Chapter 6ו׳
1 א

וַהֲוָה כַּד שְׁרִיאוּ בְנֵי אֱנָשָׁא לְמִסְגֵּי עַל אַפֵּי אַרְעָא וּבְנָתָא אִתְיְלִידוּ לְהוֹן:

And it was when the sons of men had begun to multiply upon the earth, and daughters were born to them,

2 ב

וַחֲזוֹ בְנֵי רַבְרְבַיָּא יָת בְּנַת אֱנָשָׁא אֲרֵי שַׁפִּירָן אִנוּן וּנְסִיבוּ לְהוֹן נְשִׁין מִכֹּל דִּי אִתְרְעִיאוּ:

that the sons of the mighty saw the daughters of men that they were beautiful, and took to them wives of all whom they pleased.

3 ג

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לָא יִתְקַיַם דָרָא בִישָׁא הָדֵין קֳדָמַי לְעַלָם בְּדִיל דְאִנוּן בִּשְׂרָא וְעוֹבָדֵיהוֹן בִּישַׁיָא אַרְכָא יְהִיבַת לְהוֹן מְאָה וְעַשְׂרִין שְׁנִין אִם יְתוּבוּן:

And the Lord said, This evil generation shall not stand before me for ever, because they are flesh, and their works are evil. A term (or length) will I give them, an hundred and twenty years, if they may be converted.

4 ד

גִּבָּרַיָּא הֲווֹ בְאַרְעָא בְּיוֹמַיָּא הָאִנּוּן וְאַף בָּתַר כֵּן דִּי יַעֲלוּן בְּנֵי רַבְרְבַיָּא לְוַת בְּנַת אֱנָשָׁא וִילִידָן לְהוֹן אִנוּן גִּבָּרַיָּא דִּמֵעָלְמָא אֱנָשִׁין דִּשְׁמָא:

Giants were in the earth in those days; and also when, after that the sons of the mighty had gone in unto the daughters of men, there were born from them giants who from of old were men of name.

5 ה

וַחֲזָא יְיָ אֲרֵי סְגִיאַת בִּישַׁת אֱנָשָׁא בְּאַרְעָא וְכָל יִצְרָא מַחְשְׁבַת לִבֵּהּ לְחוֹד בִּישׁ כָּל יוֹמָא:

And the Lord saw that the wickedness of man had multiplied in the earth, and that every formation (or image) of the thought of his heart was only evil every day.

6 ו

וְתַב יְיָ בְּמֵימְרֵהּ אֲרֵי עֲבַד יָת אֱנָשָׁא בְּאַרְעָא וַאֲמַר בְּמֵימְרֵהּ לְמִתְּבַר תָּקְפְּהוֹן כִּרְעוּתֵהּ:

And it repented the Lord in His Word that He had made men upon the earth. And He said, (in His Word,) that He would break their strength according to His pleasure.

7 ז

וַאֲמַר יְיָ אֶמְחֵי יָת אֲנָשָׁא דִּי בְרֵאתִי מֵעַל אַפֵּי אַרְעָא מֵאֱנָשָׁא עַד בְּעִירָא עַד רִיחֲשָׁא וְעַד עוֹפָא דִּשְׁמַיָּא אֲרֵי תָבִית בְּמֵימְרִי אֲרֵי עֲבַדְתִּנוּן:

And the Lord said, Man whom I have made will I blot out from the face of the earth;‑from man to the beast, to the reptile, and to the fowls of heaven; because it repenteth Me in My Word that I have made them.

8 ח

וְנֹחַ אַשְׁכַּח רַחֲמִין קֳדָם יְיָ:

But Noach found mercy before the Lord.

Noachנח
9 ט

אִלֵּין תּוּלְדַת נֹחַ נֹחַ גְּבַר זַכַּאי שְׁלִים הֲוָה בְּדָרוֹהִי בְּדַחַלְתָּא דַיְיָ הַלִּיךְ נֹחַ:

These are the memorials of Noach. Noach was a man righteous and perfect in his generation; in the fear of the Lord walked Noach.

10 י

וְאוֹלִיד נֹחַ תְּלָתָא בְנִין יָת שֵׁם יָת חָם וְיָת יָפֶת:

And Noach begat three sons, Shem, Cham, and Yapeth.

11 יא

וְאִתְחַבָּלַת אַרְעָא קֳדָם יְיָ וְאִתְמְלִיאַת אַרְעָא חֲטוֹפִין:

And the earth was corrupted before the Lord, and the earth was filled with violences.

