Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Genesis 6:1-13. In chapter six we learn that as men began to reproduce on the earth, and started having daughters. The sons of God were in awe of the daughters of men; and took as many wives as they chose.
The LORD was grieved and said, “My spirit will not always be with man, because he is human as well: now his days will be a 120 years.”
There were giants in the earth during that time. The sons of God had relationships with the daughters of men, and had children by them. They became mighty men of old, men of notoriety.
GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that all the thoughts of their heart were constantly evil.
The LORD regretted that he had created man. Their wickedness grieved his heart. The LORD decided that he would abolish man from the earth. Not only would he destroy man, but also the beast, creeping things, and fowls of the air; because it made him sad that he created them.
Noah was the only man living during this time that found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Noah walked with God. He was a just man, faultless among his peers. Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
The people of the earth had become immoral before God and the earth was full of violence. God beheld the condition of the earth, and saw that it was corrupt. All living things had violated God’s manner on the earth.
God told Noah, “The end of all flesh is come before me; because the earth is filled with violence through them; watch, I will destroy them with the earth.”
Can you imagine God being so upset with man that He would want to destroy them?
Daily Bible Reading:
1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3 And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4 There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
9 These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.
10 And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
Things to think about:
- Why was God upset with His creation?
- What did God want to do to His creation?
- Who is the one man that found grace in God’s eyes during this time?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this passage, we see the condition of the world had become so bad that You wanted to destroy everything You had created. We can only imagine how You must feel about the world and the condition it is in today. Please forgive us of all the ways we have failed You. Help us to repent and turn back to You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
This part of the book of Psalms contains fifteen of the Songs of degrees. They were the songs or chants that the people of Israel sang as they journeyed to Jerusalem. It also contains some of the Psalms of David.
