Genesis 6:5–6 ESV
The LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the LORD regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
He saw what man had made, and it was very bad. And the LORD regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him to his heart.
Genesis 6:11–12 ESV
Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
Violence & corruption... the earth was filled with violence and was thereby corrupt. One day the earth will be filled with peace, and will thereby be restored, renewed.
Today I sense the peace of God in my heart, a taste of what will one day be unending. And I once again marvel at Jesus, who made all things new.
