Genesis 71And the Lord God said to Noah, Enter therefore, you and all your family, into the ark, for I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, male and female, and of the unclean animals take two each, male and female. 3And also seven each of the clean flying creatures of the sky, male and female, and also pairs of all unclean flying creatures, male and female, to maintain seed on all the earth. 4For yet seven days having passed I shall bring rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights, and I shall blot out every offspring which I have made from the face of all the earth. 5And Noah did all things, whatever the Lord God commanded him. 6And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of water came upon the earth. 7And then Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, went into the ark, because of the water of the flood. 8And of clean flying creatures and of unclean flying creatures, and of clean cattle and of unclean cattle, and of all things that creep upon the earth, 9pairs went in to Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10And it came to pass after the seven days that the water of the flood came upon the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of the life of Noah, in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on this day all the fountains of the abyss were broken up, and the flood gates of heaven were opened. 12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13On that very day entered Noah, Shem, Ham, Japheth, the sons of Noah, and the wife of Noah, and the three wives of his sons with him into the ark. 14And all the wild beasts after their kind, and all cattle after their kind, and every reptile moving itself on the earth after its kind, and every flying bird after its kind, 15went in to Noah into the ark, pairs, male and female of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16And they that entered went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded Noah, and the Lord God shut the ark outside of him. 17And the flood was upon the earth forty days and forty nights, and the water abounded greatly and bore up the ark, and it was lifted on high from off the earth. 18And the water prevailed and abounded exceedingly upon the earth, and the ark was borne upon the water. 19And the water prevailed exceedingly upon the earth, and covered all the high mountains which were under heaven. 20Fifteen cubits upwards was the water raised, and it covered all the high mountains. 21And all flesh that moved upon the earth died; of flying creatures and cattle, and of wild beasts, and every reptile moving upon the earth, and every man. 22And all things which have the breath of life, and whatever was on the dry land, died. 23And God blotted out every offspring which was upon the face of the earth, both man and beast, and reptiles, and birds of the sky, and they were blotted out from the earth, and Noah was left alone, and those with him in the ark. 24And the water was raised over the earth one hundred and fifty days.
