24 Wasn't God pleased he had created humans

  Genesis vs Genesis 

In the Old Testament Book of Genesis, God was satisfied that he created humankind 
  Hold on!

Later in Genesis:
God was sorry that he created them

In Genesis 1, God took satisfaction in having created mankind; it was a good idea 

Genesis 1:31 God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day. 

But in Genesis 6, God was dissatisfied; he thought that mankind was a mistake 

Genesis 6:6 The LORD was grieved that he had made man on the earth, and his heart was filled with pain. 7 So the Lord said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth.

Recap: Genesis says God made humans and was satisfied with his work. But later God was sorry he ever made them, so he planned to undo it with a flood.

It appears that God didn't expect humans to go bad. But I would expect an all-knowing deity expected it. God, armed with the knowledge of the future, wouldn't need to change his mind about them.
