1 ADONAI said to Noach, "Come into the ark, you and all your household; for I have seen that you alone in this generation are righteous before me. 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 Of every clean animal you are to take seven couples, and of the animals that are not clean, one couple; 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 in the air take seven couples - in order to preserve their species throughout the earth. 3 and also seven of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.
4 For in seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; I will wipe out every living thing that I have made from the face of the earth." 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 Noach did all that ADONAI ordered him to do. 5 And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him.
6 Noach was 600 years old when the water flooded the earth. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth.
7 Noach went into the ark with his sons, his wife and his sons' wives, because of the floodwaters. 7 And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean animals, of animals that are not clean, of birds, and of 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 couples, male and female, went in to Noach in the ark, as God had ordered Noach. 9 male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.
10 After seven days the water flooded the earth. 10 And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
11 On the seventeenth day of the second month of the 600th year of Noach's life all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows 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 It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
13 On that same day Noach entered the ark with Shem, Ham and Yefet the sons of Noach, Noach's wife and the three wives of his sons accompanying them; 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 of every species, all the livestock of every species, every animal that creeps on the ground of every species, and every bird of every species - all sorts of winged creatures. 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 in to Noach in the ark, couples from every kind of living thing that breathes. 15 Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.
16 Those that entered went in, male and female, from every kind of living being, as God had ordered him; and ADONAI shut him inside. 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 water grew higher and floated the ark, so that it was lifted up off 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 water overflowed the earth and grew deeper, until 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 The water overpowered the earth mightily; all the high mountains under the entire sky were covered; 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered.
20 the water covered the mountains by more than twenty-two-and-a-half feet. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet.
21 All living beings that moved on the earth perished - birds, livestock, other animals, insects, and every human being, 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 in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life; whatever was 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 on the surface of the ground - not only human beings, but livestock, creeping animals and birds in the air. They were wiped out from the earth; only Noach was left, along with 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 water held power over the earth for 150 days. 24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
