  • God grieved in His heart about the wickedness and decided that He would destroy all living beings. (Genesis 6:6-7, 13)
  • But Noah found favor in God's eyes.  Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time, and he walked with God. (Genesis 6:8-9)
  • God gave specific instructions for Noah to build a large boat (called an ark) for Noah, his family and certain animals to go into...to be saved from the worldwide flood that God would send. (Genesis 6:14-21)
  • Noah did all that God commanded. (Genesis 6:22)
  • God told Noah to enter the ark...he, his family and the specific animals.  Then God sent the worldwide flood. (Genesis 7)
