60IN60 Day 23 - Tues Jan 23

It's Day 23 and we're in Genesis 8.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Nothing jumped out to me today.

- Verse 1 - "remembered" - This doesn't mean that God had forgotten about them like we might forget and leave the iron on when we leave the house.  It's Old Testament language for the fact that the time had come for God to act again.
- Verses 4-5 - My presumption is that the verse 5 references to the "tops of the mountains" means the tops of all the mountains, since there is a verse 4 reference to one mountain being revealed.  I take it mean that the water had receded sufficiently that all the mountains (and not just the tallest ones) were now visible.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.

Your Questions and Comments:
- "References in Gen. 6 to Sons of God, are they of the Nephilim and are the Nephilim also the heroes of old, men of renown? Or are the Sons of God someone else? I take it they are not humans since in verse 4 it states the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them." - It is an interesting but obscure reference. We can't be certain. Two of the more popular interpretations are (a) this was an unusually large group of people or (b) this was demons inhabiting human bodies and procreating.
