Genesis 7

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.

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.
