1Yahweh said to Noah, 'Go aboard the ark, you and all your household, for you alone of yourcontemporaries do I see before me as an upright man. 2Of every clean animal you must take seven pairs, a male and its female; of the unclean animals youmust take one pair, a male and its female 3(and of the birds of heaven, seven pairs, a male and its female), to preserve their species throughoutthe earth. 4For in seven days' time I shal make it rain on earth for forty days and forty nights, and I shall wipeevery creature I have made off the face of the earth.' 5Noah did exactly as Yahweh commanded him. 6Noah was six hundred years old when the flood came, the waters over the earth. 7Noah with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives boarded the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8(Of the clean animals and the animals that are not clean, of the birds and all that creeps along theground, 9one pair boarded the ark with Noah, one male and one female, as God had commanded Noah.) 10Seven days later the waters of the flood appeared on earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, and on the seventeenth day of themonth, that very day al the springs of the great deep burst through, and the sluices of heaven opened. 12And heavy rain fel on earth for forty days and forty nights. 13That very day Noah and his sons Shem, Ham and Japheth boarded the ark, with Noah's wife and thethree wives of his sons, 14and with them every species of wild animal, every species of cattle, every species of creeping thingsthat creep along the ground, every species of bird, everything that flies, everything with wings. 15One pair of al that was alive and had the breath of life boarded the ark with Noah, 16and those that went aboard were a male and female of all that was alive, as God had commandedhim. Then Yahweh shut him in. 17The flood lasted forty days on earth. The waters swelled, lifting the ark until it floated off the ground. 18The waters rose, swel ing higher above the ground, and the ark drifted away over the waters. 19The waters rose higher and higher above the ground until al the highest mountains under the wholeof heaven were submerged. 20The waters reached their peak fifteen cubits above the submerged mountains. 21And al living things that stirred on earth perished; birds, cattle, wild animals, all the creaturesswarming over the earth, and all human beings. 22Everything with the least breath of life in its nostrils, everything on dry land, died. 23Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out, people, animals, creeping things and birds;they were wiped off the earth and only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. 24The waters maintained their level on earth for a hundred and fifty days.
