V. 1-14 God does not forget His family in the ark, and carefully tells us many interesting details. God makes a fresh start with the human race.
V. 15-22 Once more, it is a beautiful start. Noah builds an altar to God and offers burnt offerings. Notice it is of the clean animals... another picture of Christ Who is God's Lamb. See Rev. 5:66And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth. (Revelation 5:6).
V. 21 Thousands of years were to pass by before Jesus would come to earth to die, yet Noah's sacrifice was a sweet smell to God of His Son's death.
