Genesis 7

7
1#Ge 6:9; 7:7The Lord said to Noah, “You and your entire household go into the ark, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me among this generation. 2#Ge 8:20; Lev 11:1–47Take with you seven each of every clean animal, the male and its female, and two each of every unclean animal, the male and its female, 3and seven each of birds of the air, the male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth. 4#Ge 6:17; 7:12In seven days I will cause it to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and every living thing that I have made I will destroy from the face of the earth.”
5#Ge 6:22And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him.
6#Ge 5:32Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came upon the earth. 7#Ge 6:18; 7:1And Noah went with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives into the ark because of the floodwaters. 8Everything that creeps on the land from clean and unclean animals and birds 9came in two by two, male and female, to Noah into the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10#Ge 7:4After seven days, the waters of the flood were on the earth.
11#Ge 8:2; 1:7; 2Ki 7:19In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the same day, all the fountains of the great deep burst open and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12#Ge 7:4; 7:17The rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13#Ge 6:18; 7:1On the very same day Noah and the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark. 14They and every wild animal according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, every bird of every sort, 15went with Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh in which was the breath of life. 16#Ge 7:2–3So they went in, male and female of all flesh, just as God had commanded him; then the Lord shut him in.
17#Ge 7:4; 7:12The flood was on the earth forty days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose up above the earth. 18The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19The water prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered. 20The waters prevailed upward and the mountains were covered fifteen cubits deep.#About 23 feet, or 6.8 meters. 21#Ge 6:13; 6:17All flesh that moved on the earth died: birds and livestock and beasts, and every creeping thing that crept on the earth, and every man. 22#Ge 2:7All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23#2Pe 2:5; 1Pe 3:20; Heb 11:7So He blotted out every living thing which was on the face of the ground, both man and animals and the creeping things and the birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth, and only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive.
24The waters prevailed on the earth for one hundred and fifty days.

1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark with your whole family. I know that you are a godly man among the people of today. 2Take seven pairs of every kind of ‘clean’ animal with you. Take a male and a female of each kind. Take one pair of every kind of animal that is not ‘clean.’ Take a male and a female of each kind. 3Also take seven pairs of every kind of bird. Take a male and a female of each kind. Then every kind will be kept alive. They can spread out again over the whole earth. 4Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth. It will rain for 40 days and 40 nights. I will destroy from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
5Noah did everything the Lord commanded him to do.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came on the earth. 7He and his sons entered the ark. His wife and his sons’ wives went with them. They entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8Male and female pairs of “clean” animals and pairs of animals that were not “clean” came to Noah. So did male and female pairs of birds and of all the creatures that move along the ground. 9All of them came to Noah and entered the ark. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah. 10After seven days the flood came on the earth.
11Noah was 600 years old. It was the 17th day of the second month of the year. On that day all of the springs at the bottom of the oceans burst open. God opened the windows of the sky. 12Rain fell on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.
13On that same day Noah entered the ark together with his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth. Noah’s wife and the wives of his three sons also entered it. 14They had every kind of wild animal with them. They had every kind of livestock, creature that moves along the ground, and bird that flies. 15Pairs of all living creatures that breathe came to Noah and entered the ark. 16The animals going in were male and female of every living thing. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.
17For 40 days the flood kept coming on the earth. As the waters rose higher, they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18The waters rose higher and higher on the earth. And the ark floated on the water. 19The waters rose on the earth until all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered. 20The waters continued to rise until they covered the mountains by more than 20 feet. 21Every living thing that moved on land died. The birds, the livestock and the wild animals died. All of the creatures that fill the earth also died. And so did every human being. 22Every breathing thing on dry land died. 23Every living thing on earth was wiped out. People and animals were destroyed. The creatures that move along the ground and the birds in the sky were wiped out. Everything on earth was destroyed. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left.
24The waters flooded the earth for 150 days.
