Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 9:11


9:11 There shall not any more be a flood - God had drowned the world once, and still it is as provoking as ever; yet he will never drown it any more, for he deals not with us according to our sins. This promise of God keeps the sea and clouds in their decreed place, and sets them gates and bars, Hitherto they shall come, #Job 38:10|,11. If the sea should flow but for a few days, as it doth twice every day for a few hours, what desolations would it make? So would the clouds, if such showers as we have sometimes seen, were continued long. But God by flowing seas, and sweeping rains, shews what he could do in wrath; and yet by preserving the earth from being deluged between both, shews what he can do in mercy, and will do in truth.


Discussion for Genesis 9

  • Irene123
    To Netlace - You have done the same thing you have said I did. Nothing in Gen. says the 'wine' from the ark. It says nothing about 'wine' - fermented or not and nothing about grapes. How do you know there was wine on the ark? This is just an observation; no judging; please believe that.
  • Netlace
    RNM I agree 100 with you, would love to here more of your idea of the earth. Most know it is not a spinning marble chasing the sun, headed for hurcules...... Or I sure hope they do.... Bible proves it is stable.
  • Netlace
    The changing of grape juice to wine would occur quickly after the flood vs before because of the fall of the canopy. Whether the wine was leftover from before the flood or after, the new conditions of earth was new to Noah. I don't believe the age of his grandson is disclosed so time unknown. But prior to the flood wine kept a long time as unfermented. Noah walked with God, this was unintentional.
  • Netlace
    Irene123 ,, The reason for Noah becoming "drunk" is the wine had fermented because of the year in the ark. Someone who is not used to strong drink would easily become intoxicated. I am only aware of one occasion. He did not turn to drunken-ness. Please do not add such things, others may believe it to be truth...
  • Irene123
    To Charity eze - You need to KNOW - God is in CONTROL of everything - even our words. Noah was God's man - even though he turned to drunkenness after the flood; God still honored him. No one knows what Ham did, but- it was awful. God honored Noah's curse, and ONLY God had power to put it into effect. We have no power. Why Canaan? I have no answer for that. THAT - is God's business, not mine.
  • Irene123
    To Susan on Genesis ch. 9 -- I agree with you on that .................
