Genesis 7

Entering the Ark
1Then the Lord said to Noah, “Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before Me in this generation. # Mt 24:38-39; Lk 17:26-27; Heb 11:7 2You are to take with you seven pairs, a male and its female, of all the clean animals, # Gn 8:20; Lv 11:1-31; Dt 14:3-20 and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and its female, 3and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky — in order to keep offspring alive on the face of the whole earth. 4Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe off from the face of the earth every living thing I have made.” 5And Noah did everything that the Lord commanded him. # Gn 6:22
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood came and water covered the earth. 7So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives entered the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8From the clean animals, unclean animals, birds, and every creature that crawls on the ground, 9two of each, male and female, entered the ark with Noah, just as God had commanded him. 10Seven days later the waters of the flood came on the earth.
The Flood
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 sources of the watery depths burst open, # Gn 8:2; Pr 8:28; Am 9:6 the floodgates of the sky were opened, # 2Kg 7:19; Ps 78:23; Is 24:18; Mal 3:10 12and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights. 13On that same day Noah along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah’s wife, and his three sons’ wives entered the ark with him. 14They entered it with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, the creatures that crawl on the earth according to their kinds, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds. 15Two of all flesh that has the breath of life in it entered the ark with Noah. 16Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in.
17The flood continued for 40 days on the earth; the waters increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth. 18The waters surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19Then the waters surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered. 20The mountains were covered as the waters surged above them more than 20 feet. # Lit surged 15 cubits 21Every creature perished — those that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and those that swarm # Lit all the swarming swarms on the earth, as well as all mankind. 22Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils # Gn 2:7 — everything on dry land died. 23He wiped out every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark. # 1Pt 3:20; 2Pt 2:5 24And the waters surged on the earth 150 days.

Genesis 7

1And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said unto Noach (Rest, Consolation), Come youi and all youri house into the ark; for youi have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
2Of every clean beast youi shall take to youi by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that [are] not clean by two, the male and his female.
3Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
4For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.
5And Noach (Rest, Consolation) did according unto all that the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) commanded him.
6And Noach (Rest, Consolation) [was] six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.
7And Noach (Rest, Consolation) 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 fowls, and of everything that creeps upon the earth,
9There went in two and two unto Noach (Rest, Consolation) into the ark, the male and the female, as God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had commanded Noach (Rest, Consolation).
10And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noach’s (Rest, Consolation) life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In the selfsame day entered Noach (Rest, Consolation), and Shem (name, renown (great reputation; being well-known)), and Ham (hot, heat, brown), and Yefet (enlarged; fair; persuading), the sons of Noach (Rest, Consolation), and Noach’s (Rest, Consolation) wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
14They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
15And they went in unto Noach (Rest, Consolation) into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life.
16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] had commanded him: and the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) shut him in.
17And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.
18And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
19And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that [were] under the whole heaven, were covered.
20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
21And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth, and every man:
22All in whose nostrils [was] the breath of life, of all that [was] in the dry [land], died.
23And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noach (Rest, Consolation) only remained [alive], and they that [were] with him in the ark.
24And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
