This would seem to conflict with other texts that say God knows everything. (Ps. 139:2-4; Jer. 17:10; Heb. 4:13) Moreover, Isaiah 49:15 has God Himself saying that He will not forget his holy ones. Therefore, how are we to reconcile what appears to be God temporarily forgetting Noah? God never forgot Noah. “Remembered” is being used in a way that is an idiomatic expression and does not literally mean that God forgot Noah. A husband will use a similar expression when he remembers his wife on their anniversary. This does not mean the husband forgot their mate existed. In Scripture, to ‘remember’ is not always to recall to mind, but can be used to express interest, care, and concern for another.
