Noah


Noh´uh

Tthe son of Lamech (Gen 5:28-29); the grandson of Methuselah; and the ninth descendant from Adam via Seth. The story of Noah is found in (Gen 6-9). Noah and his household are the sole human survivors of the Flood, which God brought upon the world to punish human sin. Noah, sole righteous man of his era (Gen 5:9, Gen 7:6 cf. Gen 6:8), was chosen, with his entourage, to perpetuate life on earth. Noah is also mentioned several times in the NT (Matt 24:27-28; Luke 3:36; Heb 11:7). 1 Peter compares Noah’s deliverance from flood waters to the deliverance from sin through Christian baptism (1Pet 3:20-21).
