Genesis 7:9 Meaning and Commentary

Genesis 7:9

There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark
Of themselves, as Jarchi and Aben Ezra, being impressed with an instinct from God so to do; or by the ministry of angels, as observed (See Gill on Genesis 6:20) there were two of a sort, and some think four: the male and the female;
and of some seven, or seven pairs, as before observed: as God commanded Noah;
which respects his own and his family's entrance and the creatures; both were commanded by God, and attended to by Noah, who was obedient in all things.

Genesis 7:9 In-Context

7 And Noah with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
8 Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground,
9 two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah.
10 And after seven days the waters of the flood 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 fountains of the great deep burst forth, and the windows of the heavens were opened.
