earth was ruined in the sight of God; the earth was filled with violence. 12God saw the earth, and indeed it was ruined, for all living creatures on the earth were sinful. 13So God said to Noah, “I have decided that all living creatures must die, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Now I am about to destroy them and the earth. 14Make for yourself an ark of cypress wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it with pitch inside and out. 15This is how you should make it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. 16Make a roof for the ark and finish it, leaving 18 inches from the top. Put a door in the side of the ark, and make lower, middle, and upper decks. 17I am about to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy from under the sky all the living creatures that have the breath of life in them. Everything that is on the earth will die, 18but I will confirm my covenant with you. You will enter the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19You must bring into the ark two of every kind of living creature from all flesh, male and female, to keep them alive with you. 20Of the birds after their kinds, and of the cattle after their kinds, and of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you so you can keep them alive. 21And you must take for yourself every kind of food that is eaten, and gather it together. It will be food for you and for them.” 22And Noah did all that God commanded him—he did indeed. 7:1 The Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, for I consider you godly among this generation. 2You must take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, the male and its mate, two of every kind of unclean animal, the male and its mate, 3and also seven pairs of every kind of bird in the sky, male and female, to preserve their offspring on the face of the entire earth. 4For in seven days I will cause it to rain on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe from the face of the ground every living thing that I have made.” 5And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him. 6Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters engulfed the earth. 7Noah entered the ark along with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives because of the floodwaters. 8Pairs of clean animals, of unclean animals, of birds, and of everything that creeps along the ground, 9male and female, came into the ark to Noah, just as God had commanded him. 10And after seven days the floodwaters engulfed the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month—on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst open and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12And the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights. 13On that very day Noah entered the ark, accompanied by his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, along with his wife and his sons’ three wives. 14They entered, along with every living creature after its kind, every animal after its kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, everything with wings. 15Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life came into the ark to Noah. 16Those that entered were male and female, just as God commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in. 17The flood engulfed the earth for 40 days. As the waters increased, they lifted the ark and raised it above the earth. 18The waters completely overwhelmed the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the waters. 19The waters completely inundated the earth so that even all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered. 20The waters rose more than 20 feet above the mountains. 21And all living things that moved on the earth died, including the birds, domestic animals, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all humankind. 22Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23So the Lord destroyed every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, including people, animals, creatures that creep along the ground, and birds of the sky. They were wiped off the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark survived. 24The waters prevailed over the earth for 150 days. (NET Bible)
