Explanation: (:9-12) Disparity/Separation/Contrast/Corruption vs. Perfection
:9—“This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God.”
Dichotomy—a division or contrast between two things that are or are represented as being opposed or entirely different.
:9-10 contrasts :11-12 & vice-versa.
The following 4 verses concisely reiterate 6:1-8 while granting slightly more in regard to Noah’s character as it relates to God.
Noah was a man after God’s own heart. His behavioral characteristics were a testimony to a trust in his God.
*Noah exemplified God in that he was recognized & characterized as “a just man.” He lived this trait before his God & his fellow man.
*Noah was also considered by God to be “perfect” within all those “in his generations.” That is, Noah did what he did because he was compelled by his God to do so.
*Noah was also recognized as one who “walked” in the same direction as God—his choices mimicked those of God. Noah paralleled God as much as any of fallen humanity could... or rather he “walked” as God had intended mankind to “walk.” He was ‘yoked’ with God as closely as anyone could be.
