Day 7

Written on 10/26/2019


Genesis 5:25-6:8

25 Metushelach lived 187 years and fathered Lemekh. 

26 After Lemekh was born, Metushelach lived 782 years and had sons and daughters. 

27 In all, Metushelach lived 969 years; then he died.

28 Lemekh lived 182 years and fathered a son, 

29 whom he called Noach [restful]; for he said, “This one will comfort us in our labor, in the hard work we do with our hands [to get what comes] from the ground that Adonai cursed.” 

30 After Noach was born, Lemekh lived 595 years and had sons and daughters.

31 In all, Lemekh lived 777 years; then he died.

32 Noach was 500 years old; and Noach fathered Shem, Ham and Yefet.

1 In time, when men began to multiply on earth, and daughters were born to them, 

the sons of God saw that the daughters of men were attractive; and they took wives for themselves, whomever they chose. 

Adonai said, “My Spirit will not live in human beings forever, for they too are flesh; therefore their life span is to be 120 years.” 

The N’filim were on the earth in those days, and also afterwards, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; these were the ancient heroes, men of renown.

Adonai saw that the people on earth were very wicked, that all the imaginings of their hearts were always of evil only. 

Adonai regretted that he had made humankind on the earth; it grieved his heart. 

Adonai said, “I will wipe out humankind, whom I have created, from the whole earth; and not only human beings, but animals, creeping things and birds in the air; for I regret that I ever made them.” 

But Noach found grace in the sight of Adonai.

 

Revelation 21:1-5

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had passed away, and the sea was no longer there. 

Also I saw the holy city, New Yerushalayim, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 

I heard a loud voice from the throne say, “See! God’s Sh’khinah is with mankind, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and he himself, God-with-them, will be their God.

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes. There will no longer be any death; and there will no longer be any mourning, crying or pain; because the old order has passed away.”

Then the One sitting on the throne said, “Look! I am making everything new!” Also he said, “Write, ‘These words are true and trustworthy!’”
