World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Yahweh said to Noah, "Come with all of your household into the ark, for I have seen your righteousness 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 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. 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 Also of the birds of the sky, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the earth. 3 and also seven of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.
4 In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. Every living thing that I have made, I will destroy from the surface of the ground." 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 Noah did everything that Yahweh commanded him. 5 And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him.
6 Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth.
7 Noah went into the ark with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, because of the waters of the flood. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
8 Clean animals, animals that are not clean, birds, and everything that creeps on the ground 8 Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground,
9 went by pairs to Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.
10 It happened after the seven days, that the waters of the flood 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 the same day all the fountains of the great deep were burst open, and the sky's windows 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 The rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 In the same day Noah, and Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the ark; 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, and every animal after its kind, all the cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 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 They went to Noah into the ark, by pairs of all flesh with the breath of life in them. 15 Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.
16 Those who went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and Yahweh 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 flood was forty days on the earth. The waters increased, and lifted up the ark, and it was lifted up 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 prevailed, and increased greatly on the earth; and the ark floated on the surface of the waters. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water.
19 The waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth. All the high mountains that were 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 waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet.
21 All flesh died that moved on the earth, including birds, cattle, animals, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man. 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 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, of all that was on the dry land, died. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died.
23 Every living thing was destroyed that was on the surface of the ground, including man, cattle, creeping things, and birds of the sky. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who 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 The waters prevailed on the earth one hundred fifty days. 24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
