Bible: Genesis 6:13-22
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 sons’ wives 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.
