The most remarkable thing we have upon record
concerning the old world is the destruction of it by the universal
deluge, the account of which commences in this chapter, wherein we
have, I. The abounding iniquity of that wicked world, ver. 1-5, and ver. 11, 12. II. The righteous God's just
resentment of that abounding iniquity, and his holy resolution to
punish it, ver. 6, 7. III.
The special favour of God to his servant Noah. 1. In the character
given of him, ver. 8-10.
2. In the communication of God's purpose to him, ver. 13, 17. 3. In the directions he gave
him to make an ark for his own safety, ver. 14-16. 4. In the employing of him for
the preservation of the rest of the creatures, ver. 18-21. Lastly, Noah's obedience to the
instructions given him, ver.
22. And this concerning the old world is written for our
admonition, upon whom the ends of the new world have come.
