"And of all that liveth, whatsoever flesh it be, shalt thou bring into the ark, of every thing a pair, to keep them alive with thee. And male and female see that they be, of birds in their kind, and of beasts in their kind, and of all manner of worms of the earth in their kind: a pair of every thing shall come unto thee to keep them alive.
And the LORD said unto Noah, "Go into the ark both thou and all thy household. For thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of all clean beasts take unto thee seven of every kind, the male and his female, and of unclean beasts a pair, the male and his female: likewise of the birds of the air seven of every kind, male and female to save seed upon all the earth. read more.
For seven days hence will I send rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights and will destroy all manner of things that I have made, from off the face of the earth." And Noah did according to all that the LORD commanded him: and Noah was six hundred years old, when the flood of water came upon the earth. And Noah went, and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives with him, into the ark from the waters of the flood. And of clean beasts and of beasts that were unclean and of birds and of all that creepeth upon the earth, came in by couples of every kind unto Noah into the ark: a male and a female: even as God commanded Noah. And the seventh day the waters of the flood came upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, in the seventeenth day of the month, that same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened, and there fell a rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights. And the selfsame day went Noah, Shem, Ham and Japheth, Noah's sons, and Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons with them in to the ark: both they and all manner of beasts in their kind, and all manner of cattle in their kind and all manner of worms that creep upon the earth in their kind, and all manner of birds in their kind, and all manner of fowls whatsoever had feathers. And they came unto Noah into the ark by couples, of all flesh that had breath of life in it. And they that came, came male and female of every flesh according as God commanded him: and the LORD shut the door upon him.
