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.

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 Noach's 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 Noach's 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.
