1 Then the LORD said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous R157 before Me in this time. F101 2 "You shall take with F102 you of every clean R158 animal by F103 sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female; 3 also of the birds of the sky, F104 by F105 sevens, male and female, to keep offspring F106 alive on the face of all the earth. 4 "For after seven R159 more days, I will send rain on the earth forty R160 days and forty nights; and I will blot out from the face of the land every R161 living thing that I have made." 5 Noah R162 did according to all that the LORD had commanded him.
6 Now Noah was six R163 hundred years old when the flood of water came F107 upon the earth. 7 Then Noah R164 and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood. 8 Of R165 clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that creeps on the ground, 9 there went into the ark to Noah by F108 twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 It came about after the R166 seven days, that the water of the flood came F109 upon the earth. 11 In the six R167 hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the R168 fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates F110 of the sky were opened. 12 The R169 rain fell F111 upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13 On the very same day Noah R170 and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark, 14 they and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their F112 kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, all F113 sorts of birds. 15 So they went into the ark to Noah, by R171 twos of all flesh in which was the breath of life. 16 Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the LORD closed it behind him.
17 Then the flood came F114 upon the earth for forty R172 days, and the water increased and lifted up the ark, so that it rose above the earth. 18 The water prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth, and the ark floated F115 on the surface F116 of the water. 19 The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere F117 under the heavens were covered. 20 The water prevailed fifteen cubits F118 higher, and R173 the mountains were covered. 21 All R174 flesh that moved F119 on the earth perished, birds and cattle and beasts and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth, and all mankind; 22 of all that was on the dry land, all in R175 whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died. 23 Thus He blotted out every F120 living thing that was upon the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky, F121 and they were blotted out from the earth; and only Noah R176 was left, together with those that were with him in the ark. 24 The R177 water prevailed upon the earth one hundred and fifty days.
