Genesis 6
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And it was that when sons of men began to multiply on the face of the Earth and daughters were born to them, 2the Sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful and they took those women to them of all that they chose. 3And LORD JEHOVAH said: “My Spirit will not dwell in man for eternity because he is flesh and his days shall be a hundred and twenty years.” 4And giants were in the earth in those days, also after this, because the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they gave birth to the giants that were from of old, the Heroes of fame.

5And LORD JEHOVAH saw that the evil of man increased in the earth and every inclination of the reasonings of his heart was evil every day. 6And LORD JEHOVAH regretted that he had made Adam in the earth, and he was grieved in his heart. 7And LORD JEHOVAH said, “I shall wipe out the children of men that I have created from the face of the Earth, from the children of men and unto the animal and unto the creeping thing and unto the bird of the sky, because I am sorry that I have made them.”

8And Noah found favor in the eyes of LORD JEHOVAH.

9And these are the generations of Noah: Noah was a righteous and perfect man in his generations and Noah pleased God. 10And Noah begot three sons: Sheem and Kham and Yapeth.

11And the Earth was corrupted before God and the Earth was filled with evil. 12And God saw the Earth that it was corrupted because everybody had corrupted his way on the Earth.

13And God said to Noah, “The end of everybody has entered before me, because the Earth is filled with evil from before them; behold I shall destroy them with the Earth. 14Make for you an ark of the wood of acacia box wood; make it stories for the ark and smear it from outside and from inside with pitch. 15And thus make the length of the ark three hundred cubits and its width fifty cubits and its height thirty cubits. 16And make a window for the ark and a cubit above; finish it from above, and the door of the ark in its side; make a story below and make it a second and a third. 17And I, behold, I am bringing the flood waters on the Earth to destroy all flesh that has in it the Spiritbreath of life from under Heaven, and everyone that is in Earth will end. 18And I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark, you and your sons, and your wife, and the wives of your sons with you. 19And two of everything that lives of all flesh, bring to the ark to save with you; they shall be male and female. 20From the bird with its kind and from the beast with its kind and from every creeping thing of the Earth with its kinds, two by two of every one, they shall enter with you to the ark. 21And you take for yourselves from every food that is eaten, and gather to yourselves, and it will be yours and theirs for food.” 22And Noah did all that God commanded him; in this way he did.
