Genesis 7
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And God said to Noah, “Enter you and all your house to the ark, because you I have seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. 2And of every pure beast take to yourselves seven by seven, male and female, and from the beast that is not pure, two by two, male and female. 3Also from a bird of Heaven, seven by seven, male and female, to save seed on the face of all the Earth. 4Because after seven days I am sending down rain on the Earth forty days and forty nights, and shall blot out everything that lives, which I have made, from the face of the Earth.” 5And Noah did everything that LORD JEHOVAH commanded him.

6And Noah was a son of six hundred years, and there was a flood of waters on the Earth. 7And Noah entered, and his children, and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him into the ark from before the waters of the flood. 8And of the pure cattle and of the herd animal that was not pure, and of the bird, and from every creeper on the Earth, 9Two by two they entered with Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. 10And seven days passed and the water of the flood was on the Earth. 11In the six hundredth year of the years of the life of Noah, in the second month, in the seventeenth in the month, in it in this day, all springs of the great depths exploded, and the floodgates of Heaven were opened. 12And there was rain on the Earth forty days and forty nights.

13On it on this day, Noah entered the ark and Sheem and Kham and Yapheth, sons of Noah, and the wife of Noah and the three wives of his sons with him; 14Those and every animal by its kind, and every beast by its kind, and every creeper that creeps on the Earth by their kinds, and every bird by its kind and every small bird and every winged creature. 15They entered with Noah by two into the ark, two of all flesh that had in them the SpiritBreath of life. 16And they that entered, male and female, of all flesh, they entered as God commanded him, and LORD JEHOVAH shut in its door.

17And the flood was forty days on the Earth, and the waters increased, and they lifted the ark and it was lifted up from the Earth. 18And the waters prevailed and increased much on the Earth and the ark was moving on the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed greatly on the Earth and all the high mountains were covered under all of Heaven. 20The waters exceeded fifteen cubits higher and covered the mountains. 21And all flesh ended that creeps on the Earth bird, and herd animal, and the wild beast, and all the creepers that creep on the Earth, and all children of men: 22Everything that had the breath of the Spirit of life in its nostrils, of everything that was on dry land, died. 23And he blotted out all that live on the face of the Earth, from children of men and unto the domestic animal, and unto the creeper, and unto the bird of Heaven; they were wiped out from the Earth, and Noah remained and those with him in the ark. 24And the waters increased on the Earth a hundred and fifty days.
