As stated in Genesis 6:8 (kjv) But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.

  • I find it interesting that Noah is not the only person in Genesis who "walked with God". It says nothing unique re: Enoch. However, both he and Noah had their lives saved. Enoch “walked with God” (Gen 5:24) and had his life saved permanently Noah “walked with God” (Gen 6:10) and had his life saved, temporarily. Feb 11 '20 at 19:07

It is answered in the next verse, as well as the first verse of Genesis 7:

Gen. 6:9:

9 These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Gen. 7:1:

1 And Yahveh said to Noah, “Come, you and all your house into the ark, for I have seen you righteous before Me in this generation.”


He also was a "preacher."

2 Pet. 2:5 Noah, the eighth person spared, a PREACHER of righteousness,..

This would be pleasing to God.


I think the bible is clear; Noah pleased God because, just like Abraham, he believed God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Without faith, it is impossible to please Him.

Hebrews 11:6-7 (KJV)

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. 7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.


other people "feared the Lord and escheweth evil" perhaps this is one way to describe it.

Belief preceeding obedience. noah believed God and did what he instructed


But it says he found Grace/ favor with God,,,,it does say he walked with GOD,,,,,but if he were perfect,blameless,,why was there still a need for Grace! Noah did not go the way of the world. Do you think it was a heart condition?

  • Zacharias and his wife were blameless in the law,Paul was a Pharisee blameless,,,but still needed Grace,and a savior Feb 10 '20 at 13:56
