Genesis 6:22--7:1

Context

6:22 And Noah did all 1  that God commanded him – he did indeed. 2 

7:1 The Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, for I consider you godly among this generation. 3 

1 tn Heb “according to all.”

2 tn The last clause seems redundant: “and thus (כֵּן, ken) he did.” It underscores the obedience of Noah to all that God had said.

3 tn Heb “for you I see [as] godly before me in this generation.” The direct object (“you”) is placed first in the clause to give it prominence. The verb “to see” here signifies God’s evaluative discernment.
