Parasha 002 Noach (Noah) B’resheet 6:9 -11:32
Haftorah (Prophetic) reading: Yeshaiyahu (Isaiah) 52:1 – 55:5
Synopsis – Adonai (God), Noach, the fall of man and the flood. The Building of the Teiveh (Arc) and the gathering of the animals. All breathing creatures on land and in the air perish except for the eight (8). Noach thanking the Lord and building an alter to Him. Noach getting drunk. Two sons having compassion on there father but the one who mocks and his fall from grace. The tower of babble and the scattering of the people to no longer be able to speak one language.
Theme & Message – Man was under grace at this time in the world’s history. The Law Adonai gives to Moshe (Moses) has not come into this world. After man was kicked out of the Garden we as a people grew further and further away from righteousness. The anger of God burned against His creation. But He finds one man that would find favor in His sight, Noach. The Lord commissions Noach to build an Arc. To this point there had been no rain ever. Noach would have to endure much persecution from his community during the build of this project that Adonai asked for.
The message that you find in this Torah portion (Parasha) is stay close to the way Adonai wants things done. As a child of Adonai, He has given you this rule book (Bible) to follow. He has made known what He likes and what He finds repulsive. That is why Messiah stated that He will be coming back when the times are like in the days of Noach ( Mat 24:37-39) The greatest understanding of the flood is that we can learn from the past and the mistakes those people. The people of the earth did not have the Scriptures to be able to reference what Adonai likes and dislikes. He had put His Spirit in them but they did not listen to there own hearts. That is why we need the Bible because our heart can deceive us..

B’resheet / Genesis 6 -
The children of God, among whom the true religion was at first preserved, corrupt it by forming matrimonial connections with irreligious women, Gen_6:1, Gen_6:2. God, displeased with these connections and their consequences, limits the continuance of the old world to one hundred and twenty years, Gen_6:3. The issue of those improper connections termed giants, Gen_6:4. An affecting description of the depravity of the world, Gen_6:5, Gen_6:6. God threatens the destruction of every living creature, Gen_6:7. Noach and his family find grace in his sight, Gen_6:8. The character and family of Noach, Gen_6:9, Gen_6:10. And a farther description of the corruption of man, Gen_6:11, Gen_6:12. Noah is forewarned of the approaching destruction of the human race, Gen_6:13; and is ordered to build an ark for the safety of himself and household, the form and dimensions of which are particularly described, Gen_6:14-16. The deluge threatened, Gen_6:17. The covenant of God’s mercy is to be established between Him and the family of Noach, Gen_6:18. A male and female of all kinds of animals that could not live in the waters to be brought into the ark, Gen_6:19, Gen_6:20. Noach is commanded to provide food for their sustenance, Gen_6:21; and punctually follows all these directions, Gen_6:22.
Gen 6:8 But Noach found favor in the LORD's eyes.
Gen 6:9 This is the history of the generations of Noach. Noach was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time. Noach walked with God.
Noach found favor in the Lord’s sight. In a time where the whole world and it’s people had fallen away from what was right Noach was seen by the Lord to have the Kingdom in mind. Very few men throughout the scriptures have walked with God. Also not too many men have been called blameless.
Gen 6:11 The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
Gen 6:12 God saw the earth, and saw that it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
Like it talks about in the Book of Revelation. With no God men get corrupted. After the Garden men were on there own with only grace. When you have no rules men will do whatever is right in their own eyes (Isa. 5). The Law (Commandments) had not been given it this point in time. Is this not like it is in today’s world? The messiah also talks about this type of behavior pryor to His coming back (Mat 24:37-39).
Gen 6:14 Make a teivah of gofer wood. You shall make rooms in the teivah, and shall seal it inside and outside with kofer.
This ark was like the hulk of a ship, fitted not to sail upon the waters (there was no occasion for that, when there should be no shore to sail to), but to float upon the waters, waiting for their fall. God could have secured Noah by the ministration of angels, without putting him to any care, or pains, or trouble, himself; but He chose to employ him in making that which was to be the means of his preservation, both for the trial of his faith and obedience and to teach us that none shall be saved unless you choose to obey Adonai and to follow His will. This was a great challenge to Noach to build something that had never been built before. This goes to show you that all things are possible with God. (See below Brit Hadasha “NT”).
