Bible: Genesis 6:5-8

6:5 But the Lord saw 1  that the wickedness of humankind had become great on the earth. Every inclination 2  of the thoughts 3  of their minds 4  was only evil 5  all the time. 6  6:6 The Lord regretted 7  that he had made humankind on the earth, and he was highly offended. 8  6:7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe humankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth – everything from humankind to animals, 9  including creatures that move on the ground and birds of the air, for I regret that I have made them.”

6:8 But 10  Noah found favor 11  in the sight of 12  the Lord.
