Genesis 6:5–8 NASB95
Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

Main Points

God knows what is happening

Proverbs 15:3 NASB95
The eyes of the Lord are in every place, Watching the evil and the good.
Proverbs 5:21 NASB95
For the ways of a man are before the eyes of the Lord, And He watches all his paths.

God watches over specific things

The Land of Canaan
Deuteronomy 11:11–12 NASB95
“But the land into which you are about to cross to possess it, a land of hills and valleys, drinks water from the rain of heaven, a land for which the Lord your God cares; the eyes of the Lord your God are always on it, from the beginning even to the end of the year.
The Righteous
Psalm 34:15 NASB95
The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous And His ears are open to their cry.
Deuteronomy
Job 36:7 NASB95
“He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous; But with kings on the throne He has seated them forever, and they are exalted.
Psalm 33:13–19 NASB95
The Lord looks from heaven; He sees all the sons of men; From His dwelling place He looks out On all the inhabitants of the earth, He who fashions the hearts of them all, He who understands all their works. The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.
Psalm 33:18–19 NASB95
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death And to keep them alive in famine.
Psalm 33.13-1
Noah was a righteous man in his day
Genesis 6:8–9 NASB95
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God.
Genesis 6.
The Loyal heart
2 Chronicles 16:9 NASB95
“For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His. You have acted foolishly in this. Indeed, from now on you will surely have wars.”
completely His - loyal heart; perfect heart
it means wholehearted devoted to God

God judges righteously

Psalm 11.4-7
Psalm 11:4–7 NASB95
The Lord is in His holy temple; the Lord’s throne is in heaven; His eyes behold, His eyelids test the sons of men. The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates. Upon the wicked He will rain snares; Fire and brimstone and burning wind will be the portion of their cup. For the Lord is righteous, He loves righteousness; The upright will behold His face.
