Genesis 7

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.

Genesis 7

7
1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark with your whole family. I know that you are a godly man among the people of today. 2Take seven pairs of every kind of ‘clean’ animal with you. Take a male and a female of each kind. Take one pair of every kind of animal that is not ‘clean.’ Take a male and a female of each kind. 3Also take seven pairs of every kind of bird. Take a male and a female of each kind. Then every kind will be kept alive. They can spread out again over the whole earth. 4Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth. It will rain for 40 days and 40 nights. I will destroy from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
5Noah did everything the Lord commanded him to do.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came on the earth. 7He and his sons entered the ark. His wife and his sons’ wives went with them. They entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8Male and female pairs of “clean” animals and pairs of animals that were not “clean” came to Noah. So did male and female pairs of birds and of all the creatures that move along the ground. 9All of them came to Noah and entered the ark. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah. 10After seven days the flood came on the earth.
11Noah was 600 years old. It was the 17th day of the second month of the year. On that day all of the springs at the bottom of the oceans burst open. God opened the windows of the sky. 12Rain fell on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.
13On that same day Noah entered the ark together with his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth. Noah’s wife and the wives of his three sons also entered it. 14They had every kind of wild animal with them. They had every kind of livestock, creature that moves along the ground, and bird that flies. 15Pairs of all living creatures that breathe came to Noah and entered the ark. 16The animals going in were male and female of every living thing. Everything happened just as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.
17For 40 days the flood kept coming on the earth. As the waters rose higher, they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18The waters rose higher and higher on the earth. And the ark floated on the water. 19The waters rose on the earth until all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered. 20The waters continued to rise until they covered the mountains by more than 20 feet. 21Every living thing that moved on land died. The birds, the livestock and the wild animals died. All of the creatures that fill the earth also died. And so did every human being. 22Every breathing thing on dry land died. 23Every living thing on earth was wiped out. People and animals were destroyed. The creatures that move along the ground and the birds in the sky were wiped out. Everything on earth was destroyed. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left.
24The waters flooded the earth for 150 days.
