The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. (Genesis 6:11-12 NKJV)
І зіпсулась земля перед Божим лицем, і наповнилась земля насильством. І бачив Бог землю, і ось зіпсулась вона, кожне бо тіло зіпсуло дорогу свою на землі. (Буття 6:11-12 Ukrainian)
O LORD my God ~ thank you, dear Father, in heaven, for the fullness of your love and grace on this new day you grant us to live on the earth you created for your creatures. Help all people of faith and reason to be more proactive in conquering hatred, uncontrolled anger and outright violence against one another. Grant all faithful followers of Jesus clear minds so that we use plain and intelligible language when presenting our arguments before or against points of contention with those who don’t view matters of conscience precisely as we do. Give victory to those who advance genuine peace that surpasses ordinary human knowledge. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
