The Flood
1The Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ship with your whole family because I have seen that you alone are righteous among the people of today. 2Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal (a male and a female of each) and one pair of every kind of unclean  #7:2 Clean” refers to anything that is presentable to God. “Unclean” refers to anything that is not presentable to God. animal (a male and a female). 3Also, take seven pairs of every kind of bird (a male and a female of each) to preserve animal life all over the earth after the flood. 4In seven days I will send rain to the earth for 40 days and 40 nights. I will wipe off the face of the earth every living creature that I have made.”
5So Noah did everything that the Lord commanded him.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came to the earth. 7Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives went into the ship to escape the floodwaters. 8Clean and unclean animals, birds, and creatures that crawl on the ground 9came to Noah to go into the ship in pairs (a male and female of each) as God had commanded Noah.
10Seven days later the flood came on the earth. 11On the seventeenth day of the second month of the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, all the deep springs burst open. The sky opened, 12and rain came pouring down on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.
13On that same day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, as well as Noah’s wife and his three daughters-in-law went into the ship. 14They had with them every type of wild animal, every type of domestic animal, every type of creature that crawls on the earth, and every type of bird (every creature with wings). 15A pair of every living, breathing animal came to Noah to go into the ship. 16A male and a female of every animal went in as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord closed the door behind them.
17The flood continued for 40 days on the earth. The water increased and lifted the ship so that it rose high above the ground. 18As the water rose and became very deep, the ship floated on top of the water. 19The water rose very high above the earth. It covered all the high mountains everywhere under the sky. 20It rose 23 feet above the mountaintops.
21Every creature that crawls on the earth died, including birds, domestic and wild animals, and everything that swarms over the earth, along with every human. 22Everything on dry land (every living, breathing creature) died. 23Every living creature on the face of the earth was wiped out. Humans, domestic animals, crawling creatures, and birds were wiped off the earth. Only Noah and those with him in the ship were left.
24The floodwaters were on the earth for 150 days.

Genesis 7

7
1And the Lord said to him: Go in thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee I have seen just before me in this generation.
2Of all clean beasts take seven and seven, the male and female.
3But of the beasts that are unclean two and two, the male and female. Of the fowls also of the air seven and seven, the male and the female: that seed may be saved upon the face of the whole earth.
4For yet a while, and after seven days, I will rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will destroy every substance that I have made, from the face of the earth.
5And Noe did all things which the Lord had commanded him.
6And he was six hundred years old, when the waters of the flood overflowed the earth.
7And Noe went in, and his sons, his wife and the wives of his sons with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
8And of the beasts clean and unclean, and of fowls, and of every thing that moveth upon the earth,
9Two and two went in to Noe into the ark, male and female: as the Lord had commanded Noe.
10And after seven days were passed, the waters of the flood overflowed the earth.
11In the six hundreth year of the life of Noe, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the flood gates of heaven were opened:
12And the rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the selfsame day, Noe, and Sem, and Cham, and Japheth his sons: his wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark:
14They and every beast according to its kind, and all the cattle in their kind, and every thing that moveth upon the earth according to its kind, and every fowl according to its kind, and every fowl according to its kind, all birds, and all that fly,
15Went in to Noe into the ark, two and two, of all flesh wherein was the breath of life.
16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in on the outside.
17And the flood was forty days upon the earth, and the waters increased, and lifted up the ark on high from earth.
18For they overflowed exceedingly: and filled all on the face of the earth: and the ark was carried upon the waters.
19And the waters prevailed beyond measure upon the earth: and all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered.
20The water was fifteen cubits higher than the mountains which it covered.
21And all flesh was destroyed that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beasts, and of all creeping things that creep upon the earth: and all men.
22And all things wherein there is the breath of life on the earth, died.
23And he destroyed all the substance that was upon the earth, from man to beast, and the creeping things and fowls of the air: and they were destroyed from the earth. And Noe only remained, and they that were with him in the ark.
24And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