12 יב

וַחֲזָא יְיָ יָת אַרְעָא וְהָא אִתְחַבָּלַת אֲרֵי חַבִּילוּ כָּל בִּשְׂרָא אֱנַשׁ יָת אָרְחֵהּ עַל אַרְעָא:

And the Lord saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt, because all flesh had corrupted, each one, his way upon the earth.

13 יג

וַאֲמַר יְיָ לְנֹחַ קִצָּא דְכָל בִּשְׂרָא עַלַּת לִקֳדָמַי אֲרֵי אִתְמְלִיאַת אַרְעָא חֲטוֹפִין מִן קֳדָם עוֹבָדֵיהוֹן בִּישַׁיָּא וְהָא אֲנָא מְחַבֶּלְהוֹן עִם אַרְעָא:

And the Lord said to Noach, The end of all flesh cometh before Me, because the earth is filled with violences from the face of their wicked works; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

14 יד

עִיבֵד לָךְ תֵּבוֹתָא דְאָעִין דְּקַדְרוֹם מְדוֹרִין תַּעְבֵּד יָת תֵּבוֹתָא וְתֶחְפֵּי יָתַהּ מִגָּו וּמִבָּרָא בְּכָפְרָא:

Make thee an ark with the wood of cedar; dwellings shalt thou make in the ark, and overlay it within and without with pitch.

15 טו

וְדֵין דִתַעֲבֵּד יָתַהּ תְּלָת מְאָה אַמִּין אוּרְכָּא דְתֵבוֹתָא חַמְשִׁין אַמִּין פְּתָיַהּ וּתְלָתִין אַמִּין רוּמַהּ:

And thus shalt thou make it: three hundred cubits shall be the length of the ark, fifty cubits its breadth, and thirty cubits its height.

16 טז

נֵהוֹר תַּעְבֵּיד לְתֵבוֹתָא וּלְאַמְתָא תְּשַׁכְלְלִנַּהּ מִלְּעֵלָּא וְתַרְעָא דְתֵבוֹתָא בְּסִטְרַהּ תְּשַׁוִּי מְדוֹרִין אַרָעִין תִּנְיָנִין וּתְלִיתָאִין תַּעְבְּדִנַּהּ:

A light shalt thou make to the ark, and at a cubit shalt thou complete it above, and the door of the ark thou shalt place in its side. Lower dwellings, second and third, shalt thou make in it.

17 יז

וַאֲנָא הָא אֲנָא מַיְתֵי יָת טוֹפָנָא מַיָּא עַל אַרְעָא לְחַבָּלָא כָּל בִּשְׂרָא דִּי בֵיהּ רוּחָא דְחַיֵּי מִתְּחוֹת שְׁמַיָּא כֹּל דִּי בְאַרְעָא יְמוּת:

And I, behold, I do bring the deluge of waters upon the earth to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens. Every thing that is on the earth shall die.

18 יח

וְאָקֵם יָת קְיָמִי עִמָּךְ וְתֵעוֹל לְתֵבוֹתָא אַתְּ וּבְנָךְ וְאִתְּתָךְ וּנְשֵׁי בְנָךְ עִמָּךְ:

And I will establish My covenant with thee; and thou shalt enter into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and the wives of thy sons with thee.

19 יט

וּמִכָּל דְּחַי מִכָּל בִּשְׂרָא תְּרֵין מִכֹּלָא תָּעֵיל לְתֵבוֹתָא לְקַיָּמָא עִמָּךְ דְּכַר וְנָקְבָּא יְהוֹן:

And of all that liveth of all flesh two and two of all that enter into the ark to abide with thee, male and female shall they be.

20 כ

מֵעוֹפָא לִזְנוֹהִי וּמִן בְּעִירָא לִזְנַהּ וּמִכֹּל רִחֲשָׁא דְאַרְעָא לִזְנוֹהִי תְּרֵין מִכֹּלָּא יַעֲלוּן לְוָתָךְ לְקַיָּמָא:

Of fowl according to its kind, and of cattle according to her kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of all shall enter with thee to abide.

21 כא

וְאַתְּ סַב לָךְ מִכָּל מֵיכַל דִּמִתְאֲכֵל וְתִכְנוֹשׁ לְוָתָךְ וִיהֵי לָךְ וּלְהוֹן לְמֵיכָל:

And thou, take with thee of all food which is eaten, and gather to be with thee; and it shall be for thee and for them to eat.

וַעֲבַד נֹח כְּכֹל דִּי פַקֵּיד יָתֵיהּ יְיָ כֵּן עֲבָד:

And Noach did according to all which the Lord had commanded him, so did he.
