Noah was six hundred years old1 when the floodwaters came on the earth.
And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark2 to escape the waters of the flood.
Pairs of clean and unclean3 animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground,
male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.410
And after the seven days5 the floodwaters came on the earth.
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life,6 on the seventeenth day of the second month7--on that day all the springs of the great deep8 burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens9 were opened.
And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.1013
On that very day Noah and his sons,11 Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.1214
They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind,13 everything with wings.
Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.1416
The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah.15 Then the LORD shut him in.
