This book is a poetic version of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. The plot is completely based on the Bible, without altering or omitting any essential part of it. Therefore all the characters and events are as in the original Book of Genesis.
The poem is divided into twelve chapters, which reveal the principal epochs described in Genesis, beginning with Adam and Eve and the Creation of the World, and ending with the death of Israel and the death of Joseph.
The form of a verse will let the readers go through the descriptions of the main world famous events and phenomena (the Flood, the Tower of Babel, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra and so on) without stumbling on the difficulties of the authentic text. The poem will make it easier to perceive and memorize the text of the Bible, which is especially useful for schoolchildren and teachers, who can adopt the poem for songs and stage performances.
In the Book of Genesis, chapter 6, there is an intriguing mentioning of the time when Sons of God took men’s daughters as wives, and there were giants on the Earth. Then all humans and all earthly creatures became corrupt, and the whole land was devastated, and the miserable called for the Lord, for Him to see the evil which was happening on the Earth. All this led to the Flood, which destroyed every living thing, except those in Noah’s Ark.
A more detailed story about the fallen angels is depicted in the Book of Enoch. This book, Once before the Flood, is a poetic legend, partially based on the contents of both, Genesis: 6 and the Book of Enoch. It is an artistic attempt to see how the human world once turned into a mess, which only deserved termination.
