This would seem to conflict with other texts that say God knows everything. (Ps. 139:2-4; Jer. 17:10; Heb. 4:13) Furthermore, Isaiah 49:15 has God Himself saying that He will not forget his holy ones. Therefore, how are we to reconcile what appears to be God temporarily forgetting Noah?
Genesis 6:4: Who were the Nephilim?
In Genesis 6:4, the Nephilim are mentioned as being on the earth in the time of Noah. The passage reads: “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.”
GENESIS 6:2: Who were the “sons of God”?
There are several different interpretations of who the “sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6:2, 4 might be. One view is that they were a group of angels who rebelled against God and married human women, producing offspring who were half-human and half-angelic. Another interpretation is that the “sons of God” were a group of human descendants of Seth, the son of Adam, who intermarried with the descendants of Cain, the son of Adam, who was banished from the Garden of Eden. Some have suggested that they were worshipers of God, as opposed to the other wicked men. So who were “the sons of God” mentioned in Genesis 6:2, 4 that fathered the Nephilim, who lived before the Flood?
GENESIS 5:1 BDC: Can We Trust Bible Chronology?
Many archaeologists and anthropologists date modern man back to at least 10,000 years ago. How are we to reconcile this when Bible Chronology takes us back to just a little over 6,000 years? It seems that some scholars who call themselves conservative or fundamentalist, who are supposed to believe that the original texts that contribute to our modern Bibles are “God-breathed” and fully inerrant, are not so conservative at times.

SCRIPTURES OFTEN MISUNDERSTOOD: Deuteronomy 14:21: Why Could Israelites Give a Stranger an Animal Found Dead Yet Not Eat It Themselves?
Deuteronomy 14:21 Updated American Standard Version (UASV) 21 “You shall not eat anything that dies of itself. You may give it to the sojourner who is inside your gates, and he may eat it, or it may be sold to a foreigner.

Genesis 10:5, 20, and 31 BDC: Indicates That There Were Many Languages, While 11:1 Says “One Language.” Why?
PROBLEM: Genesis 10:5, 20, 31 seem to suggest many dialects, which is an apparent conflict with Genesis 11:1 which clearly states, “the whole earth had one language and one speech.” Norman L. Geisler.
Genesis 7:11 BDC: Where did the water come from that caused the flood in Noah’s day?
God brings about the promised destruction of the earth by water.

Let us begin with a brief overview of the book of like because there is little doubt that Abel, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Sarah, Rahab, Ruth, Esther, and other Old Testament people are written in the book of life.
Genesis 7:1-2 BDC: How many of the clean animals did Noah take into the ark: seven of each clean animal or seven pairs of each?
Jehovah told Noah after he had completed the ark: “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, the male and its mate.” (Genesis 7:1-2)
