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.

The Great Flood
(2 Peter 3:1–7)
1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and all your family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2You are to take with you seven pairs of #7:2 Or by sevens; also in verse 3 every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate; a pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate; 3and seven pairs of every kind of bird of the air, male and female, to preserve their offspring on the face of all the earth. 4For seven 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 thing I have made.”
5And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him.
6Now Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters came upon the earth. 7And Noah and his wife, with his sons and their wives, entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8The clean and unclean animals, the birds, and everything that crawls along the ground 9came to Noah to enter the ark, two by two, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
10And after seven days the floodwaters came upon the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12And the rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13On that very day Noah entered the ark, along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and his wife, and the three wives of his sons— 14they and every kind of wild animal, livestock, crawling creature, bird, and winged creature. 15They came to Noah to enter the ark, two by two of every creature #7:15 Literally of all flesh; similarly in verses 16 and 21 with the breath of life. 16And they entered, the 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 the waters rose and lifted the ark high above the earth. 18So the waters continued to surge and rise greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the waters. 19Finally, the waters completely inundated the earth, so that all the high mountains under all the heavens were covered.
20The waters rose and covered the mountaintops to a depth of fifteen cubits.#7:20 15 cubits is approximately 22.5 feet or 6.9 meters. 21And every living thing that moved upon the earth perished—birds, livestock, animals, every creature that swarms upon the earth, and all mankind. 22Of all that was on dry land, everything that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23And every living thing on the face of the earth was destroyed—man and livestock, crawling creatures and birds of the air; they were blotted out from the earth, and only Noah and those with him in the ark remained.
24And the waters prevailed upon the earth for 150 days.
