Then the Lord said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and all your household, for I have seen that you alone are righteous before me in this generation.
Take with you seven pairs of all clean animals, the male and its mate; and a pair of the animals that are not clean, the male and its mate;
and seven pairs of the birds of the air also, male and female, to keep their kind alive on the face of all the earth.
For in seven days I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights; and every living thing that I have made I will blot out from the face of the ground."
And Noah did all that the Lord had commanded him.
Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came on the earth.
And Noah with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives went into the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, and of birds, and of everything that creeps on the ground,
two and two, male and female, went into the ark with Noah, as God had commanded Noah.
