Noah's profile

‘The Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, “ I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth--men and animals and creatures that move across the ground, and the birds of the air -- for I am grieved that I have made them.’’ Genesis 6: 5-7

‘But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.’ Genesis 6:8

God said, “You are a righteous man, blameless, and you walk with me. All the others are not like you.”

Noah asked, “What do you want me to do?”

God replied, “I’m going to send a flood, because of all the sinful people on the earth. I want you to build an ark that is 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, 45 feet high, have three decks lower, middle and higher deck. Put a door on the side of the boat. Finally, Bring two of each kind of animal, land dwellers. Bring all the food you’ll need for you and the animals for forty days and forty nights.”

Noah said, “I will do as you command. But what about my sons and their wives?”

God answered, “I will only let them go, because they’re a part of your family.”

Noah said, “Thank you.”
