And they that came, came male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him. And Jehovah shut him in.
And the flood was forty days on the earth. And the waters increased, and bore up the ark; and it was lifted up above the earth.
And the waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth; and the ark went on the face of the waters.
And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth; and all the high mountains that are under all the heavens were covered.
Fifteen cubits upward the waters prevailed; and the mountains were covered.
And all flesh that moved on the earth expired, fowl as well as cattle, and beasts, and all crawling things which crawl on the earth, and all mankind:
everything which had in its nostrils the breath of life, of all that was on the dry [land], died.
And every living being was destroyed that was on the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping things, and fowl of the heavens; and they were destroyed from the earth. And Noah alone remained, and what was with him in the ark.
And the waters prevailed on the earth a hundred and fifty days.
And God remembered Noah, and all the animals, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.
And the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were closed, and the pour of rain from heaven was stopped.
And the waters retired from the earth, continually retiring; and in the course of a hundred and fifty days the waters abated.
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat.
And the waters abated continually until the tenth month: in the tenth [month], on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
And it came to pass at the end of forty days that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made.
And he sent out the raven, which went forth going to and fro, until the waters were dried from the earth.
And he sent out the dove from him, to see if the waters had become low on the ground.
But the dove found no resting-place for the sole of her foot, and returned to him into the ark; for the waters were on the whole earth; and he put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the ark.
And he waited yet other seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark.
And the dove came to him at eventide; and behold, in her beak was an olive-leaf plucked off; and Noah knew that the waters had become low on the earth.
And he waited yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove; but she returned no more to him.
And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first [month], on the first of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the surface of the ground was dried.
And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry.
And God spoke to Noah, saying,
Go out of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons039; wives with thee.
