B’reshit 7 – ברשית ז

1And  יהוה  said unto No’akh, “Come, you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen righteous before Me in this generation. 2Of every clean beast you shall take to you seven and seven, each with his mate; and of the beasts that are not clean two, each with his mate; 3of the fowl also of the air, seven and seven, male and female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. 4For 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 blot out from off the face of the earth.” 

5And No’akh did according unto all that  יהוה  commanded him. 6And No’akh was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. 7And No’akh went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood. 8Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creeps upon the ground, 9there went in two and two unto No’akh into the ark, male and female, as Elohim commanded No’akh. 10And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. 

11In the six-hundredth year of the life of No’akh, in the second khodesh, on the seventeenth day of the khodesh, on the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13In the selfsame day entered No’akh, and Shem, and Kham, and Yafet, the sons of No’akh, and the wife of No’akh, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; 14they, and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15And they went in unto No’akh into the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life. 16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as Elohim commanded him; and  יהוה  shut him in. 

17And the flood was forty days upon the earth; 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 went upon the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered. 20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. 21And all flesh perished that moved upon the earth, both fowl, and cattle, and beast, and every swarming thing that swarms upon the earth, and every man; 22all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, whatever was in the dry land, died. 23And He blotted out every living substance which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping thing, and fowl of the heaven; and they were blotted out from the earth; and No’akh only was left, and they that were with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
