Genesis 7

7
1And the Lord said vnto Noah, Enter thou and all thine house into the Arke: for thee haue I seene righteous before me in this age. 2Of euery cleane beast thou shalt take to thee by seuens, the male and his female: but of vncleane beastes by couples, the male and his female. 3Of the foules also of the heauen by seuens, male and female, to keepe seede aliue vpon the whole earth. 4For seuen dayes hence I will cause it raine vpon the earth fourtie dayes and fourtie nightes, and all the substance that I haue made, will I destroy from off the earth. 5Noah therefore did according vnto all that the Lord commanded him. 6And Noah was sixe hundreth yeeres olde, when the flood of waters was vpon the earth. 7So Noah entred and his sonnes, and his wife, and his sonnes wiues with him into the Arke, because of the waters of the flood. 8Of the cleane beastes, and of the vncleane beastes, and of the foules, and of all that creepeth vpon the earth, 9There came two and two vnto Noah into the Arke, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10And so after seuen dayes the waters of the flood were vpon the earth. 11In the sixe hundreth yeere of Noahs life in the second moneth, the seuetenth day of the moneth, in the same day were all the fountaines of the great deepe broken vp, and the windowes of heauen were opened, 12And the raine was vpon the earth fourtie dayes and fourtie nightes. 13In the selfe same day entred Noah with Shem, and Ham and Iapheth, the sonnes of Noah, and Noahs wife, and the three wiues of his sonnes with them into the Arke. 14They and euery beast after his kinde, and all cattell after their kinde, and euery thing that creepeth and moueth vpon the earth after his kinde, and euery foule after his kinde, euen euery bird of euery fether. 15For they came to Noah into ye Arke, two and two, of all flesh wherein is ye breath of life. 16And they entring in, came male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in. 17Then ye flood was fourtie dayes vpon the earth, and the waters were increased, and bare vp the Arke, which was lift vp aboue the earth. 18The waters also waxed strong, and were increased exceedingly vpon the earth, and the Arke went vpon the waters. 19The waters preuailed so exceedingly vpon the earth, that all the high mountaines, that are vnder the whole heauen, were couered. 20Fifteene cubites vpwarde did the waters preuaile, when the mountaines were couered. 21Then all flesh perished that moued vpon the earth, both foule and cattell and beast, and euery thing that creepeth and moueth vpon the earth, and euery man. 22Euery thing in whose nostrels the spirit of life did breathe, whatsoeuer they were in the drie land, they died. 23So he destroyed euery thing that was vpon the earth, from man to beast, to ye creeping thing, and to the foule of the heauen: they were euen destroyed from the earth. And Noah onely remained; and they that were with him in ye Arke. 24And the waters preuailed vpon the earth an hundreth and fiftie dayes.

The Flood
1The LORD said to Noah, “Go into the boat with your whole family; I have found that you are the only one in all the world who does what is right. 2Take with you seven pairs of each kind of ritually clean animal, but only one pair of each kind of unclean animal. 3Take also seven pairs of each kind of bird. Do this so that every kind of animal and bird will be kept alive to reproduce again on the earth. 4Seven days from now I am going to send rain that will fall for forty days and nights, in order to destroy all the living beings that I have made.” 5And Noah did everything that the LORD commanded.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came on the earth. 7#Mt 24.38–39; Lk 17.27He and his wife, and his sons and their wives, went into the boat to escape the flood. 8A male and a female of every kind of animal and bird, whether ritually clean or unclean, 9went into the boat with Noah, as God had commanded. 10Seven days later the flood came.
11 # 2 Pet 3.6 When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month all the outlets of the vast body of water beneath the earth burst open, all the floodgates of the sky were opened, 12and rain fell on the earth for forty days and nights. 13On that same day Noah and his wife went into the boat with their three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives. 14With them went every kind of animal, domestic and wild, large and small, and every kind of bird. 15A male and a female of each kind of living being went into the boat with Noah, 16as God had commanded. Then the LORD shut the door behind Noah.
17The flood continued for forty days, and the water became deep enough for the boat to float. 18The water became deeper, and the boat drifted on the surface. 19It became so deep that it covered the highest mountains; 20it went on rising until it was about seven metres above the tops of the mountains. 21Every living being on the earth died — every bird, every animal, and every person. 22Everything on earth that breathed died. 23The LORD destroyed all living beings on the earth — human beings, animals, and birds. The only ones left were Noah and those who were with him in the boat. 24The water did not start going down for 150 days.
