Genesis 7

Entering the Ark

(1) And the LORD said to Noah, "You and all your house come into the ark, for I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation.

(2) You shall take seven of every clean animal, a male and his female, and the animals that are not clean you shall take two, a male and his female.

(3) For the birds of the air you shall also take by sevens, a male and a female, to keep their offspring alive on the face of all the earth.

(4) In seven days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy every living thing that I have made from off the face of the earth.

(5) And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him to do.

The Flood Begins

(6) Noah was 600 years old when the floodwaters came upon the earth.

(7) Noah, along with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, went into the ark because of the floodwaters.

(8) Of clean animals, and of animals that are not clean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth,

(9) they went to Noah two by two into the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.

(10) And it came to pass after seven days that the floodwaters were upon the earth.

(11) In the 600th year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the 17th day of the month, on that same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the windows of heaven were opened.

Rained 40 Days And 40 Nights

(12) And it rained on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights.

(13) On the very same day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons, entered into the ark.

(14) They, and every wild animal after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort.

(15) And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two of all flesh, in which there was the breath of life.

(16) They all went in, male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him. Then the LORD shut him in.

(17) The flood was on the earth 40 days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark above the earth.

Mountains Covered With Water

(18) And the waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth. The ark was carried on the surface of the waters.

(19) The waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, so that all the high hills that were under all of heaven were covered.

(20) The waters prevailed 15 cubits upward, and the mountains were covered.

All Flesh Died In The Flood

(21) All flesh died on the earth, including birds, cattle, beasts, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man.

(22) All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, and all that was on the dry land, died.

(23) And every living thing which was on the face of the ground was destroyed, including man, cattle, creeping things, and birds of the air. They were all destroyed from the earth. Only Noah, and they that were with him in the ark remained alive.

(24) The waters prevailed on the earth for 150 days.
