Genesis 7

7
1And Jehovah said to Noah, Go into the ark, thou and all thy house; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. 2Of all clean beasts thou shalt take to thee by sevens, a male and its female; but of the beasts that are not clean two, a male and its female. 3Also of the fowl of the heavens by sevens, male and female; to keep seed alive on the face of all the earth. 4For in yet seven days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living being which I have made will I destroy from the ground.
5And Noah did according to all that Jehovah had commanded him. 6And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was on the earth. 7And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. 8Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowl, and of everything that creeps on the ground, 9there came two and two unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God#GodHebrew: Elohim had commanded Noah. 10And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that same day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the pour of rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13On the same day went Noah, and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 14they, and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and all fowl after its kind — every bird of every wing. 15And they went to Noah, into the ark, two and two of all flesh, in which was the breath of life. 16And they that came, came male and female of all flesh, as God#GodHebrew: Elohim had commanded him. And Jehovah shut him in.
17And the flood was forty days on the earth. And the waters increased, and bore up the ark; and it was lifted up above the earth. 18And the waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth; and the ark went on the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth; and all the high mountains that are under all the heavens were covered. 20Fifteen cubits upward the waters prevailed; and the mountains were covered.
21And all flesh that moved on the earth expired, fowl as well as cattle, and beasts, and all crawling things which crawl on the earth, and all mankind: 22everything which had in its nostrils the breath of life, of all that was on the dry land, died. 23And every living being was destroyed that was on the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping things, and fowl of the heavens; and they were destroyed from the earth. And Noah alone remained, and what was with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed on the earth a hundred and fifty days.

1 Then#Or “And” Yahweh said to Noah, “Go—you and all your household—into the ark, for I have seen you are righteous before me in this generation. 2From all the clean animals you must take for yourself seven pairs,#Literally “seven, seven” a male and its mate. And from the animals that are not clean you must take two, a male and its mate, 3as well as from the birds of heaven#Or “the sky” seven pairs,#Literally “seven, seven” male and female, to keep their kind alive#Literally “to keep seed alive” on the face of the earth. 4For within seven days#Literally “to seven days still” I will send rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. And I will blot out all the living creatures that I have made from upon the face of the ground.” 5And Noah did according to all that Yahweh commanded him.
The Flood
6Noah was six hundred years old#Literally “was a son of six hundred years” when#Or “and” the flood waters came upon the earth. 7And Noah and his sons and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8Of clean animals, and of animals which are not clean, and of the birds, and everything that creeps upon the ground, 9two of each#Literally “two, two” went to Noah, into the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10And it happened that after seven days the waters of the flood came over the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month—on that day all the springs of the great deep were split open, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the rain came upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On this same day, Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and the wife of Noah and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark, 14they and all the living creatures according to their#Or “its” kind, and all the domesticated animals according to their#Or “its” kind, and all the creatures that creep upon the earth according to their#Or “its” kind, all the birds according to their#Or “its” kind, every winged creature. 15And they came to Noah to the ark, two of each,#Literally “two, two” from every living thing in which was the breath of life. 16And those that came, male and female, of every living thing, came as God had commanded him. And Yahweh shut the door behind him. 17And the flood came forty days and forty nights upon the earth. And the waters increased, and lifted the ark, and it rose up from the earth. 18And the waters prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth. And the ark went upon the surface#Hebrew “face” of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed overwhelmingly#Literally “very very” upon the earth, and they covered all the high mountains which were under the entire heaven.#Or “the sky” 20The waters swelled fifteen cubits above the mountains, covering them.#Literally “Fifteen cubits above the waters swelled, and they covered the mountains” 21And every living thing that moved on the earth perished—the birds, and the domesticated animals, and the wild animals, and everything that swarmed on the earth, and all humankind. 22Everything in whose nostrils was the breath of life,#Literally “a breath of spirit of life” among all that was on dry land, died. 23And he#In context, God blotted out every living thing upon the surface of the ground, from humankind, to animals, to creeping things, and to the birds of heaven;#Or “the sky” they were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained. 24And the waters prevailed over the earth one hundred and fifty days.
