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 Jehovah saith to Noah, ‘Come in, thou and all thy house, unto the ark, for thee I have seen righteous before Me in this generation;
2of all the clean beasts thou dost take to thee seven pairs, a male and its female; and of the beasts which are not clean two, a male and its female;
3also, of fowl of the heavens seven pairs, a male and a female, to keep alive seed on the face of all the earth;
4for after other seven days I am sending rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and have wiped away all the substance that I have made from off the face of the ground.’
5And Noah doth according to all that Jehovah hath commanded him:
6and Noah [is] a son of six hundred years, and the deluge of waters hath been upon the earth.
7And Noah goeth in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, unto the ark, from the presence of the waters of the deluge;
8of the clean beasts and of the beasts that [are] not clean, and of the fowl, and of every thing that is creeping upon the ground,
9two by two they have come in unto Noah, unto the ark, a male and a female, as God hath commanded Noah.
10And it cometh to pass, after the seventh of the days, that waters of the deluge have been on the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in this day have been broken up all fountains of the great deep, and the net-work of the heavens hath been opened,
12and the shower is on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13In this self-same day went in Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, unto the ark;
14they, and every living creature after its kind, and every beast after its kind, and every creeping thing that is creeping on the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird — every wing.
15And they come in unto Noah, unto the ark, two by two of all the flesh in which [is] a living spirit;
16and they that are coming in, male and female of all flesh, have come in as God hath commanded him, and Jehovah doth close [it] for him.
17And the deluge is forty days on the earth, and the waters multiply, and lift up the ark, and it is raised up from off the earth;
18and the waters are mighty, and multiply exceedingly upon the earth; and the ark goeth on the face of the waters.
19And the waters have been very very mighty on the earth, and covered are all the high mountains which [are] under the whole heavens;
20fifteen cubits upwards have the waters become mighty, and the mountains are covered;
21and expire doth all flesh that is moving on the earth, among fowl, and among cattle, and among beasts, and among all the teeming things which are teeming on the earth, and all mankind;
22all in whose nostrils [is] breath of a living spirit — of all that [is] in the dry land — have died.
23And wiped away is all the substance that is on the face of the ground, from man unto beast, unto creeping thing, and unto fowl of the heavens; yea, they are wiped away from the earth, and only Noah is left, and those who [are] with him in the ark;
24and the waters are mighty on the earth a hundred and fifty days.
