    ????? ?? ???? ???? ??? ?? ???? ???? ?? ?????: ?(?????? ?, ?)

    ??”?: ?? ?? ????? ???? ???, ????? ????? ????? ???? ?????, ??? ???? ????? ?? ??????? ????:

    (Free Translation) Also Noach was lacking in belief, he believed but did not believe that the Flood will come and did not enter the Ark until the waters forced him in.

    Or you can read it like this:

    ??”?: ?? ?? ????? ???? ??? ?????, ????? ????? ???? ?????, ??? ???? ????? ?? ??????? ????:

    (Free Transailation) Noach also believed in the non-believers (that they will do Tesuvah), and hence did not belive that the Flood will come, and therefore did not enter the Ark until the waters forced him in.

    ????”? ???”? ?????? ??”?

    Yah yah, I also hold of messing up grammar to read things how I like.

    For example, you might read “Bereishes bara Elokim: es hashamyim v’es haaretz. Alternatively, Bereisheis bara: …(don’t want to even say it)

    “It should then say ????? ???? instead of ????? ????.”

    Perhaps, with the new reading, Noah had faith in some of them to do Teshuva. That’s the reason for the mem. All he needed was a few to tip the scales.

    It’s actually hard to take it at face value. After working on the Teiva for 120 years while facing criticism and being the target of many jokes, it’s really hard to think that he too doubted it.

    My way of understanding it is that he thought it will work out in the end. He figured Hashem won’t pull through with the threat and He’ll scare them or work something out. This is similar to the way children often think of their parents’ wild threats. It’s not that they question their parents’ ability to turn around mid-trip. They just don’t envision it actually happening.

    “It should then say ????? ???? instead of ????? ????. “

    If you say that, then the present lashon is also a problem. Why does it say he was “from those who had little faith”? I don’t need to know about the others, just say that Noah had little faith. It should say something like ??? ????

    You can read it in a different way that is chronologically correct. According to one Midrash, Hashen created 6 worlds before the present one. With that in mind read the passuk like this:

    “Bara Shis” – [HE] created six [worlds]

    “Bara Elokim et hashamyim v’et haaretz” [then] Hashem created the heaven and earth.
