[1] {sons of God}


Some hold that these "sons of God" were the "angels which kept not their first estate" # Jude 1:6. It is asserted that the title is in the O.T. exclusively used of angels. But this is an error # Isa 43:6. Angels are spoken of in a sexless way. No female angels are mentioned in Scripture, and we are expressly told that marriage is unknown among angels. # Mt 22:30.


The uniform Hebrew and Christian interpretation has been that verse # Ge 6:2 marks the breaking down of the separation between the godly line of Seth and the godless line of Cain, and so the failure of the testimony to Jehovah committed to the line of Seth # Ge 4:26. For apostasy there is no remedy but judgment # Isa 1:2 -7 , 24 , 25 # Heb 6:4 -8 10:26-31. Noah, "a preacher of righteousness," is given 120 years, but he won no convert, and the judgment predicted by his great-grandfather fell # Jude 1:14 , 15 Ge 7:11.

[Marg] {imagination}


Or, the whole imagination. The Hebrew word signifies not only the imagination but also the purposes and desires.

[Marg] {repented the LORD}


See Scofield "Zec 8:14".

[2] {walked}


Noah and Enoch are the two antediluvians of whom it is said that they "walked with God" # Ge 5:24 6:9. Enoch, "translated that he should not see death" # Heb 11:5 becomes a type of the saints who will be "caught up" before the great tribulation # 1Th 4:14-17 # Re 3:10 Da 12:1 Mt 24:21. Noah, preserved through the Flood, is a type of the Israelitish people who will be preserved through the tribulation # Jer 30:5 -9. See "Tribulation" # Ps 2:5 Re 7:14.








14.


[3] {ark}


"Ark": type of Christ as the refuge of His people from judgment # Heb 11:7. In strictness of application this speaks of the preservation through the "great tribulation" # Mt 24:21 , 22 of the remnant of Israel who will turn to the Lord after the Church (typified by Enoch, who was translated to heaven before the judgment of the Flood) has been caught up to meet the Lord # Ge 5:22-24 1Th 4:15-17 # Heb 11:5 Isa 2:10 , 11 26:20 , 21. But the type also has a present reference to the position of the believer "in Christ" (Ep 1.), etc. It should be noted that the word translated "pitch" in # Ge 6:14 is the same word translated "atonement" in # Le 17:11 etc. It is atonement that keeps out the waters of judgment and makes the believer’s position "in Christ" safe and blessed.

[1] {two of every sort}


Cf # Ge 7:2.


In addition to two animals, etc., commanded (# Ge 6.19) to be preserved for future increase ("they shall be male and female"), the further command was given more than 100 years later to take of clean beasts, i.e, acceptable for sacrifice, seven each. Exodus gives ten such beasts, or but seventy in all. Modern ships carry hundreds of live beasts, with their food, besides scores of human beings.

[1] {the Lord said in heart}


The Third Dispensation: Human Government. Under Conscience, as in Innocency, man utterly failed, and the judgment of the Flood marks the end of the second dispensation and the beginning of the third. The declaration of the Noahic Covenant subjects humanity to a new test. Its distinctive feature is the institution, for the first time, of human government—the government of man by man. The highest function of government is the judicial taking of life. All other governmental powers are implied in that. It follows that the third dispensation is distinctively that of human government. Man is responsible to govern the world for God. That responsibility rested upon the whole race, Jew and Gentile, until the failure of Israel under the Palestinian Covenant (Deu 28. -30.1-10) brought the judgment of the Captivities, when "the times of the Gentiles" (See) # Lu 21:24 Re 16:14 began, and the government of the world passed exclusively into Gentile hands # Da 2:36-45 Lu 21:24 Ac 15:14-17. That both Israel and the Gentiles have governed for self, not God, is sadly apparent. The judgment of the confusion of tongues ended the racial testing; that of the captivities the Jewish; while the Gentile testing will end in the smiting of the Image (Da 2.) and the judgment of the nations # Mt 25:31-46.
