1And the Lord said to Noah, Take all your family and go into the ark, for you only in this generation have I seen to be upright.
2Of every clean beast you will take seven males and seven females, and of the beasts which are not clean, two, the male and his female;
3And of the birds of the air, seven males and seven females, so that their seed may still be living on the face of the earth.
4For after seven days I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, for the destruction of every living thing which I have made on the face of the earth.
5And Noah did everything which the Lord said he was to do.
6And Noah was six hundred years old when the waters came flowing over all the earth.
7And Noah, with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives, went into the ark because of the flowing of the waters.
8Of clean beasts, and of beasts which are not clean, and of birds, and of everything which goes on the earth,
9In twos, male and female, they went into the ark with Noah, as God had said.
10And after the seven days, the waters came over all the earth.
11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, all the fountains of the great deep came bursting through, and the windows of heaven were open;
12And rain came down on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
13On the same day Noah, with Shem, Ham, and Japheth, his sons, and his wife and his sons' wives, went into the ark;
14And with them, every sort of beast and cattle, and every sort of thing which goes on the earth, and every sort of bird.
15They went with Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh in which is the breath of life.
16Male and female of all flesh went in, as God had said, and the ark was shut by the Lord.
17And for forty days the waters were over all the earth; and the waters were increased so that the ark was lifted up high over the earth.
18And the waters overcame everything and were increased greatly on the earth, and the ark was resting on the face of the waters.
19And the waters overcame everything on the earth; and all the mountains under heaven were covered.
20The waters went fifteen cubits higher, till all the mountains were covered.
21And destruction came on every living thing moving on the earth, birds and cattle and beasts and everything which went on the earth, and every man.
22Everything on the dry land, in which was the breath of life, came to its end.
23Every living thing on the face of all the earth, man and cattle and things moving on the face of the earth, and birds of the air, came to destruction: only Noah and those who were with him in the ark, were kept from death.
24And the waters were over the earth a hundred and fifty days.
