One held that his name was actually Nimrod, and Genesis 14:1 calls him Amraphel because he ordered Abraham to be cast into a burning furnace (and thus the name Amraphel reflects the words for "he said" (amar) and "he cast" (hipil)). Whereas Speiser read the Priestly source, whose calendar is typically detailed down to the exact day of the given month, to report in Genesis 7:24 that the waters held their crest for 150 days and to report in Genesis 7:11 and 8:14 that they remained on the earth one year and 11 days.

[125], Rav Huna cited the report in Genesis 8:20 that Noah offered burnt offerings from every clean animal and bird to support the proposition in a Baraita that all animals were eligible to be offered, as the words "animal" (בְּהֵמָה‎, behemah) and "bird" (עוֹף‎, of) refer to any animal or bird, and the term "animal" (בְּהֵמָה‎, behemah) includes wild beasts (חַיָה‎, hayyah).

The Gemara read the word "bird" (צִפּוֹר‎, tzippor) here to refer only to clean birds, and "winged" (כָּנָף‎, kanaf) to include both unclean birds and grasshoppers. [191], The Midrash ha-Ne'lam (The Midrash of the Concealed) told that when Noah left the Ark and saw the terrible destruction all around, he wept and cried out to God that God should have shown compassion for God’s creatures.

[205], The 17th-century Dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza explained the report of Genesis 9:13, in which God told Noah that God would set God's rainbow in the cloud, as but another way of expressing the refraction and reflection that the rays of the sun are subjected to in drops of water. when warned χρηματισθεὶς (chrēmatistheis) Verb - Aorist Participle Passive - Nominative Masculine Singular Strong's Greek 5537: From chrema; to utter an oracle, i.e. Rabbi Eliezer, however, taught that the events of Genesis 7:11 took place on the seventeenth of Cheshvan, a day on which the constellation of the Pleiades rises at daybreak, and the season when the fountains begin to fill.

[72], Similarly, Rabbi Judah and Rabbi Nehemiah differed interpreting the words, "Noah was a just man, and perfect in his generations," in Genesis 6:9. The principle is that everything for honoring the living relatives should be done for them, as opposed to for the honor of the person who committed suicide. Rabbi Nehemiah, however, taught that if Noah was righteous even in his generation (in spite of the corrupt environment), how much more so would he have been, had he lived in the age of Moses. Noah’s sons Ham, Shem and Japheth however have several colour clues hidden in their names. Transliteration: Noach. [122], Similarly, reading of the dove in Genesis 8:11, "and lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf," Rabbi Eleazar (or others say Rabbi Jeremiah ben Eleazar) taught that the dove prayed to God that God might let the dove's sustenance be as bitter as the olive but given by God, rather than sweet as honey and given by flesh and blood (upon whom the dove was therefore dependent). And if so, the ark could not have come to rest on the top of the mountains.

The Gemara noted that if in Genesis 6:16 God told Noah, "A window shall you make to the ark," then Noah should have been able to tell day from night. [187], Maimonides taught that before Abraham's birth, only a very few people recognized or knew God in the world, among them Enoch, Methuselah, Noah, Shem, and Eber. The Gemara noted, however, that there are those who say that the seven days before the Flood were days of mourning for Methuselah (who died just before the Flood). Every person on the face of the earth can use these laws as the basis of his spiritual, moral and pragmatic life. [144] Rabbi Eleazar ben Azariah and Ben Azzai both said that whoever does not have children diminishes the Divine image as demonstrated by proximity of the notice that God created us in God's image (Genesis 9:6) and the command to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 9:7). (Rabbi Eleazar taught that) God bestowed greatness on Nimrod, but Nimrod (did not humble himself, but) said, in the words of Genesis 11:4, "Come, let us build ourselves a city. ", Zeitschrift für die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft, book 1, chapter 3, paragraphs 2–3, 5, 7–8, "The Image of God in the Book of Genesis — A Study of Terminology.

For I have singled him out, that he may instruct his children and his posterity to keep the way of the Lord by doing what is just and right, in order that the Lord may bring about for Abraham what He has promised him." [119] The Gemara asked how Jews could be excluded from the "children of Noah," as Genesis 7:23 indicates that all humanity descended from Noah.

