Genesis 7

1And Jehovah said to Noah, Come, thou and all thy house into the ark, for I have seen thee righteous before me in this generation. 2Of every clean beast thou shall take to thee by sevens, the male and his female. And of the beasts that are not clean two, the male and his female. 3Also of the birds of the heavens by sevens, male and 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 thing that I have made I will destroy from off the face of the ground. 5And Noah did according to all that Jehovah commanded him. 6And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7And Noah 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 birds, and of everything that creeps upon the ground, 9there went in two by two to Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep were 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 Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the ark, 14they, and every beast according to its kind, and all the cattle according to their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, every bird of every sort. 15And they went in to Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16And those that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him. And Jehovah shut him in. 17And the flood was forty days upon the earth. And the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth. 18And the waters prevailed, and 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 mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered, 20fifteen cubits upward. The waters prevailed, and the mountains were covered. 21And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, from birds, to cattle, to beasts, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth, and every man. 22All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, of all that was on the dry land, died. 23And every living thing was destroyed that was upon the face of the ground, from man, to cattle, to creeping things, and birds of the heavens, and they were destroyed from the earth. And only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
