Genesis 7:1-6 HNV

1 The LORD said to Noach, "Come with all of your household into the teivah, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation.
2 You shall take seven pairs of every clean animal with you, the male and his female. Of the animals that are not clean, take two, the male and his female.
3 Also of the birds of the sky, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the eretz.
4 In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the eretz for forty days and forty nights. Every living thing that I have made, I will destroy from the surface of the ground."
5 Noach did everything that the LORD commanded him.
6 Noach was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the eretz.
