SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:5 Y vio el SEÑOR que la malicia de los hombres era mucha sobre la tierra, y que todo el intento de los pensamientos del corazón de ellos ciertamente era malo todo el tiempo.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 6:5 Verse 5. The wickedness of man was great] What an awful character does God give of the inhabitants of the antediluvian world! 1. They were flesh, (ver. 3,) wholly sensual, the desires of the mind overwhelmed and lost in the desires of the flesh, their souls no longer discerning their high destiny, but ever minding earthly things, so that they were sensualized, brutalized, and become flesh; incarnated so as not to retain God in their knowledge, and they lived, seeking their portion in this life. 2. They were in a state of wickedness. All was corrupt within, and all unrighteous without; neither the science nor practice of religion existed. Piety was gone, and every form of sound words had disappeared. 3. This wickedness was great hbr rabbah, ""was multiplied;"" it was continually increasing and multiplying increase by increase, so that the whole earth was corrupt before God, and was filled with violence, (ver. 11;) profligacy among the lower, and cruelty and oppression among the higher classes, being only predominant. 4. All the imaginations of their thoughts were evil - the very first embryo of every idea, the figment of every thought, the very materials out of which perception, conception, and ideas were formed, were all evil; the fountain which produced them, with every thought, purpose, wish, desire, and motive, was incurably poisoned. 5. All these were evil without any mixture of good - the Spirit of God which strove with them was continually resisted, so that evil had its sovereign sway. 6. They were evil continually - there was no interval of good, no moment allowed for serious reflection, no holy purpose, no righteous act. What a finished picture of a fallen soul! Such a picture as God alone, who searches the heart and tries the spirit, could possibly give. 7. To complete the whole, God represents himself as repenting because he had made them, and as grieved at the heart because of their iniquities! Had not these been voluntary transgressions, crimes which they might have avoided, had they not grieved and quenched the Spirit of God, could he speak of them in the manner he does here? 8. So incensed is the most holy and the most merciful God, that he is determined to destroy the work of his hands: And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created; ver. 7. How great must the evil have been, and how provoking the transgressions, which obliged the most compassionate God, for the vindication of his own glory, to form this awful purpose! Fools make a mock at sin, but none except fools.
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.
