Genesis: Warning Of The Flood Gn 6: 5-22 By - Noah Fajardo
The main idea/important event event in Gn 6:5-22 is that God decided to wipe out the entire Earth because every person’s desire that their heart conceived was always nothing but evil. The first thing that happens is God made a covenant with Noah. God told Noah to make an ark of gopherwood, equip the ark with various compartments, and cover it inside and out with pitch. Next God told Noah to put the ark’s entrance on its side and make an opening for daylight and finish the ark a cubit above it. Finally God told Noah to bring two of every kind into the ark, one male and one female. A life lesson we can learn from this passage is to love one another and not to do evil works because you never know God can end the world again.
''I will wipe out from the earth the beings I have created, and not only the human beings, but also the animals and the crawling things and the birds of the air, for I regret that I made them'' (Gn 6:7)
''Make yourself an ark of gopherwood, equip the ark with various compartments, and cover it inside and out with pitch'' (Gn 6:14).
''Noah complied; he did just as God had commanded him'' (Gn 6:22).
To always love your neighbor and never be jealous of someone
