Then Noah and his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives with him entered the ark because of the waters of the flood.
Of clean animals and animals that are not clean and birds and everything that crawls on the ground,
went into the ark to Noah by twos, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
Now it came about after the seven days, that the waters of the flood came upon the earth.
In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.
The rain fell upon the earth for forty days and forty nights.
On this very same day Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark,
they and every animal according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kind, and every crawling thing that crawls on the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, all sorts of birds.
