"And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted His way upon the earth." Gen. 6:12.
NOTE. - As already proved, God's "way" concerning marriage was that a man should have but one wife. His way "corrupted" brought a plurality of wives and other excesses, until because of the prevalence of licentiousness, strife, and murder, "God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth." Gen. 6:13. This is the culmination of the first era of contest between the original and the counterfeit.
