Genesis 7
A Faithful Version

1And the LORD said to Noah, "You and all your house shall come into the ark; for you, I have seen righteous before Me in this generation. 2You shall take with you every clean animal by sevens, the male and female. And take two of the animals that are not clean, the male and female. 3Also take of the fowls of the air by sevens, the male and the female, to keep their kind alive upon the face of all the earth; 4For in seven more days, I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will destroy from off the face of the earth every living thing that I have made." 5And Noah did according to all that the LORD commanded him.

6And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters began upon the earth. 7And Noah went in; and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives went with him into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8Of the clean animals, and of the animals that were not clean, and of the fowls, and of every thing that crawls upon the earth, 9Two by two they went unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood came upon the earth. 11In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on this day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the heavens were opened. 12And the rain fell upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

13On this same day, Noah and Shem and Ham and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, entered into the ark. 14They went in, and every animal after its kind, and all the livestock after their kind, and every crawling thing that crawls upon the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15And they went to Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16And they that entered went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him; and the LORD shut him in.

17And the flood was upon the earth forty days, and the waters increased and bore up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth. 18And the waters prevailed and increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark floated upon the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth, and all the high hills that were under the heavens were covered. 20The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21And all flesh that moved upon the face of the earth died--of birds, of livestock, of animals, and of every crawling thing that crawls upon the earth, and every man-- 22And all who breathed the breath of life, of all that was upon the dry land--died. 23And every living thing which was upon the face of the earth was destroyed, from man to livestock, and to the crawling things, and the fowls of the heavens. And they were destroyed from the earth, and only Noah remained alive, and those that were with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
