6and Noe was .vi. hundred yere olde when the floud of water came vppon the erth: 7and Noe went and his sonnes and his wyfe and his sonnes wyves wyth hym in to the arke from the waters of the floud. 8And of clene beastes and of beastes that ware vnclene and of byrdes and of all that crepeth vppo the erth 9came in by cooples of every kynde vnto Noe in to the arke: a male and a female: even as God commaunded Noe. 10And the seventh daye the waters of the floud came vppon the erth. 11In the .vi. hundred yere of Noes lyfe in the secode moneth in the .xvij daye of the moneth yt same daye were all the founteynes of the grete depe broken vp and the wyndowes of heave were opened 12ad there fell a rayne vpon the erth .xl. dayes and .xl. nyghtes.

13And the selfe same daye went Noe Sem Ham and Iapheth Noes sonnes and Noes wyfe and the .iij. wyues of his sonnes wyth them in to the arke: 14both they and all maner of beastes in their kide and all maner of catell in their kynde and all maner of wormes that crepe vppon the erth in their kynde and all maner of byrdes in there kynde. and all maner off foules what soever had feders. 15And they came vnto Noe in to the arke by cooples of all flesh yt had breth of lyfe in it. 16And they that came came male ad female of every flesh acordige as God comaunded hym: and ye LORde shytt the dore vppo him

17And the floud came .xl. dayes and .xl. nyghtes vppon the erth and the water increased and bare vp the arcke ad it was lifte vp from of the erth 18And the water prevayled and increased exceadingly vppon the erth: and the a rke went vppo he toppe of the waters. 19And the waters prevayled excedingly above mesure vppo the erth so that all the hye hylles which are vnder all the partes of heaven were covered: 20eve .xv. cubytes hye prevayled the waters so that the hylles were covered. 21And all fleshe that moved on the erth bothe birdes catell and beastes perisshed with al that crepte on the erth and all men: 22so that all that had the breth of liffe in the nostrels of it thorow out all that was on drye lond dyed. 23Thus was destroyed all that was vppo the erth both man beastes wormes and foules of the ayre so that they were destroyed from the erth: save Noe was reserved only and they that were wyth hym in the arke. 24And the waters prevayled vppon the erth an hundred and fyftye dayes.
