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
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
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
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
1 And God remembered Noah, and
every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in
the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the
2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were
stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and
after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were
4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth
day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month:
in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the
tops of the mountains seen.
6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened
the window of the ark which he had made:
7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until
the waters were dried up from off the earth.
8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were
abated from off the face of the ground;
9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she
returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face
of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her,
and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth
the dove out of the ark;
11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her
mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters
were abated from off the earth.
12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove;
which returned not again unto him any more.
13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year,
in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were
dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of
the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was
14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of
the month, was the earth dried.
15 And God spake unto Noah, saying,
16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and
thy sons' wives with thee.
17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee,
of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping
thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly
in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his
sons' wives with him:
19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever
creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of
20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every
clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings
on the altar.
21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in
his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's
sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth;
neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I
22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold
and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not
1 And God blessed Noah and his
sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish
2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every
beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all
that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea;
into your hand are they delivered.
3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even
as the green herb have I given you all things.
4 But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof,
shall ye not eat.
5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the
hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man;
at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of
6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed:
for in the image of God made he man.
7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly
in the earth, and multiply therein.
8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with
your seed after you;
10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl,
of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from
all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
11 And I will establish my covenant with you, neither shall
all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither
shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make
between me and you and every living creature that is with you,
for perpetual generations:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token
of a covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the
earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and
you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall
no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it,
that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and
every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant,
which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon
18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem,
and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan.
19 These are the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole
20 And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered
within his tent.
22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father,
and told his two brethren without.
23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both
their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness
of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw
not their father's nakedness.
24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son
had done unto him.
25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall
he be unto his brethren.
26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan
shall be his servant.
27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents
of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years:
and he died.
