Wesley's Notes for Genesis 6:8


6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord - This vindicates God's justice in his displeasure against the world, and shews that he had examined the character of every person in it, before he pronounced it universally corrupt; for there being one good man he smiled upon him.


Discussion for Genesis 6

  • P
    It took me and my neighbor 8 days to build a deck around my pool. Does anyone know how long it took to build the Ark? Where did Noah get all that wood? Did God provide blueprints ? I'm very impressed that a few people could build a gigantic structure like that without power tools and a calculator.

    Because of Adam and Eve's disobedience, humanity was punished. Because of Noah's complete obedience, humanity was saved. The consequences of their decisions are playing out even to this day. May this be a lesson to us to listen to God and not to the evil one.
  • Lorenzo
    God is disappointed in the creation of man because man does not follow the way in his likeness. God plans to destroy man and spare Noah,s life and his family. Because Noah was perfect in his generation God used him in his plans for the future.

    Jesus did say they neither marry nor or given in marriage but they are like the angels.
  • David
    God is Omnipotent and Omniscient, He is everywhere and He knows everything. From the creation of man He has known everything you would do and every sin you would commit and patiently waits for you to accept Him into your life so He doesn't remember your sins anymore. The choice is yours as God never forces Himself on you. Genesis is wonderful.
  • George Adams
    Was there a time when God did not see our sins
