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.

1 And the Lord said to him: "Enter the ark, you and all your house. For I have seen you to be just in my sight, within this generation.
2 From all the clean animals, take seven and seven, the male and the female. Yet truly, from animals that are unclean, take two and two, the male and the female.
3 But also from the birds of the air, take seven and seven, the male and the female, so that offspring may be saved upon the face of the whole earth.
4 For from that point, and after seven days, I will rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. And I will wipe away every substance that I have made, from the surface of the earth."
5 Therefore, Noah did all things just as the Lord had commanded him.
6 And he was six hundred years old when the waters of the great flood inundated the earth.
7 And Noah entered into the ark, and his sons, his wife, and the wives of his sons with him, because of the waters of the great flood.
8 And from the animals both clean and unclean, and from the birds, and from everything that moves upon the earth,
9 two by two they were brought into the ark to Noah, male and female, just as the Lord had instructed Noah.
10 And when seven days had passed, the waters of the great flood inundated the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, all the fountains of the great abyss were released, and the floodgates of heaven were opened.
12 And rain came upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13 On the very same day, Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and his wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark.
14 They and every animal according to its kind, and all the cattle in their kind, and everything that moves upon the earth in their kind, and every flying thing according to its kind, all the birds and all that can fly,
15 entered the ark to Noah, two by two out of all that is flesh, in which there was the breath of life.
16 And those that entered went in male and female, from all that is flesh, just as God had instructed him. And then the Lord closed him in from the outside.
17 And the great flood occurred for forty days upon the earth. And the waters were increased, and they lifted the ark high above the land.
18 For they overflowed greatly, and they filled everything on the surface of the earth. And then the ark was carried across the waters.
19 And the waters prevailed beyond measure across the earth. And all the lofty mountains under the whole heaven were covered.
20 The water was fifteen cubits higher than the mountains which it covered.
21 And all flesh was consumed which moved upon the earth: flying things, animals, wild beasts, and all moving things that crawl upon the ground. And all men,
22 and everything in which there is the breath of life on earth, died.
23 And he wiped away all substance that was upon the earth, from man to animal, the crawling things just as much as the flying things of the air. And they were wiped away from the earth. But only Noah remained, and those who were with him in the ark.
24 And the waters possessed the earth for one hundred and fifty days.