"An ark" or "chest": this was made of "Gopher wood", which all the Targums, and the more ancient Rabbins, understand of cedar wood; some the box tree, as the Arabic version; others, the pine; others, fir; the Mahometans say it was the Indian plane tree; and others, the turpentine tree: but the cypress tree bids fairest to be the wood of which, the ark was made. This vessel was used to save those who would choose the Lord. The same type of wood “Cedar” the lord instructed us to use for the inner part of the Holy of Holies.
Gen 6:17 I, even I, do bring the flood of waters on this earth, to destroy all flesh having the breath of life from under the sky. Everything that is in the earth will die.
Gen 6:18 But I will establish my covenant with you. You shall come into the teivah, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you.
Who are the two” I”? The Lord says He is going to destroy all things that breath air. The Lord is saying He and He alone is our Judge and our Jury. There is not a trial of our peers. You will either follow Gods rules or you will perish. This is showing that the Lord of creation does not have a democracy but a Kingdom. In a Kingdom there is a King and you are a subject. Subject do not get a vote in decisions.
Gen 6:22 Thus Noach did. According to all that God commanded him, so he did.
Here we see Noach still following what his Master had asked him to do.
B’resheet / Genesis 7
God informs Noach that within seven days he shall send a rain upon the earth, that shall continue for forty days and nights; and therefore commands him to take his family, with the different clean and unclean animals, and enter the ark, Gen_7:1-4. This command punctually obeyed, Gen_7:5-9. In the seventeenth day of the second month, in the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, the waters, from the opened windows of heaven, and the broken up fountains of the great deep, were poured out upon the earth, Gen_7:10-12. The different quadrupeds, fowls, and reptiles come unto Noach, and the Lord shuts him and them in, Gen_7:13-16. The waters increase, and the ark floats, Gen_7:17. The whole earth is covered with water fifteen cubits above the highest mountains, Gen_7:18-20. All terrestrial animals die, Gen_7:21-23. And the waters prevail one hundred and fifty days, Gen_7:24.
Gen 7:1 The LORD said to Noach, "Come with all of your household into the teivah, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation.
Gen 7:2 You shall take seven pairs of every clean animal with you, the male and his female. Of the animals that are not clean, take two, the male and his female.
The Law was not written yet, so it is very interesting how Noach new what was clean and unclean. But when you are one with the Lord and walk with your beloved King you get a greater understanding of what He likes and dislikes.
7 is God number of perfection. Also you see the Lord telling Noach to bring a male and a female. So this lets us know that there was no homosexuals on the boat.
Gen 7:4 In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. Every living thing that I have made, I will destroy from the surface of the ground."
Gen 7:5 Noach did everything that the LORD commanded him.
Gen 7:6 Noach was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth
Forty is the number of completion in Hebrew. This was a test by the Lord to see if they would get out of the Arc. To see if they would follow what God has asked. There must have been many people banging on the door to the Arc. The Messiah Yeshua would also go through a Forty day testing period (See Brit Hadasha).
Gen 7:8 Clean animals, animals that are not clean, birds, and everything that creeps on the ground
Gen 7:9 went by pairs to Noach into the teivah, male and female, as God commanded Noach.
Gen 7:10 It happened after the seven days, that the waters of the flood came on the earth.
Once again we see the Lord telling us ONLY male and female.
Gen 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noach's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky's windows were opened.
What Month? Below is a chart showing the Hebrew months. The calendar the way God sees it. The Lord does not follow the pagan calendar the world has set up. So if you want to follow Gods ways you must know what time God says it is. If God sends you a wedding invitation you will know when to go to the party. (You can also get our teaching book “Adonai’s Moedeem "appointed times" His days & His months)
Gen 7:16 Those who went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.
Gen 7:17 The flood was forty days on the earth. The waters increased, and lifted up the teivah, and it was lifted up above the earth.
