Bible: Gen 6:13-21

6:13 So God said 1  to Noah, “I have decided that all living creatures must die, 2  for the earth is filled with violence because of them. Now I am about to destroy 3  them and the earth. 6:14 Make 4  for yourself an ark of cypress 5  wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover 6  it with pitch inside and out. 6:15 This is how you should make it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. 7  6:16 Make a roof for the ark and finish it, leaving 18 inches 8  from the top. 9  Put a door in the side of the ark, and make lower, middle, and upper decks. 6:17 I am about to bring 10  floodwaters 11  on the earth to destroy 12  from under the sky all the living creatures that have the breath of life in them. 13  Everything that is on the earth will die, 6:18 but I will confirm 14  my covenant with you. You will enter 15  the ark – you, your sons, your wife, and your sonswives with you. 6:19 You must bring into the ark two of every kind of living creature from all flesh, 16  male and female, to keep them alive 17  with you. 6:20 Of the birds after their kinds, and of the cattle after their kinds, and of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every kind will come to you so you can keep them alive. 18  6:21 And you must take 19  for yourself every kind of food 20  that is eaten, 21  and gather it together. 22  It will be food for you and for them.
