And the LORDsaid unto Noah,Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seenrighteous before me in thisgeneration.2
Of every cleanbeast thou shalt take to thee by sevens ,a the male and his female: and of beasts that are not cleanbytwo, the male and his female.3
Of fowls also of the air by sevens ,b the male and the female; to keepseedalive upon the face of all the earth.4
For yetsevendays, and I will cause it to rain upon the earthfortydays and fortynights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroyc from off the face of the earth.5
And Noahdid according unto all that the LORDcommanded him.
And Noah was sixhundredyearsold when the flood of waters was upon the earth.7
And 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.8
Of cleanbeasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,9
There went intwo and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female,asGod had commandedNoah.10
And it came to pass after sevendays, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.11In the sixhundredthyear of Noah'slife, in the secondmonth, the seventeenthday of the month, the sameday were all the fountains of the greatdeep broken up , and the windowsd of heaven were opened .
And the rain was upon the earthfortydays and fortynights.13
In the selfsamedayenteredNoah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah'swife, and the threewives of his sons with them, into the ark;14They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.e15
And they went in unto Noah into the ark,two and two of all flesh,wherein is the breath of life.16
And they that went in , went inmale and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in .
And the flood was fortydays upon the earth; and the watersincreased , and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.18
And the watersprevailed , and were increasedgreatly upon the earth; and the arkwent upon the face of the waters.19
And the watersprevailedexceedinglyupon the earth; and all the highhills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered .
20Fifteencubitsupward did the watersprevail ; and the mountains were covered .
And all fleshdied that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:22
All in whose nostrils was the breathfoflife, of all that was in the dry land, died .
And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noahonlyremained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.24
And the watersprevailed upon the earth an hundred and fiftydays.
