And the Lord saw that the sin of man was great on the earth,
and that all the thoughts of his heart were evil.
And the Lord had sorrow
because he had made man on the earth,
and grief was in his heart.
And the Lord said, I will take away man, whom I have made,
from the face of the earth,
even man and beast
and that which goes on the earth and every bird of the air;
for I have sorrow for having made them.
But Noah had grace in the eyes of God.
