10 Noah 1became the father of three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for aall flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
13 Then God said to Noah, “aThe end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth.
14 “Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; you shall make the ark with rooms, and shall 1cover it inside and out with pitch.
17 “Behold, aI, even I am bringing the flood of water upon the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life, from under heaven; everything that is on the earth shall perish.
19 “aAnd of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.
20 “aOf the birds after their kind, and of the animals after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.
21 “As for you, take for yourself some of all afood which is edible, and gather it to yourself; and it shall be for food for you and for them.”
22 aThus Noah did; according to all that God had commanded him, so he did.
5 aNoah did according to all that the Lord had commanded him.
7 Then aNoah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark because of the water of the flood.
8 aOf 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 1by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
11 In the asix hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all bthe fountains of the great deep burst open, and the 1floodgates of the sky were opened.
13 On the very same day aNoah 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,
15 So they went into the ark to Noah, aby twos of all flesh in which was the breath of life.
19 The water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains 1everywhere under the heavens were covered.
22 of all that was on the dry land, all ain whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, died.
23 Thus He blotted out 1every living thing that was upon the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the 2sky, and they were blotted out from the earth; and only aNoah was left, together with those that were with him in the ark.
24 aThe water prevailed upon the earth one hundred and fifty days.
