Genesis 7

7
1The LORD said to Noah, “Go into the ark with your whole household, because among this generation I’ve seen that you are a moral man. 2From every clean animal, take seven pairs, a male and his mate; and from every unclean animal, take one pair, a male and his mate; 3and from the birds in the sky as well, take seven pairs, male and female, so that their offspring will survive throughout the earth. 4In seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. I will wipe off from the fertile land every living thing that I have made.”
5Noah did everything the LORD commanded him.
6Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters arrived on earth. 7Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark to escape the floodwaters. 8From the clean and unclean animals, from the birds and everything crawling on the ground, 9two of each, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, just as God commanded Noah. 10After seven days, the floodwaters arrived on the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day—on that day all the springs of the deep sea erupted, and the windows in the skies opened. 12It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13That same day Noah, with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah’s wife, and his sons’ three wives, went into the ark. 14They and every kind of animal—every kind of livestock, every kind that crawls on the ground, every kind of bird#7.14 LXX; MT every bird, every winged thing15they came to Noah and entered the ark, two of every creature that breathes. 16Male and female of every creature went in, just as God had commanded him. Then the LORD closed the door behind them.#7.16 Heb lacks the door.
17The flood remained on the earth for forty days. The waters rose, lifted the ark, and it rode high above the earth. 18The waters rose and spread out over the earth. The ark floated on the surface of the waters. 19The waters rose even higher over the earth; they covered all of the highest mountains under the sky. 20The waters rose twenty-three feet high, covering the mountains. 21Every creature took its last breath: the things crawling on the ground, birds, livestock, wild animals, everything swarming on the ground, and every human being. 22Everything on dry land with life’s breath in its nostrils died. 23God wiped away every living thing that was on the fertile land—from human beings to livestock to crawling things to birds in the sky. They were wiped off the earth. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left. 24The waters rose over the earth for one hundred fifty days.

The Flood
1The LORD said to Noah, “Go into the boat with your whole family; I have found that you are the only one in all the world who does what is right. 2Take with you seven pairs of each kind of ritually clean animal, but only one pair of each kind of unclean animal. 3Take also seven pairs of each kind of bird. Do this so that every kind of animal and bird will be kept alive to reproduce again on the earth. 4Seven days from now I am going to send rain that will fall for forty days and nights, in order to destroy all the living beings that I have made.” 5And Noah did everything that the LORD commanded.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came on the earth. 7#Mt 24.38–39; Lk 17.27He and his wife, and his sons and their wives, went into the boat to escape the flood. 8A male and a female of every kind of animal and bird, whether ritually clean or unclean, 9went into the boat with Noah, as God had commanded. 10Seven days later the flood came.
11 # 2 Pet 3.6 When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month all the outlets of the vast body of water beneath the earth burst open, all the floodgates of the sky were opened, 12and rain fell on the earth for forty days and nights. 13On that same day Noah and his wife went into the boat with their three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and their wives. 14With them went every kind of animal, domestic and wild, large and small, and every kind of bird. 15A male and a female of each kind of living being went into the boat with Noah, 16as God had commanded. Then the LORD shut the door behind Noah.
17The flood continued for forty days, and the water became deep enough for the boat to float. 18The water became deeper, and the boat drifted on the surface. 19It became so deep that it covered the highest mountains; 20it went on rising until it was about seven metres above the tops of the mountains. 21Every living being on the earth died — every bird, every animal, and every person. 22Everything on earth that breathed died. 23The LORD destroyed all living beings on the earth — human beings, animals, and birds. The only ones left were Noah and those who were with him in the boat. 24The water did not start going down for 150 days.
