3 and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive upon the face 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 For in seven days I will send rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face 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."
