Genesis 7

7
1 Then#Or “And” Yahweh said to Noah, “Go—you and all your household—into the ark, for I have seen you are righteous before me in this generation. 2From all the clean animals you must take for yourself seven pairs,#Literally “seven, seven” a male and its mate. And from the animals that are not clean you must take two, a male and its mate, 3as well as from the birds of heaven#Or “the sky” seven pairs,#Literally “seven, seven” male and female, to keep their kind alive#Literally “to keep seed alive” on the face of the earth. 4For within seven days#Literally “to seven days still” I will send rain upon the earth for forty days and forty nights. And I will blot out all the living creatures that I have made from upon the face of the ground.” 5And Noah did according to all that Yahweh commanded him.
The Flood
6Noah was six hundred years old#Literally “was a son of six hundred years” when#Or “and” the flood waters came upon the earth. 7And Noah and his sons and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8Of clean animals, and of animals which are not clean, and of the birds, and everything that creeps upon the ground, 9two of each#Literally “two, two” went to Noah, into the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10And it happened that after seven days the waters of the flood came over the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month—on that day all the springs of the great deep were split open, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the rain came upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On this same day, Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and the wife of Noah and the three wives of his sons with them, went into the ark, 14they and all the living creatures according to their#Or “its” kind, and all the domesticated animals according to their#Or “its” kind, and all the creatures that creep upon the earth according to their#Or “its” kind, all the birds according to their#Or “its” kind, every winged creature. 15And they came to Noah to the ark, two of each,#Literally “two, two” from every living thing in which was the breath of life. 16And those that came, male and female, of every living thing, came as God had commanded him. And Yahweh shut the door behind him. 17And the flood came forty days and forty nights upon the earth. And the waters increased, and lifted the ark, and it rose up from the earth. 18And the waters prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth. And the ark went upon the surface#Hebrew “face” of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed overwhelmingly#Literally “very very” upon the earth, and they covered all the high mountains which were under the entire heaven.#Or “the sky” 20The waters swelled fifteen cubits above the mountains, covering them.#Literally “Fifteen cubits above the waters swelled, and they covered the mountains” 21And every living thing that moved on the earth perished—the birds, and the domesticated animals, and the wild animals, and everything that swarmed on the earth, and all humankind. 22Everything in whose nostrils was the breath of life,#Literally “a breath of spirit of life” among all that was on dry land, died. 23And he#In context, God blotted out every living thing upon the surface of the ground, from humankind, to animals, to creeping things, and to the birds of heaven;#Or “the sky” they were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained. 24And the waters prevailed over the earth one hundred and fifty days.

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.
