Then the Lord said, “(A)My Spirit will not [a]remain with man forever, [b](B)because he is also flesh; [c]nevertheless his days shall be 120 years.” The [d](C)Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of mankind, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of mankind was great on the earth, and that (D)every intent of the thoughts of [e]their hearts was only evil continually. So (E)the Lord was sorry that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was (F)grieved [f]in His heart. Then the Lord said, “(G)I will wipe out mankind whom I have created from the face of the land; mankind, and animals as well, and crawling things, and the birds of the sky. For (H)I am sorry that I have made them.” But (I)Noah (J)found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

  1. Genesis 2:7 Or soul

14 Then the Lord God said to the serpent,

(A)Because you have done this,
Cursed are you more than all the livestock,
And more than any animal of the field;
On your belly you shall go,
And (B)dust you shall eat
All the days of your life;
15 And I will [a](C)make enemies
Of you and the woman,
And of your [b]offspring and her [c]Descendant;
(D)He shall [d]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 [e]in childbirth,
In pain you shall (E)deliver children;
Yet your desire will be for your husband,
And (F)he shall 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’;

(G)Cursed is the ground because of you;
(H)With [f]hard labor you shall eat from it
All the days of your life.
18 Both thorns and thistles it shall grow for you;
Yet you shall eat the [g]plants of the field;
19 By the sweat of your face
You shall eat bread,
Until you (I)return to the ground,
Because (J)from it you were taken;
For you are dust,
And to dust you shall return.”
