Genesis 7

Entering the Ark
1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation.#Mt 24:38–39; Lk 17:26–27; Heb 11:7 2You are to take with you seven pairs, a male and its female, of all the clean animals,#Gn 8:20; Lv 11:1–31; Dt 14:3–20 and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and its female, 3and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky — in order to keep offspring alive throughout the earth. 4Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and every living thing I have made I will wipe off the face of the earth.” 5And Noah did everything that the Lord commanded him.#Gn 6:22
6Noah was six hundred years old when the flood came and water covered the earth. 7So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives entered the ark because of the floodwaters. 8From the animals that are clean, and from the animals that are not clean, and from the birds and every creature that crawls on the ground, 9two of each, male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, just as God had commanded him. 10Seven days later the floodwaters came on the earth.
The Flood
11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the vast watery depths burst open,#Gn 8:2; Pr 8:28; Am 9:6 the floodgates of the sky were opened,#2Kg 7:19; Ps 78:23; Is 24:18; Mal 3:10 12and the rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On that same day Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, entered the ark, along with Noah’s wife and his three sons’ wives. 14They entered it with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, all the creatures that crawl on the earth according to their kinds, every flying creature — all the birds and every winged creature — according to their kinds. 15Two of every creature that has the breath of life in it came to Noah and entered the ark. 16Those that entered, male and female of every creature, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in.
17The flood continued for forty days on the earth; the water increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth. 18The water surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19Then the water surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered. 20The mountains were covered as the water surged above them more than twenty feet.#7:20 Lit surged 15 cubits 21Every creature perished — those that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and those that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind. 22Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils#Gn 2:7  — everything on dry land died. 23He wiped out every living thing that was on the face of the earth, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.#1Pt 3:20; 2Pt 2:5 24And the water surged on the earth 150 days.

1And Hashem said unto Noach, Come thou and all thy bais into the tevah (ark); for thee have I found tzaddik before Me in dor hazeh.
2Of every behemah hatehorah thou shalt take to thee by sevens; the male and his mate; and of behemah that are not tehorah by two, the male and his mate.
3Of also Oph HaShomayim by sevens, the zachar and the nekevah; to keep zera alive upon the face of kol ha'aretz.
4For shivah yamim from now, and I will cause it to rain upon ha'aretz arba'im yom and arba'im lailah; and every living creature that I have made will I wipe out from off the p'nei ha'adamah. 5And Noach did according unto all that Hashem commanded him.
6And Noach was shesh me'ot shanah when the mabbul waters were upon ha'aretz.
7And Noach entered in, and his banim, and his isha, and nashim of his banim with him, into the tevah (ark), because of the waters of the mabbul.
8Of behemah hatehorah, and of behemah that are not tehorah, and of haoph, and of every thing that creepeth upon ha'adamah,
9There went in shnayim shnayim unto Noach into the tevah (ark), the zachar and the nekevah, as Elohim had commanded Noach.
10And it came to pass after shivat hayamim, that the waters of the mabbul were upon ha'aretz.
11In the six hundredth year of Noachʼs life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of Shomayim were opened.
12And the geshem was upon ha'aretz arba'im yom and arba'im lailah.
13On that very yom entered Noach, and Shem, and Cham, and Yephet, the bnei Noach, and Noachʼs isha, and the three nashim of his banim with them, into the tevah (ark);
14They, and every beast after its kind, and kol habehemah after their kind, and every remes that crawls upon ha'aretz after its kind, and kol haoph after its kind, every bird of every sort.
15And they went in unto Noach into the tevah (ark), shnayim shnayim of kol habasar, wherein is the ruach chayyim.
16And they that went in, went in zachar and nekevah of kol basar, as Elohim had commanded him; then Hashem shut him in.
17And the mabbul was arba'im yom upon ha'aretz; and the waters increased, and lifted up the tevah (ark), and it rose above ha'aretz.
18And the waters rose, and were increased greatly upon ha'aretz; and the tevah (ark) floated upon the face of the waters.
19And the waters rose exceedingly upon ha'aretz; and all the high hills, that were under kol HaShomayim, were covered.
20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters rise; and the harim were covered.
21And kol basar perished that moved upon ha'aretz, both of Oph, and of Behemah, and of Beast, and of every Swarming Thing that swarms upon ha'aretz, and kol haadam;
22All in whose nostrils was the ruach chayyim, of all that was in the dry land, perished.
23And every living creature was wiped out which was upon the p'nei haadamah, both Adam, and Behemah, and the Remes, and the Oph HaShomayim; and they were wiped out from ha'aretz: and Noach only remained alive, and they that were with him in the tevah (ark).
24And the waters flooded upon ha'aretz a hundred and fifty days.
