THE VOYAGE OF THE BIG BOAT

 

Genesis 6:13-22--7:1-24

13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before

me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and,

behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make thee an ark

of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch

it within and without with pitch. 15 And this [is the fashion]

which thou shalt make it [of]: The length of the ark [shall be]

three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the

height of it thirty cubits. 16 A window shalt thou make to the

ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of

the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; [with] lower, second,

and third [stories] shalt thou make it. 17 And, behold, I, even

I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all

flesh, wherein [is] the breath of life, from under heaven; [and]

every thing that [is] in the earth shall die. 18 But with thee

will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark,

thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

19 And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every [sort]

shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep [them] alive with thee;

they shall be male and female. 20 Of fowls after their kind, and

of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth

after his kind, two of every [sort] shall come unto thee, to keep

[them] alive. 21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is

eaten, and thou shalt gather [it] to thee; and it shall be for

food for thee, and for them. 22 Thus did Noah; according to all

that God commanded him, so did he. 7:1 And the LORD said unto

Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I

seen righteous before me in this generation. 2 Of every clean

beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female:

and of beasts that [are] not clean by two, the male and his

female. 3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the

female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. 4 For

yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty

days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made

will I destroy from off the face of the earth. 5 And Noah did

according unto all that the LORD commanded him. 6 And Noah [was]

six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

7 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons'

wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that [are] not clean, and of

fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, 9 There

went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the

female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it came to pass after

seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. 11

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the

seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains

of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were

opened. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty

nights. 13 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham,

and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three

wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 14 They, and every

beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and

every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind,

and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort. 15 And

they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh,

wherein [is] the breath of life. 16 And they that went in, went

in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the

LORD shut him in. 17 And the flood was forty days upon the earth;

and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up

above the earth. 18 And the waters prevailed, and were increased

greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the

waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth;

and all the high hills, that [were] under the whole heaven, were

covered. 20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the

mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved upon the

earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every

creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22

All in whose nostrils [was] the breath of life, of all that [was]

in the dry [land], died. 23 And every living substance was

destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and

cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and

they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained

[alive], and they that [were] with him in the ark. 24 And the

waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
