Noah's Ark Summary Of Gn 6:5-22 By: Carolina Bartolo
God recognizes that the generation of sins have gotten out of control and now he is sending a big flood to wipe out the sins of the world. God gave another chance to those who are faithful to Him. Noah and his family were the only humans who were saved because they are righteous. God gave Noah instructions to build an ark out of gopher wood, with various compartments. God says that everything that is not on the boat will be wiped out (die) in the big flood that is on its way. One male and female from every creation will be put into the ark and the creations will have a second chance. Noah follows God’s instructions and creates the ark and proceeds to put every single creation, male and female, into the boat.
"When the Lord saw how great the wickedness of human beings was on earth, and how every desire that their heart conceived was always nothing but evil, the Lord regretted making human beings on earth, and his heart was grieved," (Gn 6:5-6).
"I regret making human beings on earth, all they do is sin and sin."
"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," ( Gn 6:13). "You shall go into the ark, you and your sons, your wife and your sons' wives with you," (Gn 6:18b).
A big flood is coming to wipe out humanity, your family is to be saved.
"Of all living creatures you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, one male the female, to keep them alive along wth you," (Gn 6:19). "Noah complied; he did just as God had commanded him," (Gn 6:22).
