3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not [a]strive with man forever, [b]because he also is flesh; [c]nevertheless his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.”4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.6 The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved [d]in His heart.7 The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the [e]sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.”8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
Genesis 6:3Or rule in; some ancient versions read abide in
“Because you have done this, Cursed are you more than all cattle, And more than every beast of the field; On your belly you will go, And dust you will eat All the days of your life; 15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall [a]bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” 16 To the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply Your pain [b]in childbirth, In pain you will bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And he will rule over you.”
17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree about which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat from it’;
Cursed is the ground because of you; In [c]toil you will eat of it All the days of your life. 18 “Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you; And you will eat the [d]plants of the field; 19 By the sweat of your face You will eat bread, Till you return to the ground, Because from it you were taken; For you are dust, And to dust you shall return.”
