Genesis 7:1-10 - Entering The Ark

1 Then the LORD told Noah, "Come you and all your household into the ark, because I've seen that you alone are righteous in this generation. 2 You are to take with you seven pairs of every clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of the unclean animals, a male and its mate; 3 along with seven pairs of the flying birds, male and female, in order to keep their offspring alive on the surface of all the earth. 4 Seven days from now I'll send rain on the earth for 40 days and 40 nights, and I'll destroy every living creature that I've made." 5 Noah did everything that the LORD commanded.

6 Noah was 600 years old when water began to flood the earth. 7 Noah, his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives entered the ark with him before the flood waters arrived. 8 From both clean and unclean animals, from birds, and from everything that crawls on the ground, 9 two by two, male and female, they entered the ark to join Noah, just as God had commanded. 10 Seven days later, the flooding started.
