Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the Lord said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you [alone] are righteous before Me in this generation. 1 The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.
2 You are to take with you seven pairs, a male and its female, of all the clean animals, and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and its female, 2 Take with you seven of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate,
3 and seven pairs, male and female, of the birds of the sky-in order to keep offspring alive on the face of the whole earth. 3 and also seven of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.
4 Seven days from now I will make it rain on the earth 40 days and 40 nights, and I will wipe off the face of the earth every living thing I have made." 4 Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made."
5 And Noah did everything that the Lord commanded him. 5 And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him.
6 Noah was 600 years old when the deluge came [and] water covered the earth. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth.
7 So Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives entered the ark because of the waters of the deluge. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
8 From the clean animals, unclean animals, birds, and every creature that crawls on the ground, 8 Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground,
9 two of each, male and female, entered the ark with Noah, just as God had commanded him. 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.
10 Seven days later the waters of the deluge came on the earth. 10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the watery depths burst open, the floodgates of the sky were opened, 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month--on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.
12 and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 On that same day Noah along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah's wife, and his three sons' wives entered the ark with him. 13 On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark.
14 They [entered it] with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that crawls on the earth according to its kind, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds. 14 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, everything with wings.
15 Two of all flesh that has the breath of life in it entered the ark with Noah. 15 Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.
16 Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the Lord shut him in. 16 The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in.
17 The deluge continued 40 days on the earth; the waters increased and lifted up the ark so that it rose above the earth. 17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth.
18 The waters surged and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.
19 Then the waters surged even higher on the earth, and all the high mountains under the whole sky were covered. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered.
20 The mountains were covered as the waters surged [above them] more than 20 feet. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet.
21 All flesh perished-creatures that crawl on the earth, birds, livestock, wildlife, and all creatures that swarm on the earth, as well as all mankind. 21 Every living thing that moved on the earth perished--birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind.
22 Everything with the breath of the spirit of life in its nostrils-everything on dry land died. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died.
23 He wiped out every living thing that was on the surface of the ground, from mankind to livestock, to creatures that crawl, to the birds of the sky, and they were wiped off the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in the ark. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
24 And the waters surged on the earth 150 days. 24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
