The Flood Covers the Earth

7When everything was ready, the LORD said to Noah, "Go into the boat with all your family, for among all the people of the earth, I can see that you alone are righteous.H3068H559H5146H935H1004H8392H7200H6662H6440H2088H1755 2Take with you seven pairs—male and female—of each animal I have approved for eating and for sacrifice, and take one pair of each of the others.H2889H929H3947H7651H7651H376H802H929H2889H1931H8147H376H802 3Also take seven pairs of every kind of bird. There must be a male and a female in each pair to ensure that all life will survive on the earth after the flood.H5775H8064H7651H7651H2145H5347H2421H2233H2421H6440H776 4Seven days from now I will make the rains pour down on the earth. And it will rain for forty days and forty nights, until I have wiped from the earth all the living things I have created."H5750H7651H3117H4305H776H705H3117H705H3915H3605H3351H6213H4229H5921H6440H127 5So Noah did everything as the LORD commanded him.H5146H6213H3068H6680 6Noah was 600 years old when the flood covered the earth.H5146H8337H3967H8141H1121H3999H4325H776 7He went on board the boat to escape the flood—he and his wife and his sons and their wives.H5146H935H1121H802H1121H802H8392H6440H4325H3999 8With them were all the various kinds of animals—those approved for eating and for sacrifice and those that were not—along with all the birds and the small animals that scurry along the ground.H2889H929H929H2889H5775H7430H127 9They entered the boat in pairs, male and female, just as God had commanded Noah.H935H8147H8147H5146H8392H2145H5347H834H430H6680H5146 10After seven days, the waters of the flood came and covered the earth.H7651H3117H4325H3999H776 11When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the underground waters erupted from the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky.H8141H8337H3967H8141H5146H2416H8145H2320H7651H6240H3117H2320H2088H3117H4599H7227H8415H1234H699H8064H6605 12The rain continued to fall for forty days and forty nights.H1653H776H705H3117H705H3915 13That very day Noah had gone into the boat with his wife and his sons—Shem, Ham, and Japheth—and their wives.H6106H3117H935H5146H8035H2526H3315H1121H5146H5146H802H7969H802H1121H8392 14With them in the boat were pairs of every kind of animal—domestic and wild, large and small—along with birds of every kind.H1992H2416H4327H929H4327H7431H7430H776H4327H5775H4327H6833H3671 15Two by two they came into the boat, representing every living thing that breathes.H935H5146H8392H8147H8147H1320H834H7307H2416 16A male and female of each kind entered, just as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD closed the door behind them.H935H935H2145H5347H1320H430H6680H3068H5462 17For forty days the floodwaters grew deeper, covering the ground and lifting the boat high above the earth.H3999H705H3117H776H4325H7235H5375H8392H7311H776 18As the waters rose higher and higher above the ground, the boat floated safely on the surface.H4325H1396H7235H3966H776H8392H3212H6440H4325 19Finally, the water covered even the highest mountains on the earth,H4325H1396H3966H3966H776H1364H2022H8478H8064H3680 20rising more than twenty-two feet above the highest peaks.H6240H2568H520H4605H4325H1396H2022H3680 21All the living things on earth died—birds, domestic animals, wild animals, small animals that scurry along the ground, and all the people.H1320H1478H7430H776H5775H929H2416H8318H8317H776H120 22Everything that breathed and lived on dry land died.H639H5397H7307H2416H2724H4191 23God wiped out every living thing on the earth—people, livestock, small animals that scurry along the ground, and the birds of the sky. All were destroyed. The only people who survived were Noah and those with him in the boat.H3351H4229H6440H127H120H929H7431H5775H8064H4229H776H5146H389H7604H834H8392 24And the floodwaters covered the earth for 150 days.H4325H1396H776H3967H2572H3117
