5 "And Jehovah saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. ...


... 7 And Jehovah said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the ground; both man, and beast, and creeping things, and birds of the heavens; ... 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah.
   - Genesis 6:5-8  (ASV)

23 And every living thing was destroyed that was upon the face of the ground, ... and Noah only was left, and they that were with him in the ark. - Genesis 7:21-24  (ASV)

Sodom and Gomorrah

26 As it was in the days of Noah, even so it will also be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 They ate, they drank, they married, ... 28 Likewise, even as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but in the day that Lot went out from Sodom, it rained fire and sulfur from the sky and destroyed them all. - Luke 17:26-29  (WEB)

Son of Man

22 Unless those days had been shortened, no flesh would have been saved. But for the sake of the chosen ones, those days will be shortened. ...
38 For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ship, 39 and they didn't know until the flood came, and took them all away, so


will be the coming of the Son of Man."
   - Matthew 24:22-39  (WEB)
31 When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
