    Noah found favor in the eyes of Jehovah.Gen. 6:8.

    By the time of Noah’s great-grandfather Enoch, people had become very ungodly. They were even saying “shocking things” against Jehovah. (Jude 14, 15) Violence was increasing. In fact, in Noah’s day, “the earth was filled with violence.” Wicked angels materialized as humans, took wives, and produced brutal, hybrid offspring. (Gen. 6:2-4, 11, 12)

    But Noah stood out as different. “He proved himself faultless among his contemporaries. Noah walked with the true God.” (Gen. 6:9) Consider what those words say about that righteous man. For one thing, Noah did not walk with God in that wicked pre-Flood world for a mere 70 or 80 years—the life span of many today. He lived in that world for almost 600 years! (Gen. 7:11)

    And unlike us today, he did not have a congregation of fellow worshippers—evidently not even his siblings—to turn to for spiritual support.