These pairs were not two males or two females, but one male and one female; so they were coupled for the propagation of their species, which was the end of their entering into the ark, and being preserved. Who closed the Arc door? Adonai Tisvaoh “The Lord almighty”. And the Lord shut him in; or shut the door after him He being the last that entered; and which he could not so well shut himself, at least so close, as was done by the Lord, and this was done to keep out the waters, and all within in safety; and to shut out others, and preserve Noah from the rage of wicked men, as well as the violence of the waters. When your Father sends you to your room it is for a great purpose. Noach is showing great FAITH in allowing the Lord to take charge.
Gen 7:23 Every living thing was destroyed that was on the surface of the ground, including man, livestock, creeping things, and birds of the sky. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noach was left, and those who were with him in the teivah.
Gen 7:24 The waters prevailed on the earth one hundred fifty days.
The Arc rested until the fortieth day than was lifted. It is very interesting that Messiah would be tested in the beginning of His ministry for forty days. The people in the arc could have opened the door. They could have not listened to God command but they chose to stay put as the Father commanded.
Gen 7:24 The water held power over the earth for 150 days.
The flood started in the month of introspection and ends in the month of ever flowing streams of life. The Lord does this same pattern later on with the exodus from Egypt. How we leave bondage and go into the desert to be alone with the Lord like Noach. But 150 days later we get the atonement.
B’resheet / Genesis 8 -
At the end of one hundred and fifty days the waters begin to subside, Gen_8:1-3. The ark rests on Mount Ararat, Gen_8:4. On the first of the tenth month the tops of the hills appear, Gen_8:5. The window opened and the raven sent out, Gen_8:6, Gen_8:7. The dove sent forth, and returns, Gen_8:8, Gen_8:9. The dove sent forth a second time, and returns with an olive leaf, Gen_8:10, Gen_8:11. The dove sent out the third time, and returns no more, Gen_8:12. On the twentieth day of the second month the earth is completely dried, Gen_8:13, Gen_8:14. God orders Noah, his family, and all the creatures to come out of the ark, Gen_8:15-19. Noah builds an altar, and offers sacrifices to the Lord, Gen_8:20. They are accepted; and God promises that the earth shall not be cursed thus any more, notwithstanding the iniquity of man, Gen_8:21, Gen_8:22.
Gen 8:1 God remembered Noach, all the animals, and all the livestock that were with him in the teivah; and God made a wind to pass over the earth. The waters subsided.

As you can see the Spirit that was on the water was from God so it must be the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). The Ruach HaKodesh was on the water. Making sure that the will of the Father had been completed.
Gen 8:4 The teivah rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on Ararat's mountains.
What Month? Tishri. What happens in Tishrei? Succoth! The seventh is the month God appointed for Succoth “Feast of Tabernacles”
Gen 8:7 and he sent forth a raven. It went back and forth, until the waters were dried up from the earth.
Gen 8:7 - And he sent forth a raven,.... That by it he might make his observation, how high or low the waters were upon the earth; and the rather he sent out the raven, a bird of prey, which feeds on carrion, that if the earth had been dry, the smell of the dead carcasses would have invited it to go far off from the ark, and not return; but if not, he would see it again.
The raven and the dove have been thought to stand for the believer's two natures: the "old man" satisfied with a world under judgment; the "new man" finding satisfaction only in the things of the new creation.
Gen 8:8 He sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from the surface of the ground,
Gen 8:9 but the dove found no place to rest her foot, and she returned to him into the teivah; for the waters were on the surface of the whole earth. He put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the teivah.
Gen 8:10 He stayed yet another seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the teivah.
Gen 8:11 The dove came back to him at evening, and, behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off. So Noach knew that the waters were abated from the earth.
to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; for the dove is a creature that delights in cleanness, flies low, and goes far off, so that if it returned not again, he might conclude that the waters were gone off the earth; but being a sociable creature, and familiar to men, and especially loving to its mate, if they were not gone off, it would certainly return again. This some take to be an emblem of the Gospel, bringing the good tidings of peace, pardon, righteousness and salvation by Jesus Christ: rather it is an emblem of a sensible sinner, and true believer in Christ, being mournful, timorous, swift, modest, and affectionate; such persons, like doves of the valley, mourn for their iniquities; tremble at the sight of their sins, and the curses of the law, at the apprehension of divine wrath, at the awful judgment of God; and are fearful lest Christ should not receive them, to whom they swiftly fly for refuge, as doves to their windows; and who are modest, meek, and lowly, and affectionate to Christ, and one another. The Targum of Jonathan calls this an house dove, or tame one: hence, perhaps, came the practice of making use of doves as messengers to carry letters from place to place.
