1

And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,



2

that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives, whomsoever they chose.

3

And HaShem said: 'My spirit shall not abide in man for ever, for that he also is flesh; therefore shall his days be a hundred and twenty years.'



4

The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown.

5

And HaShem saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.



6

And it repented HaShem that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart.

7

And HaShem said: 'I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and creeping thing, and fowl of the air; for it repenteth Me that I have made them.'



8

But Noah found grace in the eyes of HaShem.

9

These are the generations of Noah. Noah was in his generations a man righteous and wholehearted; Noah walked with God.



10

And Noah begot three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

11

And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.



12

And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.

13

And God said unto Noah: 'The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.



14

Make thee an ark of gopher wood; with rooms shalt thou make the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.

15

And this is how thou shalt make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.



16

A light shalt thou make to the ark, and to a cubit shalt thou finish it upward; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.

17

And I, behold, I do bring the flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; every thing that is in the earth shall perish.



18

But I will establish My covenant with thee; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives with thee.

19

And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female.



20

Of the fowl after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive.

21

And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.'



22

Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.

Chapter Seven

And HaShem said unto Noah: 'Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation.

2

Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee seven and seven, each with his mate; and of the beasts that are not clean two and two, each with his mate;



3

of the fowl also of the air, seven and seven, male and female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

4

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I blot out from off the face of the earth.'



5

And Noah did according unto all that HaShem commanded him.

6

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.



7

And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

8

Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the ground,



9

there went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah.

10

And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.



11

In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

12

And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.



13

In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

14

they, and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every sort.



15

And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life.

16

And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and HaShem shut him in.



17

And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth.

18

And the waters prevailed, and increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters.



19

And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered.

20

Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.


21

And all flesh perished that moved upon the earth, both fowl, and cattle, and beast, and every swarming thing that swarmeth upon the earth, and every man;

22

all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, whatsoever was in the dry land, died.



23

And He blotted out every living substance which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping thing, and fowl of the heaven; and they were blotted out from the earth; and Noah only was left, and they that were with him in the ark.

24

And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.



Chapter Eight

And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;

2

the fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.



3

And the waters returned from off the earth continually; and after the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters decreased.

4

And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.



5

And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.

6

And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made.



7

And he sent forth a raven, and it went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

8

And he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground.



9

But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him to the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth; and he put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her in unto him into the ark.

10

And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark.



11

And the dove came in to him at eventide; and lo in her mouth an olive-leaf freshly plucked; so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

12

And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; and she returned not again unto him any more.



13

And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dried.

14

And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dry.



15

And God spoke unto Noah, saying:

16

'Go forth from the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.



17

Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee of all flesh, both fowl, and cattle, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may swarm in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.'

18

And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him;



19

every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, whatsoever moveth upon the earth, after their families; went forth out of the ark.

20

And Noah builded an altar unto HaShem; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt-offerings on the altar.



21

And HaShem smelled the sweet savour; and HaShem said in His heart: 'I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.

22

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.'
