Noah: Let it be said of you too…

Adam’s Descendants to Noah – Chapter 5

Adam, then Seth, then Enosh, then Kenan, then Mahalalel, then Jared, then Enoch, then Methuselah, Lamech, Noah.  Noah didn’t have Shem, Ham, and Japheth until he was 500 years old!

Interesting in genealogy, only with Enoch does the genealogy stop to say “Enoch walked with God…” and “Enoch walked with God and then he was not, for God took him.”

Life span of man cut in half after flood (from 900 to 450ish), then halved again 4 generations later (from 450 to 225ish).

Increasing Corruption on Earth – Chapter 6

“The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that EVERY intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And the Lord was SORRY that he had made man on the earth, and it GRIEVED him to his HEART.”

The sadness must have been overwhelming.  Watching ONE kid go south is tough, let alone ALL of them.

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.  It was said, “Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation.  Noah WALKED with God.”

It says, “for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth” and “The earth was filled with violence.”

How did that happen?  God then gives Noah specific instructions on building the ark and mentions a coming covenant.
