Warning of the Flood/ Preparation for the flood Gn 6:5-22
The main idea/important event in Gn 6: 5-22 is sin got out of control and God wanted to start over. The first thing that happens is that God recognizes that sin started getting out of control and decides to destroy the human beings, animals, and all things with the earth. Next, God tells Noah to build an ark and how to create it to protect himself and his family. Finally, God commanded Noah to take one male and one female of every kind of creation with him to keep them alive and provide himself and the others with food to keep themselves alive. The lesson is to stop sin before it gets out of control.
"When the Lord saw how great the wickedness of human beings was on earth, and how every desire that their heart conceived always nothing but evil, the Lord regretted making human beings on the earth, and his heart was grieved" (Gn 6:5-6).
" God said to Noah: I see that the end of all mortals has come for the earth is full of lawlessness because of them. So I am going to destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of gopherwood, equip the ark with various compartments," (Gn 6:13-14a).
"I will establish my covenant with you. You shall go into the ark, you and your sons, your wife and your sons' wives with you. Of all living creatures you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, one male and one female , to keep them alive along with you" (Gn 18a-19).
The lesson is to stop sin before it gets out of control.
