katapi HOME Luke 6:9-22 - Noah.  Gn.6.9-22

6 9 This is the story of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, the one blameless man of his time; he walked with God. 6 10 He had three sons, Shem, Ham and Japeth.

6 11 Now God saw that the whole world was corrupt Or ripe for destruction and full of violence. 6 12 In his sight the world had become corrupted, for all men had lived corrupt lives on earth. 6 13 God said to Noah, 'The loathsomeness Or end of all mankind has become plain to me, for through them the earth is full of violence. I intend to destroy them, and the earth with them. 6 14 Make yourself an ark with ribs of cypress; cover it with reeds and coat it inside and out with pitch. 6 15 This is to be its plan: the length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 6 16 You shall make a roof for the ark, giving it a fall of one cubit when complete; and put a door in the side of the ark, and build three decks, upper, middle, and lower. 6 17 I intend to bring the waters of the flood over the earth to destroy every human being that has the spirit of life; everything on earth shall perish. 6 18 But with you I will make a covenant, and you shall go into the ark, you and your sons, your wife and your sons' wives with you. 6 19 And you shall bring living creatures of every kind into the ark to keep them alive with you, two of each kind, a male and a female; 6 20 two of every kind of bird, beast, and reptile, shall come to you to be kept alive. 6 21 See that you take and store every kind of food that can be eaten; this shall be food for you and for them'. 6 22 Exactly as God had commanded him, so Noah did.