Gen 8:14 In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry.
This most likely was the 40th day of counting the Omer. The counting of the Omer is found in Leviticus. But it is very interesting that it would be the 40th . What is 40 in Hebrew? Completion.
Gen 8:20 Noach built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
Gen 8:21 The LORD smelled the sweet savor. The LORD said in his heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, because the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again strike everything living, as I have done.
Once you have run the race or once you have come through the fire you should always give thanks to the One who brought you through. Noach did just that. He gave thanks to the one who is worthy.
B’resheet / Genesis 9 -
God blesses Noach and his sons, Gen_9:1. The brute creation to be subject to them through fear, Gen_9:2. The first grant of animal food, Gen_9:3. Eating of blood forbidden, Gen_9:4. Cruelty to animals forbidden, Gen_9:5. A man-slayer to forfeit his life, Gen_9:6. The covenant of God established between him and Noah and the whole brute creation, Gen_9:8-11. The rainbow given as the sign and pledge of this covenant, Gen_9:12-17. The three sons of Noach people the whole earth, Gen_9:18, Gen_9:19. Noach plants a vineyard, drinks of the wine, is intoxicated, and lies exposed in his tent, Gen_9:20, Gen_9:21. The reprehensible conduct of Ham, Gen_9:22. The laudable carriage of Shem and Yepheth (Japheth), Gen_9:23. Noach prophetically declares the servitude of the posterity of Ham, Gen_9:24, Gen_9:25; and the dignity and increase of Shem and Yafet (Japheth), Gen_9:26, Gen_9:27. The age and death of Noach, Gen_9:28, Gen_9:29.

Gen 9:3 Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you.
Gen 9:4 But flesh with the life of it, the blood of it, you shall not eat.
You see the Lord does not want us to be vegetarians. The major point Adonai is making is that we abstain from drinking of blood. When we were in the perfect place Gan Eden we only needed to be vegetarians. Now that we live in the imperfect our bodies need the meat.
Gen 9:11 I will establish my covenant with you: all flesh will not be cut off any more by the waters of the flood, neither will there ever again be a flood to destroy the earth."
Gen 9:12 God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
Gen 9:13 I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth.

The covenant of God. It is something to behold. It has no beginning and no end like a wedding band. It is interesting in Hebrew that the word we say as rainbow is actually “Bow” in Hebrew. When you have a covenant with the Lord of all creation you have a bow for hunting…you shoot as straight as an archer…and you have the promise of God to never leave you or forsake you.
Gen 9:21 He drank of the wine and got drunk. He was uncovered within his tent.
Gen 9:22 Cham, the father of Kena`an, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.
Gen 9:23 Shem and Yefet took a garment, and laid it on both their shoulders, went in backwards, and covered the nakedness of their father. Their faces were backwards, and they didn't see their father's nakedness.
Your sin does not just touch you. If Noach had not gotten drunk his son may have not slipped up. But this also shows that when we are old enough to make our own decisions we are accountable for them and can not blame another for our stupidity. The two younger brothers chose to be wiser than the older.
B’resheet / Genesis 10 -

Gen 10:8 Kush became the father of Nimrod. He began to be a mighty one in the earth.
Gen 10:9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD. Therefore it is said, "Like Nimrod, a mighty hunter before the LORD."
