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.

1Then the Lord said to Noah, #Matt. 24:38, 39; Luke 17:26, 27; Heb. 11:7; 1 Pet. 3:20; 2 Pet. 2:5 “Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that #ch. 6:9you are righteous before me in this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs of all #ch. 8:20; [Lev. 11]clean animals,#7:2 Or seven of each kind of clean animal the male and his mate, and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and his mate, 3and seven pairs#7:3 Or seven of each kind of the birds of the heavens also, male and female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth. 4For in seven days #ver. 12, 17; [Job 37:11-13] I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, #ch. 6:17and every living thing#7:4 Hebrew all existence; also verse 23 that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground.” 5#ch. 6:22And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him.
6Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came upon the earth. 7And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground, 9two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah. 10And after seven days the waters of the flood came upon the earth.
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 #ch. 8:2; Prov. 8:28; [Amos 9:6] fountains of the great deep burst forth, and #ch. 8:2; 2 Kgs. 7:19; Isa. 24:18; Mal. 3:10; [Ps. 78:23]the windows of the heavens were opened. 12And rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem and Ham and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them entered the ark, 14they and every beast, according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kinds, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, according to its kind, and every bird, according to its kind, every winged creature. 15They #ch. 6:20went into the ark with Noah, two and two of all flesh in which there was the breath of life. 16And those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in #ver. 2, 3as God had commanded him. And the Lord shut him in.
17The flood #ver. 4, 12continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18The waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered. 20The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits#7:20 A cubit was about 18 inches or 45 centimeters deep. 21And #ver. 4; ch. 6:13, 17; 2 Pet. 3:6all flesh died that moved on the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22Everything on the dry land #ch. 2:7in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only #2 Pet. 2:5Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.
