NIV - Genesis 6:1-10

The Flood

1 When men began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that these daughters of men were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with man forever, for he is mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.” 4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of the men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown. 5 The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The LORD was grived that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled of pain. 7 So the LORD said, “I will wipe mankind , whom I have created, from the face of the earth man and animals, and the creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air —for I am grieved that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD. 9 This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.

O Dilúvio

1 Quando os homens começaram a multiplicar-se na terra e lhes nasceram filhas, 2 os filhos de Deus viram que as filhas dos homens eram bonitas, e escolheram para si aquelas que lhes agradaram. 3 Então disse o SENHOR: “Por causa da perversidade do homemd, meu Espíritoe não contenderá com elef para sempre; ele só viverá cento e vinte anos”. 4 Naqueles dias havia nefilinsg na terra, e também posteriormente, quando os filhos de Deus possuíram as filhas dos homens e elas lhes deram filhos. Eles foram os heróis do passado, homens famosos. 5 O SENHOR viu que a perversidade do homem tinha aumentado na terra e que toda a inclinação dos pensamentos do seu coração era sempre e somente para o mal. 6 Então o SENHOR arrependeu-se de ter feito o homem sobre a terra, e isso cortoulhe o coração. 7 Disse o SENHOR: “Farei desaparecer da face da terra o homem que criei, os homens e também os grandes animais e os pequenos e as aves do céu. Arrependo-me de havê-los feito”. 8 A Noé, porém, o SENHOR mostrou benevolência.9 Esta é a história da família de Noé: Noé era homem justo, íntegro entre o povo da sua época; ele andava com Deus. 10 Noé gerou três filhos: Sem, Cam e Jafé. . . . . . . .
