Bible: Genesis 7:1-4

7:1 The Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, for I consider you godly among this generation. 1  7:2 You must take with you seven 2  of every kind of clean animal, 3  the male and its mate, 4  two of every kind of unclean animal, the male and its mate, 7:3 and also seven 5  of every kind of bird in the sky, male and female, 6  to preserve their offspring 7  on the face of the earth. 7:4 For in seven days 8  I will cause it to rain 9  on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the ground every living thing that I have made.”
