The Great Flood
(2 Peter 3:1–7)

1And Jehovah will say to Noah, Come thou, and all thy house into the ark, for thee I saw just to my face in this generation. 2From all clean cattle thou shalt take to thee seven; seven male and female; and from cattle which are not clean, this two, male and female. 3Also of birds of the heavens, seven: seven male and female, to preserve alive seed upon the face of all the earth. 4For yet seven days, and I will give rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights: and I will wipe out every living thing which I made from the face of the earth. 5And Noah will do according to all which Jehovah commanded him.

6And Noah the son of six hundred years, and the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7And Noah shall come in, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him to the ark from the face of the water of the flood. 8From clean beasts, and from cattle which are not clean, and from birds and all which creeps upon the earth. 9Two and two went in to Noah to the ark, male and female, according to which God commanded Noah. 10And it shall be seven days; and the waters of the flood shall be upon the earth. 11In the year of six hundred years of Noah's life, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, in the same day all the fountains of the great deep were divided and the sluices of the heavens were opened. 12And the rain shall be upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

13In that very day went in Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth; Noah's sons, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them to the ark. 14They, and every living thing after its kind, and all cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing creeping upon the earth, after its kind, and every bird after his kind, and every small bird of every wing. 15And they shall go in to Noah to the ark, two from all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16And they going in, went in male and female from all flesh according to which God commanded him: and Jehovah shut him within.

17And the flood shall be forty days upon the earth, and the waters shall multiply, and shall take up the ark, and it shall be lifted up from above the earth. 18And the waters shall prevail and shall multiply exceedingly upon the earth: and the ark shall go upon the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly exceedingly upon the earth: and all the high mountains which are underneath all the heavens shall be covered. 20Fifteen cubits from upward, the waters prevailed: and will cover the mountains. 21And all flesh shall die that creeping upon the earth, with birds and with cattle and with beast and with every creeping thing that creeping upon the earth, and every man. 22All which the breath of the spirit of life in the nostrils of all which is in the dry land died. 23And every living thing shall be wiped off which upon the face of the earth, from man even to cattle, even to the creeping thing, and even to the birds of the heavens; and they shall be wiped out from the earth, and Noah only shall remain and they which with him in the ark. 24And the waters shall prevail upon the earth fifty and one hundred days.
