Genesis 7

7
Deliverance Through the Flood
1Then Adonai said to Noah, “Come—you and all your household—into the ark. For you only do I perceive as righteous before Me in this generation.
2Of every clean animal you shall take with you seven of each kind, male and female; and of the animals which themselves are not clean two, male and female;
3also of the flying creatures of the sky seven of every kind, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of the whole land.
4For in seven more days, I am going to make it rain upon the land forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe out all existence that I made from the face of the ground.
5So Noah did all just as Adonai commanded him.
6Now Noah was 600 years old when the flood came—water upon the land.
7So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, entered the ark because of the floodwaters.
8Of the clean animals and unclean animals, the flying creatures and everything that crawls on the ground,
9two by two they came to Noah, into the ark, male and female, just as God commanded Noah.
10After the seven days, the floodwaters were upon the land.
11In the six-hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on this day, all the water sources of the great deep burst open, and the windows of the sky were opened.
12Then there was rain upon the land 40 days and 40 nights.
13On that same day Noah, along with Noah’s sons Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah’s wife and the three wives of Noah’s sons with them, entered the ark,
14they and every animal according to its kind, and all the livestock according to its kind, and every crawling creature that crawls on the land according to its kind, and every flying creature according to its kind, every bird, every winged creature.
15So to Noah and into the ark they went by twos—all flesh in which was the spirit of life.
16Those that came, male and female of all flesh, came just as God commanded him. Then Adonai shut him in.
17The flood was forty days upon the land, and the waters increased and lifted the ark, so that it rose above the land.
18The waters overpowered and became very mighty over the land, and the ark drifted on the surface of the water.
19The waters completely overpowered the land so that all the high mountains beneath the entire sky were covered.
20The waters rose 15 cubits higher, as the mountains were covered.
21All flesh perished—those that crawl on the land, the flying creatures, livestock, wild animals, all creatures that swarm upon the land, and all humankind.
22Everything that had the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils—everything on dry land—died.
23So He wiped out all existence that was upon the surface of the ground, everything from people to livestock, to crawling creatures, and to flying creatures of the sky. They were wiped out off the land. Only Noah and those with him in the ark survived.
24The waters overpowered the land for 150 days.

Bereshis 7

7
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.
