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.

Entering the Ark
1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation.#Mt 24:38–39; Lk 17:26–27; Heb 11:7 2You are to take with you seven pairs, a male and its female, of all the clean animals,#Gn 8:20; Lv 11:1–31; Dt 14:3–20 and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and its female, 3and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky — in order to keep offspring alive throughout the earth. 4Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and every living thing I have made I will wipe off the face of the earth.” 5And Noah did everything that the Lord commanded him.#Gn 6:22
6Noah was six hundred years old when the flood came and water covered the earth. 7So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives entered the ark because of the floodwaters. 8From the animals that are clean, and from the animals that are not clean, and from the birds and every creature that crawls on the ground, 9two of each, male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, just as God had commanded him. 10Seven days later the floodwaters came on the earth.
The Flood
11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the vast watery depths burst open,#Gn 8:2; Pr 8:28; Am 9:6 the floodgates of the sky were opened,#2Kg 7:19; Ps 78:23; Is 24:18; Mal 3:10 12and the rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On that same day Noah and his three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, entered the ark, along with Noah’s wife and his three sons’ wives. 14They entered it with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, all the creatures that crawl on the earth according to their kinds, every flying creature — all the birds and every winged creature — according to their kinds. 15Two of every creature that has the breath of life in it came to Noah and entered the ark. 16Those that entered, male and female of every creature, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in.
17The flood continued for forty days on the earth; the water increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth. 18The water surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19Then the water surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered. 20The mountains were covered as the water surged above them more than twenty feet.#7:20 Lit surged 15 cubits 21Every creature perished — those that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and those that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind. 22Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils#Gn 2:7  — everything on dry land died. 23He wiped out every living thing that was on the face of the earth, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark.#1Pt 3:20; 2Pt 2:5 24And the water surged on the earth 150 days.
