7And unto him thou gavest commandment to love thy way: which he transgressed, and immediately thou appointedst death in him and in his generations, of whom came nations, tribes, people, and kindreds, out of number. 8And every people walked after their own will, and did wonderful things before thee, and despised thy commandments. 9And again in process of time thou broughtest the flood upon those that dwelt in the world, and destroyedst them. 10And it came to pass in every of them, that as death was to Adam, so was the flood to these.11Nevertheless one of them thou leftest, namely, Noah with his household, of whom came all righteous men. 12And it happened, that when they that dwelt upon the earth began to multiply, and had gotten them many children, and were a great people, they began again to be more ungodly than the first. 13Now when they lived so wickedly before thee, thou didst choose thee a man from among them, whose name was Abraham.