Cush= blackness, Nimrod= rebellion
B’resheet / Genesis 11 -
All the inhabitants of the earth, speaking one language and dwelling in one place, Gen_11:1, Gen_11:2, purpose to build a city and a tower to prevent their dispersion, Gen_11:3, Gen_11:4. God confounds their language, and scatters them over the whole earth, Gen_11:5-9. Account of the lives and families of the postdiluvian patriarchs. Shem, Gen_11:10, Gen_11:11. Arphaxad, Gen_11:12, Gen_11:13. Salah, Gen_11:14, Gen_11:15. Eber, Gen_11:16, Gen_11:17. Peleg, Gen_11:18, Gen_11:19. Ragau or Reu, Gen_11:20, Gen_11:21. Serug, Gen_11:22, Gen_11:23. Nahor, Gen_11:24, Gen_11:25. Terah and his three sons, Haran, Nahor, and Abram, Gen_11:26, Gen_11:27. The death of Haran, Gen_11:28. Abram marries Sarai, and Nahor marries Milcah, Gen_11:29. Sarai is barren, Gen_11:30. Terah, Abram, Sarai, and Lot, leave Ur of the Chaldees, and go to Haran, Gen_11:31. Terah dies in Haran, aged two hundred and five years, Gen_11:32.
Gen 11:1 The whole earth was of one language and of one speech.
Gen 11:2 It happened, as they traveled east, that they found a plain in the land of Shin`ar, and they lived there.
Gen 11:3 They said one to another, "Come, let's make bricks, and burn them thoroughly." They had brick for stone, and they used tar for mortar.
Gen 11:4 They said, "Come, let's build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top reaches to the sky, and let's make ourselves a name, lest we be scattered abroad on the surface of the whole earth."
Gen 11:1 -
The whole earth was of one language - The whole earth - all mankind was of one language, in all likelihood Hebrew; and of one speech - articulating the same words in the same way. It is generally supposed, that after the confusion mentioned in this chapter, the Hebrew language remained in the family of Heber. The proper names, and their significations given in the Scripture, seem incontestable evidences that the Hebrew language was the original language of the earth - the language in which God spoke to man, and in which he gave the revelation of his will to Moses and the prophets.
Gen 11:7 Come, let's go down, and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another's speech."
Who is us? Father and Son.
Gen 11:9 Therefore the name of it was called Bavel, because there the LORD confused the language of all the earth. From there, the LORD scattered them abroad on the surface of all the earth.
The name of the city mentioned, and the tower also, which signifies "confusion", as the Septuagint version renders it; and so Josephus says the Hebrews call confusion "Babel": perhaps this name was given it by the sons of Eber, or it might be a common name preserved in all languages, as some are; and though the first builders desisted from going on with building it.
BRIT HADASHA LESSON (New Testament)
Tied together From B’resheet 6:14
Mat 19:23 Yeshua said to his talmidim, "Most certainly I say to you, a rich man will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven with difficulty.
Mat 19:24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of God."
Mat 19:25 When the talmidim heard it, they were exceedingly astonished, saying, "Who then can be saved?"
Mat 19:26 Looking at them, Yeshua said, "With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Mat 19:27 Then Kefa answered, "Behold, we have left everything, and followed you. What then will we have?"
Mat 19:28 Yeshua said to them, "Most certainly I tell you that you who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on the throne of his glory, you also will sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisra'el.
Mat 19:29 Everyone who has left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, will receive one hundred times, and will inherit eternal life.
Mat 19:30 But many will be last who are first; and first who are last.
Mar 1:9 It happened in those days, that Yeshua came from Natzeret of the Galil, and was immersed by Yochanan in the Yarden.
Mar 1:10 Immediately coming up from the water, he saw the heavens parting, and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.
Mar 1:11 A voice came out of the sky, "You are my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Mar 1:12 Immediately the Spirit drove him out into the wilderness.
Mar 1:13 He was there in the wilderness forty days tempted by Hasatan. He was with the wild animals; and the angels were serving him.
B’resheet 8:4 this ties together with :
Act 2:1 Now when the day of Shavu`ot had come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Rev 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel coming down out of the heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, and his face was as the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.
Is this the one who promised us back in Genesis? Who is this coming down out of Heaven? Is this God or the Messiah or both?
Mat 17:1 And after six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and brought them up into a high mountain apart.
Mat 17:2 And He was transfigured before them. And His face shone as the sun, and His clothing was white as the light.
So you see the shoestring…the promise from Genesis…to the final Book of Revelation and the one coming out of heaven with the fullness of light around Him. The other thing about a rainbow it is able to bend the light. Who else but God can bend the light?
