Genesis 6:3
120 More Years of Mercy Although Genesis 6:3 stands in the midst of a passage that is difficult to interpret, the meaning of it in particular is much easier to understand.

Genesis 6:3
State Of The World (2469 BC): 120 Years Before The Flood Just over 1500 years after creation, the world, with all its might, was pursuing the broad path to destruction.

The Pre-Flood World: Filled With Violence (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3) God was about to inflict judgment upon mankind. He was about to bring catastrophe upon the earth.

Genesis 6:21
Did Noah Gather "Vegetarian" Food? The type of food which Noah would need to gather does not seem to have been as wide in variety as might first be thought. Noah did not have to worry about gathering pile after pile of different kinds of meat...
