SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:1 Â¶ Y acaeció que , cuando comenzaron los hombres a multiplicarse sobre la faz de la tierra, y les nacieron hijas,
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 6:1 Verse 1. When men began to multiply] It was not at this time that men began to multiply, but the inspired penman speaks now of a fact which had taken place long before. As there is a distinction made here between men and those called the sons of God, it is generally supposed that the immediate posterity of Cain and that of Seth are intended. The first were mere men, such as fallen nature may produce, degenerate sons of a degenerate father, governed by the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eye, and the pride of life. The others were sons of God, not angels, as some have dreamed, but such as were, according to our Lord's doctrine, born again, born from above, John iii. 3, 5,6, &c., and made children of God by the influence of the Holy Spirit, Gal. v. 6. The former were apostates from the true religion, the latter were those among whom it was preserved and cultivated.
Dr. Wall supposes the first verses of this chapter should be paraphrased thus: ""When men began to multiply on the earth, the chief men took wives of all the handsome poor women they chose. There were tyrants in the earth in those days; and also after the antediluvian days powerful men had unlawful connections with the inferior women, and the children which sprang from this illicit commerce were the renowned heroes of antiquity, of whom the heathens made their gods.""
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-7 - The most remarkable thing concerning the old world, is the destroying of it by the deluge, or flood. We are told of the abounding iniquity of that wicked world: God's just wrath, and his holy resolution to punis it. In all ages there has been a peculiar curse of God upon marriage between professors of true religion and its avowed enemies. The evi example of the ungodly party corrupts or greatly hurts the other Family religion is put an end to, and the children are trained u according to the worldly maxims of that parent who is without the fea of God. If we profess to be the sons and daughters of the Lor Almighty, we must not marry without his consent. He will never give his blessing, if we prefer beauty, with, wealth, or worldly honours, to faith and holiness. The Spirit of God strove with men, by sending Enoch, Noah, and perhaps others, to preach to them; by waiting to be gracious, notwithstanding their rebellions; and by exciting alarm an convictions in their consciences. But the Lord declared that his Spiri should not thus strive with men always; he would leave them to be hardened in sin, and ripened for destruction. This he determined on because man was flesh: not only frail and feeble, but carnal an depraved; having misused the noble powers of his soul to gratify his corrupt inclinations. God sees all the wickedness that is among the children of men; it cannot be hid from him now; and if it be no repented of, it shall be made known by him shortly. The wickedness of people is great indeed, when noted sinners are men renowned among them Very much sin was committed in all places, by all sorts of people. An one might see that the wickedness of man was great: but God saw tha every imagination, or purpose, of the thoughts of man's heart, was onl evil continually. This was the bitter root, the corrupt spring. The heart was deceitful and desperately wicked; the principles wer corrupt; the habits and dispositions evil. Their designs and device were wicked. They did evil deliberately, contriving how to do mischief There was no good among them. God saw man's wickedness as one injure and wronged by it. He saw it as a tender father sees the folly an stubbornness of a rebellious and disobedient child, which grieves him and makes him wish he had been childless. The words here used ar remarkable; they are used after the manner of men, and do not mean tha God can change, or be unhappy. Does God thus hate our sin? And shal not we be grieved to the heart for it? Oh that we may look on Him who we have grieved, and mourn! God repented that he had made man; but we never find him repent that he redeemed man. God resolves to destro man: the original word is very striking, `I will wipe off man from the earth,' as dirt or filth is wiped off from a place which should be clean, and is thrown to the dunghill, the proper place for it. God speaks of man as his own creature, when he resolves upon his punishment. Those forfeit their lives who do not answer the end of their living. God speaks of resolution concerning men, after his Spiri had been long striving with them in vain. None are punished by the justice of God, but those who hate to be reformed by the grace of God.