We'll call her Noah II; … [209] Cassuto saw manifest irony in the report of Genesis 11:3, "And they had brick for stone," as if the Israelites mocked the object of Babylonian boasting — buildings of bricks, which stand today and tomorrow are in ruins — as if the poor Babylonians did not even have hard stone for building such as the Israelites had in the land of Israel. The Seven laws of Noah (Hebrew:שבע מצוות בני נח) are 7 moral laws for the non Jews.Unlike the 10 commandments, the laws are all prohibitions. Rabbi Nehemiah compared Noah to a king's friend who was plunging about in dark alleys, and when the king saw him sinking in the mud, the king urged his friend to walk with him instead of plunging about. "Naamah: Survivor of the Flood." The Baraita also taught that among all the nations, there was none more fertile than Egypt, for Genesis 13:10 says, "Like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt." [214] For a similar distribution of verses, see the display of Genesis according to the Documentary Hypothesis at Wikiversity. Thus, when Scripture says that God "sees" — as in Genesis 6:12, "And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt" — it means that God perceives visible things. [114], In a Baraita, Rabbi Eleazar of Modi'im interpreted Genesis 7:22, "Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered." [9] The Ark was to be 300 cubits long, 50 cubits wide, and 30 cubits high. [21] He waited another seven days and sent out the dove, and it did not return.

[17] When the waters had swelled 150 days, God remembered Noah and the beasts, and God caused a wind to blow and the waters to recede steadily from the earth, and the Ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. [80], Interpreting the words, "And the earth was corrupt (תִּשָּׁחֵת‎,tishachet) before God," in Genesis 6:11, a Baraita of the School of Rabbi Ishmael taught that whenever Scripture uses the word "corruption," it refers to sexual immorality and idolatry. The parashah is discussed in these rabbinic sources from the era of the Mishnah and the Talmud:[71], Interpreting the words, "Noah was a just man, and perfect in his generations," in Genesis 6:9, Rabbi Johanan taught that Noah was considered righteous in his generations, but would not have been considered righteous in other generations. Reference to sexual immorality appears in Jeremiah 51:35, which says, "The violence done to me (חֲמָסִי‎, chamasi) and to my flesh (שְׁאֵרִי‎, she'eri) be upon Babylon" (and שְׁאֵר, she'er refers to sexual immorality, for example, in Leviticus 18:6). [87], Rabbi Isaac taught that God told Noah that just as a pair of birds (ken) cleansed a person with skin disease (as instructed in Leviticus 14:4–8), so Noah's Ark would cleanse Noah (so that he would be worthy to be saved from the Flood). Genesis 6:5 characterizes their corruption as great (רַבָּה‎, rabbah), saying, "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth." And thus Rabbi Levi read Genesis 7:23 to say, "And He blotted out every one that had arisen. But Rabbi Nehemiah insisted that 1 Kings 17:6 literally meant ravens, and the ravens brought Elijah food from King Jehoshaphat's table. [203], Speiser read Genesis 7:4, 12, 8:6, 10, and 12, to reflect the Jahwist’s chronology that the rains came down 40 days and nights, and the waters disappeared after 3 times 7 days, the whole deluge lasting thus 61 days. Thus Noah's ability to enter the Ark at all was proof of the covenant God established with Noah in Genesis 6:18. ", Robert B. Laurin. [13], In the second reading (עליה‎, aliyah), in chapter 7, seven days before the Flood, God told Noah to go into the Ark with his household, and to take seven pairs of every clean animal and every bird, and two pairs of every other animal, to keep their species alive. [88], Rav Adda taught that the scholars of Rav Shila interpreted "gopher wood" in Genesis 6:14 to mean mabliga (a resinous species of cedar), while others maintained it was golamish (a very hard and stone-like species of cedar). When people told him that it was turning, he asked if the vault contained any better. [46], In the continuation of the reading, Canaan's descendants — Sidon, Heth, the Jebusites, the Amorites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, the Arkites, the Sinites, the Arvadites, the Zemarites, and the Hamathites — spread out from Sidon as far as Gerar, near Gaza, and as far as Sodom and Gomorrah. [127], Rav Awira (or some say Rabbi Joshua ben Levi) taught that the Evil Inclination (yetzer hara) has seven names. Rabbi Hiyya bar Abba explained that God was thus telling Noah that though he may have built the Ark, but for God's covenant, Noah could not have entered the Ark. ", "The Historical Background of Genesis 11:1–9: Babel or Ur? ", Isaac M. Kikawada. "The Flood and the Structure of the Pre–patriarchal History. The Gemara noted that it was important for Noah to be able to tell day from night, for some animals eat only during the day, and others eat only during the night, and thus Noah could determine the proper feeding times for the animals under his care. [101] Similarly, Rav Hisda asked how Noah knew (before the giving of Leviticus 11) which animals were clean and which were unclean. [164], Rabbi Simeon told that God called to the 70 angels who surround the throne of God's glory and said, "Let us descend and let us confuse the 70 nations (that made up the world) and the 70 languages." God replied that God had already long ago provided for Abraham's descendants in the Torah the order of the sacrifices, and whenever they read it, God would deem it as if they had offered them before God, and God would grant them pardon for all their iniquities. Rabbi Johanan reported that three of those great thermal fountains remained open after the Flood — the gulf of Gaddor, the hot-springs of Tiberias, and the great well of Biram.
