Genesis 7:1-24, NLT
The Flood Covers the Earth
1When everything was ready, the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the boat with all your family, for among all the people of the earth, I can see that you alone are righteous.
5So Noah did everything as the Lord commanded him.
6Noah was 600 years old when the flood covered the earth.
11When Noah was 600 years old, on the seventeenth day of the second month, all the underground waters erupted from the earth, and the rain fell in mighty torrents from the sky.
13That very day Noah had gone into the boat with his wife and his sons—Shem, Ham, and Japheth—and their wives.
17For forty days the floodwaters grew deeper, covering the ground and lifting the boat high above the earth.
