Genesis 6:1-22; 2 Peter 3:9
Adam and Eve had other children, and many generations (years) went by. Now there were many people, all descendants of Adam and Eve. Each of them disobeyed God. They were becoming more and more wicked. Their sin became so great that God decided to destroy them all in a great flood. There was only one man who loved and obeyed God. His name was Noah. God told Noah to build a large ship called an Ark. God was going to save Noah and his family in this ship. It took Noah many years to build the Ark. All during that time Noah warned the people about their bad ways, and the punishment that God was going to send. The people would not believe Noah's warnings. They did not want to turn from their evil ways.
