Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 24:38

For as in the days that were before the flood they were (u) eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

(u) The word which the evangelist uses expresses the matter more fully then ours does: for it is a word which is used of brute beasts: and his meaning is that in those days men will pay attention to their appetites just like brute beasts: for otherwise there is nothing wrong with eating and drinking.
