Comparison: 2 Nephi 26:11 -> Genesis 6:3

2 Nephi 26:11 (1830 edition page 107) Genesis 6:3
for the spirit of the Lord will not always strive with man. And when the spirit ceaseth to strive with man, then cometh speedy destruction; and this grieveth my soul. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
