Russell Stendal teaches on Genesis 8-11
Genesis 8 (JUB)
1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters ceased;
2 the fountains also of the deep and the windows of the heavens were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
3 and the waters turned back and forth upon the earth, and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made,
7 and he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
8 Also he sent forth a dove from him to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground,
9 but the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were still upon the face of the whole earth. Then he put forth his hand and took her and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark,
11 and the dove came in to him in the evening, and, behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off, so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
12 And he stayed yet other seven days and sent forth the dove, which returned not again unto him any more.
13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year of Noah, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth, and Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
14 And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dried.
15 And God spoke unto Noah, saying,
16 Go forth from the ark, thou and thy wife and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
17 Bring forth with thee every animal that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl and of beasts and of every creeping thing that moves upon the earth, that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
18 And Noah went forth and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him;
19 all the animals, every creature and every fowl and whatever moves upon the earth after their kinds went forth out of the ark.
20 And Noah built an altar unto the Lord and took of every clean animal and of every clean fowl and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21 And the Lord smelled a savour of rest, and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake, for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his childhood; neither will I again smite any more every living thing as I have done.
22 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Genesis 9 (JUB)
1 And God blessed Noah and his sons and said unto them, Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth.
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every animal of the earth and upon every fowl of the heavens, upon all that moves upon the earth and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand they are delivered.
3 Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; even as the green grass I have given you all things.
4 But flesh with the soul (or life) thereof, which is its blood, ye shall not eat.
5 For surely your blood which is your souls I will require; at the hand of every animal I will require it and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother I will require the soul (or life) of man.
6 Whoever sheds man’s blood in man, his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God is man made.
7 And you, be ye fruitful and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth and multiply therein.
8 And God spoke unto Noah and to his sons with him, saying,
9 Behold that I establish my covenant with you and with your seed after you
10 and with every living soul that is with you, of the fowl, of the animals, and of every beast of the earth with you, from all that go out of the ark to every animal of the earth,
11 that I will establish my covenant with you, that all flesh shall not be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the sign of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living soul that is with you, for perpetual ages:
13 I set my bow in the clouds, and it shall be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass when I bring clouds over the earth, that the bow shall appear in the clouds;
15 and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living soul of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the clouds, and I will look upon it that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living soul of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This shall be the sign of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth from the ark, were Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah; and of them was the whole earth overspread.
20 And Noah began to till the ground, and he planted a vineyard;
21 and he drank of the wine and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father and told his two brethren outside.
23 Then Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they did not see their father’s nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a slave of slaves shall he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his slave.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his slave.
28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years, and he died.
Genesis 10 (JUB)
1 Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth; and unto them were born sons after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer: Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah and Tarshish, Kittim and Dodanim.
5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands, each one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.
6 And the sons of Ham: Cush and Mizraim and Phut and Canaan.
7 And the sons of Cush: Seba and Havilah and Sabtah and Raamah and Sabtecha. And the sons of Raamah: Sheba and Dedan.
8 And Cush begat Nimrod. He began to be powerful in the earth.
9 He was a powerful hunter before the Lord; therefore it is said, Even as Nimrod, the powerful hunter before the Lord.
10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel and Erech and Accad and Calneh in the land of Shinar.
11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, who built Nineveh and the city Rehoboth and Calah
12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah; the same is a great city.
13 And Mizraim begat Ludim and Anamim and Lehabim and Naphtuhim
14 and Pathrusim and Casluhim (out of whom came the Philistines) and Caphtorim.
15 And Canaan begat Sidon, his firstborn, and Heth
16 and Jebusite and Amorite and Girgasite
17 and Hivite and Arkite and Sinite
18 and Arvadite and Zemarite and Hamathite; and afterward were the families of the Canaanites spread abroad.
19 And the border of the Canaanites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar unto Gaza, as thou goest, unto Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboim, even unto Lasha.
20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations.
21 Unto Shem also, the father of all the sons of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, even to him were sons born.
22 The sons of Shem: Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram.
23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash.
24 And Arphaxad begat Salah, and Salah begat Eber.
25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
26 And Joktan begat Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth, Jerah,
27 Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
28 Obal, Abimael, Sheba,
29 Ophir, Havilah, and Jobab; all these were the sons of Joktan.
30 And their dwelling was from Mesha as thou goest unto Sephar, mount of the east.
31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their descendants, in their nations; and by these were the Gentiles divided in the earth after the flood.
Genesis 11 (JUB)
1 And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.
2 And it came to pass as they journeyed from the east that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick and burn them thoroughly. And they had brick instead of stone and slime instead of mortar.
4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the sons of the man built.
6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people are one, and they all have one language; and they begin to do this, and now nothing will be restrained from them which they have imagined to do.
7 Now, let us go down and there confound their language that they may not understand one another’s speech.
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there upon the face of all the earth, and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore the name of it was called Babel because there the Lord confounded the language of all the earth, and from there the Lord scattered them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
10 ¶ These are the generations of Shem: Shem was one hundred years old and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood:
11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years and begat sons and daughters.
12 And Arphaxad lived thirty-five years and begat Salah;
13 and Arphaxad lived after he begat Salah four hundred and three years and begat sons and daughters.
14 And Salah lived thirty years and begat Eber;
15 and Salah lived after he begat Eber four hundred and three years and begat sons and daughters.
16 And Eber lived thirty-four years and begat Peleg;
17 and Eber lived after he begat Peleg four hundred and thirty years and begat sons and daughters.
18 And Peleg lived thirty years and begat Reu;
19 and Peleg lived after he begat Reu two hundred and nine years and begat sons and daughters.
20 And Reu lived thirty-two years and begat Serug;
21 and Reu lived after he begat Serug two hundred and seven years and begat sons and daughters.
22 And Serug lived thirty years and begat Nahor;
23 and Serug lived after he begat Nahor two hundred years and begat sons and daughters.
24 And Nahor lived twenty-nine years and begat Terah;
25 and Nahor lived after he begat Terah one hundred and nineteen years and begat sons and daughters.
26 And Terah lived seventy years and begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran.
27 Now these are the generations of Terah: Terah begat Abram, Nahor, and Haran; and Haran begat Lot.
28 And Haran died before his father Terah in the land of his nature, in Ur of the Chaldees.
29 And Abram and Nahor took wives for themselves; the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran, the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah.
30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31 And Terah took Abram, his son, and Lot, the son of Haran, his son’s son, and Sarai, his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife, and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran and dwelt there.
32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran.
