Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Genesis 6:7


6:7 I will destroy man - The original word is very significant. I will wipe off man from off the earth; as dirt is wiped off from a place which should be clean, and thrown to the dunghill. Or, I will blot out man from the earth, as those lines are blotted out of a book which displease the author, or as the name of a citizen is blotted out of the rolls of the freemen when he is disfranchised. Both man and beast the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air - These were made for man, and therefore must be destroyed with man. It repenteth me that I have made them - For the end of their creation also was frustrated: they were made that man might serve and honour God with them and therefore were destroyed, because he had served his lusts with them, and made them subject to vanity.

    Word; No, sorry, but you are wrong! "..all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and EVERY MAN:" there were NO sons of Cain, and no sons of anyone at all except of Noah. The Kenites were not descendants of Cain. There were some of the Canaanites, and of the Midianites, called by that name.
  • Word
    Disciple your wrong! 2 of EVERY FLESH on boat. Matthew 13:36-44 has Satan sending his children to earth, his followers that trailed after him in the first earth age and he sends his tares which are kenites. Cains descendants got on the boat because not only dose the word of God says it but God has all his children going through this test of the age of flesh to give everyone of them a chance.

    GENESIS 6:8 BUT NOAH FOUND GRACE IN THE EYES OF THE LORD -- RAY AND ALL -- PSALM 144:3 LORD WHAT IS MAN THAT THOU TAKEST KNOWLEDGE OF HIM OR THE SON OF THAT THOU MAKEST ACCOUNT OF HIM -- PSALM 45:2 THOU ART FAIRER THAN THE CHILDREN OF MEN GRACE IS POURED INTO THY LIPS THEREFORE GOD HATH BLESSED THEE FOR EVER -- PROVERBS 8:7 FOR MY MOUTH SHALL SPEAK TRUTH AND WICKEDNESS IS AN ABOMINATION TO MY LIPS

    Verse 5: God was able to read the hearts and thoughts of man and he found that they were evil. God was completely justified in bringing punishment upon them.
  • A disciple
    Word; you try to teach things that you don't understand, and consequently err. No one from the world of the beginning was in the ark with Noah and his family and the animals! All of Cain's descendants perished in the cataclysm; as did all the rest of mankind! You are confusing two different names, and not using Strong's correctly. There are very good old books which can help you learn more. Peace!
