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

  • Ernie
    Noahs "DNA" had not been corrupted or His wife, she was the daughter of Enoch, they were still dealing with "Original Sin" hence the bringing of the 7 clean animals for sacrifice
  • Amwayi
    not necessarily fallen but they were the heavenly beings some of which dwelled amongst men
  • Fred Cook
    Verse 2 sates the son's of God took the daughters of men. Rickey S , stated that the sons of God, were the fallen angels. Is this correct ?
  • Michael C.
    Yes, Cheryl: in the whole context of the sentence, and of the whole chapter; it talks about what God saw as rejecting His Spirit, and eventually causing the utter corruption of the world. Look in Strong's concordance; the word translated Giants, literally means a Bully, or Tyrant; secondarily, Giant. Now put together the whole verse: they forsook God's Spirit to become great in this world! see v3!
  • Doug
    As it was in the days of Noah, SO SHALL IT BE in the days of the coming of the
    Son of man.
  • Ricky S
    Sons of God are the fallen Angels. There fornication with the women created the giants
