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.

    Hello, love the site, is very helpfull! i have a question: why sometimes the creator is called Lord and other times is called Lord God? Isnīt Moses talking about two different "people"? Thank you and God bless you.

    I believe that the fallen angels were angels like Satan. This God had to destroy them for their wickedness. It wasn't meant for angels and earth woman to mate. End of story it wasn't his plan so he had to end their wickedness.

    The Sons and Daughters of God is the person who admit thereselve that they are a sinner(Romans 3:10), repent from there sins(Acts 17:30) and knowing that Jesus Christ is there Lord and personal savior(John 1:12). If they receive Christ they will become his sons and daughters of God, and they receive "Eternal Life(John 10:28).

    I don't understand:
    who are the sons of God and daughters of men in Genesis chapter 6
  • Jerry Hatcher
    Gen 6:18 doesn't match your question. Gen 7:2 tells us how many of each kind of animal God said to put on the Ark. "Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female." The words "by sevens" means by 7 pairs (14 total). Of each pair is a male and female. The unclean was only 1 male
