These are the chronicles of Noah:

Noah was a righteous man, faultless in his generation. Noah walked with God.
Eleh toldot Noach Noach ish tsadik tamim hayah bedorotav et-ha'Elohim hithalech Noach.

6:10 Noah fathered three sons: Shem, Ham and Yefeth.
Vayoled Noach shloshah vanim et-Shem et-Cham ve'et-Yafet.
6:11 The world was corrupt before God, and the land was filled with crime.
Vatishachet ha'arets lifney ha'Elohim vatimale ha'arets chamas.
