The LORD said to Noach, "Come with all of your household into the teivah, for I have seen your righteousness before me in this generation.
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.
Also of the birds of the sky, seven and seven, male and female, to keep seed alive on the surface of all the eretz.
In seven days, I will cause it to rain on the eretz for forty days and forty nights. Every living thing that I have made, I will destroy from the surface of the ground."
Noach did everything that the LORD commanded him.
Noach was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the eretz.
Noach went into the teivah with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, because of the waters of the flood.
Clean animals, animals that are not clean, birds, and everything that creeps on the ground
went by pairs to Noach into the teivah, male and female, as God commanded Noach.
It happened after the seven days, that the waters of the flood came on the eretz.
In the six hundredth year of Noach'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.
The rain was on the eretz forty days and forty nights.
In the same day Noach, and Shem, Ham, and Yefet, the sons of Noach, and Noach's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the teivah;
they, and every animal after its kind, all the cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the eretz after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort.
They went to Noach into the teivah, by pairs of all flesh with the breath of life in them.
Those who went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.
The flood was forty days on the eretz. The waters increased, and lifted up the teivah, and it was lifted up above the eretz.
The waters prevailed, and increased greatly on the eretz; and the teivah floated on the surface of the waters.
The waters prevailed exceedingly on the eretz. All the high mountains that were under the whole sky were covered.
The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.
All flesh died that moved on the eretz, including birds, cattle, animals, every creeping thing that creeps on the eretz, and every man.
All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, of all that was on the dry land, died.
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 eretz. Only Noach was left, and those who were with him in the teivah.
The waters prevailed on the eretz one hundred fifty days.
