READINGS (TUESDAY OF THE SIXTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME)

FIRST READING
Gn 6:5-8; 7:1-5, 10

I will wipe out from the earth the men whom I have created.

A reading from the Book of Genesis

When the LORD saw how great was man’s wickedness on earth,
   and how no desire that his heart conceived
   was ever anything but evil,
   he regretted that he had made man on the earth,
   and his heart was grieved.

So the LORD said:
   “I will wipe out from the earth the men whom I have created,
   and not only the men,
   but also the beasts and the creeping things and the birds of the air,
   for I am sorry that I made them.”
But Noah found favor with the LORD.

Then the LORD said to Noah:
   “Go into the ark, you and all your household,
   for you alone in this age have I found to be truly just.
Of every clean animal, take with you seven pairs,
   a male and its mate;
   and of the unclean animals, one pair,
   a male and its mate;
   likewise, of every clean bird of the air, seven pairs,
   a male and a female,
   and of all the unclean birds, one pair,
   a male and a female.
Thus you will keep their issue alive over all the earth.
Seven days from now I will bring rain down on the earth
   for forty days and forty nights,
   and so I will wipe out from the surface of the earth
   every moving creature that I have made.”
Noah did just as the LORD had commanded him.

As soon as the seven days were over,
   the waters of the flood came upon the earth.
