In the 1sixhundredthyear of Noah'slife, in the secondmonth, on the seventeenthday of the month, on the samedayall2the fountains of the greatdeepburstopen, and the afloodgates of the sky were opened.
123The rainbfell upon the earth for fortydays and fortynights.
On the verysameday4Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah'swife and the threewives of his sons with them, entered the ark,
they and everybeast after its kind, and all the cattle after ctheir kind, and everycreepingthing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and everybird after its kind, dallsorts of birds.
So they went into the ark to Noah, 5by twos of allflesh in which was the breath of life.
Those that entered, male and female of allflesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the LORDclosed it behind him.
Then the floodecame upon the earth for 6fortydays, and the waterincreased and lifted up the ark, so that it roseabove the earth.
The waterprevailed and increasedgreatly upon the earth, and the arkffloated on the gsurface of the water.
The waterprevailedmore and more upon the earth, so that all the highmountainsheverywhereunder the heavens were covered.
The waterprevailedfifteenicubitshigher, 7and the mountains were covered.
218Allflesh that jmoved on the earthperished, birds and cattle and beasts and everyswarmingthing that swarms upon the earth, and allmankind ;
of all that was on the dryland, all9in whosenostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died.
Thus He blotted out keverylivingthing that was upon the face of the land, from man to animals to creepingthings and to birds of the lsky, and they were blotted out from the earth ; and only10Noah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark.
