Then the LORD said to Noah, 'Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone
I have seen to be
righteous before Me in this generation.
You shall take with you seven pairs of every clean animal, a male and his female; and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and his female;
also of the birds of the sky, seven pairs, male and female, to keep their
offspring alive on the face of all the earth.
For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights; and I will wipe out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made.'
So Noah acted in accordance with everything that the LORD had commanded him.
