Shark Attack

Genesis 6:1-8

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. {every...: or, the whole imagination: the Hebrew word signifieth not only the imagination, but also the purposes and desires} {continually: Heb. every day}

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. {both...: Heb. from man unto beast}

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

The events of this chapter probably began at about the time of Enoch, which was about 1000 years before the flood.

Verse 1 is not meant to imply that the births of baby girls were more than that of baby boys.

What this is doing is setting us up for what is about to happen.

Genesis 6:2

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.

According to the Jimmy Swaggart Expositors Bible, the Sons of God refer to fallen Angels, which had thrown in their lot with Lucifer, who had led a rebellion against God.

In order to spoil the human lineage through which the promised Messiah would come, they would do this by marrying the daughters of men.

What this would do is it would produce a mongrel race, which resulted, in some cases, as giants in the land.

Sons of God here refer to unrighteous Angels, Demons.

Jude 1:6-7

6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. {first estate: or, principality}

7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. {strange: Gr. other}

In verse 3, God says that His Spirit shall not always strive with man.

Wickedness on the earth during this time was exceedingly great.

Genesis 6:5 says:

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. {every...: or, the whole imagination: the Hebrew word signifieth not only the imagination, but also the purposes and desires} {continually: Heb. every day}
