From Rabbi Baruch HaLevi Epstein
HaShem caused all (except people of Shem) to forget the Holy language, and thus, they lost thecommon language in which to communicate with each other,Therefore, in the Gemara cited above, the Rabbis did not argue. One Rabbi explained that they all used tospeak the one common Holy language, and the other Rabbi explains that each nation also spoke their own language (the number 70 being the standard expression at the time of Chazal).

Some places the word תודלות is written with two Vav’s, and in some places the word is written with onlyone Vav. In the latter case (of one Vav) this indicates that from one side the “generation” contains fullmeaning and from another side, the “generation” is without complete meaning. Here, in this verse, theword with one Vav indicates that the phrase that follows (“Tzadik”) is not complete. The same isindicated later regarding the תדלות (one Vav) of Yitzchak, which contained Yaacov and Eisav.

What is this matter of “going” (also found by Chanoch and by the Avos)? Understand that a righteous person fulfills the verse והעד ךיכרד לכב (in all one’s ways, know Him), that in every place that a persongoes, one should not remove one’s mind from HaShem. This implies that in all one’s “going” even inmatters of Chol (mundane) one should contemplate and think about HaShem and His Torah.

Chazal stated that the Generation of the Flood were punished since they engaged in stealing one fromanother. However, they did perform many sins, seemingly more damaging, why was the floodspecifically on account of the sin of stealing?Thus, one needs to understand that the punishment did not come to this Generation for their harsher sins,since peaceful personal relationships protected them from judgment on those sins. But once they beganstealing from each other, this led to separation and hatred. And at that point, the previously deserved punishments for the harsher sins were now judged.

In the Medrash Rabbah, Rabbi Yehuda and Rabbi Nechemia disagree. One says Noach placed a windowin the Ark, and one says Noach placed a brilliant stone which provided light as if the sun shone.A window causes a double effect: it brings light from the outside to the inside, plus allows what occursinside to be seen to the outside. However, an internal light source shines inside, but does not allow theoutside to see what occurs inside.This follows the discussion as to how to consider the righteousness of Noach in his generation (ascompared to Avrohom in his generation).According to the opinion that Noach placed a window in the Ark, this reflects the concept that Noach’scomplete righteousness allowed him the ability to see what was inside of the surrounding people of histime as to their true nature of wickedness; nevertheless, Noach did not allow himself to be affected bythem.www.parshapages.blogspot.com
