Some times its held that the verse in Genesis 6:3 means that God is saying man shall live to be 120 years old. Mainly, however, he is saying man has 120 years, with Noah as his Preacher, before he brings the judgment upon the world of the flood. Though it is interesting that after the flood, lifespans continually decrease in length until the upper limits of age are around 120 years, as they are likewise today.
