Berĕshith (Genesis) 7

7
1And יהוה said to Noaḥ, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.
2“Of all the clean beasts take with you seven pairs, a male and his female; and of the beasts that are unclean two, a male and his female;
3and of birds of the heavens seven pairs, male and female, to keep offspring alive on the face of all the earth.
4“For after seven more days I am sending rain on the earth, forty days and forty nights, and shall wipe from the face of the earth all that stand that I created.”
5And Noaḥ did according to all that יהוה commanded him.
6Now Noaḥ was six hundred years old when the flood-waters were on the earth.
7And Noaḥ and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
8Of the clean beasts and of the beasts that are unclean, and of birds, and of all that creep on the earth,
9two by two they went into the ark to Noaḥ, male and female, as Elohim had commanded Noaḥ.
10And it came to be after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noaḥ’s life, in the second new moon,#Month the seventeenth day of the moon,#Month on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the heavens were opened.
12And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13On that same day Noaḥ and Shĕm and Ḥam and Yapheth, the sons of Noaḥ, and Noaḥ’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark,
14they and every life form after its kind, and every beast after its kind, and every creeping creature that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort.
15And they went into the ark to Noaḥ, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life.
16And those going in, male and female of all flesh, went in as Elohim had commanded him, and יהוה shut him in.
17And the flood was on the earth forty days, and the waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth.
18And the waters were mighty and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters.
19And the waters were exceedingly mighty on the earth, and all the high mountains under all the heavens were covered.
20The waters became mighty, fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.
21And all flesh died – the creeping creature on the earth – birds and cattle and beasts and every swarming creature that swarms on the earth, and all mankind.
22All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died.
23So He wiped off all that stand, which were on the face of the ground – both man and beast, creeping creature and bird of the heavens. And they were wiped off from the earth. And only Noaḥ was left, and those with him in the ark.
24And the waters were mighty on the earth, one hundred and fifty days.

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.
