1Also the Lord said to Noah, Enter thou and all thine house into the ship, for I saw thee alone were just before me in this generation.
2Of all clean living beasts, thou shalt take by seven and by seven, male and female; forsooth of unclean living beasts, thou shalt take by twain and by twain [or two and two], male and female;
3and also of [the] volatiles [or fowls] of heaven, thou shalt take, by seven and by seven, male and female, that their seed be saved on the face of all earth.
4For yet and after seven days, I shall rain on [the] earth forty days and forty nights, and I shall do away all substance which I made, from the face of [the] earth.
5Therefore Noah did all things which the Lord commanded to him.
6And he was of six hundred years, when the waters of the great flood flowed on [the] earth.
7And Noah entered into the ship, and his sons, and his wife, and the wives of his sons, entered with him, for the waters of the great flood.
8And of living beasts clean and unclean, and of [the] birds of heaven, and of each beast which is moved on [the] earth,
9by twain and by twain [or two and two], male and female entered to Noah into the ship, as the Lord commanded to Noah.
10And when seven days had passed, the waters of the great flood flowed on [the] earth.
11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, all the wells of the great sea were broken, and the windows of heaven were opened,
12and rain was made on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the end of that day Noah entered, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, his sons, and his wife, and the [three] wives of his sons, entered with them into the ship.
14They entered, and each beast by his kind, and all work beasts in their kind, and each beast which is moved on [the] earth in his kind, and each volatile by his kind; all birds and all volatiles [or fowls],
15entered to Noah into the ship, by twain and by twain [or two and two] of each flesh in which the spirit of life was.
16And those that entered, entered male and female of each flesh, as God commanded to him. And the Lord enclosed him from withoutforth.
17And the great flood was made forty days and forty nights on [the] earth, and the waters were multiplied, and raised the ship on high from the earth.
18The waters flowed greatly, and filled all things in the face of the earth. Forsooth the ship was borne on the waters.
19And the waters had mastery greatly on [the] earth, and all [the] high hills under all of heaven were covered;
20the water was higher, by fifteen cubits, over the hills which it covered.
21And each flesh was wasted that moved on [the] earth, of birds, of living beasts, of unreasonable beasts, and of all reptiles or all creeping beasts that creep on [the] earth.
22All men, and all things in which the breathing of life was in [the] earth, were dead.
23And God did away all the substance that was on [the] earth, from man till to beast, as well a creeping beast, as the birds of heaven; and those [or they] were done away from [the] earth. Forsooth Noah dwelled alone, and they that were with him in the ship.
24And the waters of the great flood over-went the earth an hundred and fifty days.
