Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Noe - The Greek way of writing "Noah." See Genesis 6-9. The coming of the Son of man would be as it was in the days of Noah:

1. In its being sudden and unexpected, the "precise time" not being made known, though the "general" indications had been given.

2. The world would be found as it was then.

Even so run; that ye may attain. 25 And every man that striveth in the games exerciseth self-control in all things. Now they do it to receive a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. 26 I therefore so run, as not uncertainly; so fight I, as not beating the air: 27 but I buffet my body, and bring it into bondage: lest by any means, after that I have preached to others,
