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.

The Great Flood
1Then the #Matt. 11:28Lord said to Noah, #Matt. 24:38; Luke 17:26; Heb. 11:7; 1 Pet. 3:20; 2 Pet. 2:5“Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that #Gen. 6:9; Ps. 33:18; Prov. 10:9; 2 Pet. 2:9you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2You shall take with you seven each of every #Lev. 11; Deut. 14:3–20clean animal, a male and his female; #Lev. 10:10; Ezek. 44:23two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4For after #Gen. 7:10; Ex. 7:25seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth #Gen. 7:12, 17forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5#Gen. 6:22And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him. 6Noah was #Gen. 5:4, 32six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.
7#Gen. 6:18; 7:1, 13; Matt. 24:38; Luke 17:27So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth, 9two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God 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, the seventeenth day of the month, on #Matt. 24:39; Luke 17:27; 2 Pet. 2:5; 3:6that day all #Gen. 8:2; Prov. 8:28; Is. 51:10; Ezek. 26:19the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the #Gen. 8:2; Ps. 78:23windows of heaven were opened. 12#Gen. 7:4, 17; 1 Sam. 12:18And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark— 14#Gen. 6:19they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every #Gen. 1:21sort. 15And they #Gen. 6:19, 20; 7:9went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in #Gen. 7:2, 3as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.
17#Gen. 7:4, 12; 8:6Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, #Ps. 104:26and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. 20The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21#Gen. 6:7, 13, 17; 7:4And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 22All in #Gen. 2:7whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only #Matt. 24:38, 39; Luke 17:26, 27; Heb. 11:7; 1 Pet. 3:20; 2 Pet. 2:5Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. 24#Gen. 8:3, 4And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.
