Genesis 7

7
1The Lord told Noah, “Go into the ark with all your family. I have seen how you are a man of integrity, living a moral life among the people of this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs, male and female, of every kind of clean animal, and one pair, male and female, of every kind of unclean animal. 3In addition take seven pairs, male and female, of all the birds, so their different kinds will survive throughout the earth. 4In seven days I'm going to make it rain for forty days and nights. I'm going to wipe out from the surface of the earth all the living creatures I made.”
5Noah did exactly what the Lord ordered him to do.
6Noah was 600 when the flood waters covered the earth. 7Noah went into the ark, taking with him his wife and his sons and their wives, because of the flood. 8Clean and unclean animals, birds, and creatures that run along the ground, 9went into the ark with Noah. They came in pairs, male and female, just as God had told Noah. 10After seven days the floodwaters swept over the earth.
11Noah was 600 when on the seventeenth day of the second month all the subterranean waters burst through the earth, and heavy rain poured down from the sky. 12Rain continue to fall on the earth for forty days and nights.
13That was the actual day#7:13. “Actual day”: referring back to the day mentioned in verse 11. when Noah, his wife, and their sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth together with their three wives went into the ark. 14They had with them every kind of wild animals, livestock, creatures that run along the ground, and birds—everything with wings. 15They all came into the ark with Noah in pairs—every living thing that breathes. 16A male and a female of every creature entered, as God had told Noah. Then the Lord shut the door behind him.
17The flood increased for forty days, lifting the ark so that it floated up from the earth. 18The floodwaters surged and grew deeper and deeper over the earth, but the ark floated along on the surface. 19Finally the water grew so deep that even the highest mountains were covered—all that could be seen was sky. 20The water rose so much that it was higher than the mountains by fifteen cubits. 21Everything living on earth died—the birds, livestock, wild animals, all creatures that run along the ground, and all the people. 22Everything on land that breathed, died. 23The Lord wiped out all life on earth—people, livestock, creatures that run along the ground, and birds. All were killed. The only ones left were Noah and those with him on the ark. 24The earth remained flooded for 150 days.

Genesis 7

7
1Yahweh said to Noah, “Come with all of your household into the ship, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation. 2You shall take seven pairs of every clean animal with you, the male and his female. Of the animals that are not clean, take two, the male and his female. 3Also of the birds of the sky, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the earth. 4In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. I will destroy every living thing that I have made from the surface of the ground.”
5Noah did everything that Yahweh commanded him.
6Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth. 7Noah went into the ship with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, because of the floodwaters. 8Clean animals, unclean animals, birds, and everything that creeps on the ground 9went by pairs to Noah into the ship, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10After the seven days, the floodwaters came on the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky’s windows were opened. 12It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the same day Noah, and Shem, Ham, and Japheth—the sons of Noah—and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the ship— 14they, and every animal after its kind, all the livestock after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15Pairs from all flesh with the breath of life in them went into the ship to Noah. 16Those who went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; then Yahweh shut him in. 17The flood was forty days on the earth. The waters increased, and lifted up the ship, and it was lifted up above the earth. 18The waters rose, and increased greatly on the earth; and the ship floated on the surface of the waters. 19The waters rose very high on the earth. All the high mountains that were under the whole sky were covered. 20The waters rose fifteen cubits#A cubit is the length from the tip of the middle finger to the elbow on a man’s arm, or about 18 inches or 46 centimeters. higher, and the mountains were covered. 21All flesh died that moved on the earth, including birds, livestock, animals, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 22All on the dry land, in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died. 23Every living thing was destroyed that was on the surface of the ground, including man, livestock, creeping things, and birds of the sky. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ship. 24The waters flooded the earth one hundred fifty days.
