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.

1The Lord then said to Noah, ‘Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. 4Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.’
5And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him.
6Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth. 7And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, 9male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month – on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12And rain fell on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark. 14They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. 15Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark. 16The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.
17For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.#7:20 That is, about 6.8 metres#7:20 Or rose more than fifteen cubits, and the mountains were covered 21Every living thing that moved on land perished – birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
24The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
