CHAPTER 7
1Also the Lord said to Noah, Enter thou and all thine house into the ship, for I saw thee alone were just before me in this generation.
2Of all clean living beasts, thou shalt take by seven and by seven, male and female; forsooth of unclean living beasts, thou shalt take by twain and by twain [or two and two], male and female;
3and also of [the] volatiles [or fowls] of heaven, thou shalt take, by seven and by seven, male and female, that their seed be saved on the face of all earth.
4For yet and after seven days, I shall rain on [the] earth forty days and forty nights, and I shall do away all substance which I made, from the face of [the] earth.
5Therefore Noah did all things which the Lord commanded to him.
6And he was of six hundred years, when the waters of the great flood flowed on [the] earth.
7And Noah entered into the ship, and his sons, and his wife, and the wives of his sons, entered with him, for the waters of the great flood.
8And of living beasts clean and unclean, and of [the] birds of heaven, and of each beast which is moved on [the] earth,
9by twain and by twain [or two and two], male and female entered to Noah into the ship, as the Lord commanded to Noah.
10And when seven days had passed, the waters of the great flood flowed on [the] earth.
11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, all the wells of the great sea were broken, and the windows of heaven were opened,
12and rain was made on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the end of that day Noah entered, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, his sons, and his wife, and the [three] wives of his sons, entered with them into the ship.
14They entered, and each beast by his kind, and all work beasts in their kind, and each beast which is moved on [the] earth in his kind, and each volatile by his kind; all birds and all volatiles [or fowls],
15entered to Noah into the ship, by twain and by twain [or two and two] of each flesh in which the spirit of life was.
16And those that entered, entered male and female of each flesh, as God commanded to him. And the Lord enclosed him from withoutforth.
17And the great flood was made forty days and forty nights on [the] earth, and the waters were multiplied, and raised the ship on high from the earth.
18The waters flowed greatly, and filled all things in the face of the earth. Forsooth the ship was borne on the waters.
19And the waters had mastery greatly on [the] earth, and all [the] high hills under all of heaven were covered;
20the water was higher, by fifteen cubits, over the hills which it covered.
21And each flesh was wasted that moved on [the] earth, of birds, of living beasts, of unreasonable beasts, and of all reptiles or all creeping beasts that creep on [the] earth.
22All men, and all things in which the breathing of life was in [the] earth, were dead.
23And God did away all the substance that was on [the] earth, from man till to beast, as well a creeping beast, as the birds of heaven; and those [or they] were done away from [the] earth. Forsooth Noah dwelled alone, and they that were with him in the ship.
24And the waters of the great flood over-went the earth an 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 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 23 feet or about 6.8 meters#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.
