1. Mosebog 7:1-24

Ondskabens konsekvens

1Da Noa var færdig med at bygge arken, sagde Herren til ham: „Du og din familie skal gå om bord i arken, for du er den eneste, jeg kan acceptere blandt menneskene på jorden. 2-3Af alle slags fugle og de dyr, der bruges til ofringer og til mad, skal du tage syv par, en han og en hun, for at de siden hen kan formere sig på jorden. Af de øvrige dyr skal du kun tage ét par, en han og en hun. 4Om syv dage vil jeg sende regn, og det vil blive ved at regne uden ophør i 40 dage.7,4 På hebraisk 40 dage og 40 nætter, hvilket svarer til 40 dage og 39 nætter eller 39 døgn på dansk. Jeg vil udrydde alle levende væsener fra jordens overflade.”

5Noa gjorde, som Herren havde befalet ham: 6-11Han bad sin kone, sine sønner og deres koner om at gøre sig klar til at gå ind i arken, så de kunne blive reddet fra oversvømmelsen. Alle dyrearter kom parvis ind i arken, som Herren havde befalet. Syv dage efter at Gud havde talt, begyndte regnen. Jordens kilder og himlens sluser blev åbnet på den 17. dag i den anden måned i det år, hvor Noa blev 600, 12og det regnede uafbrudt i de næste 40 dage. 13På den dag, da regnen begyndte, gik Noa ind i arken sammen med sin kone og sine sønner, Sem, Kam og Jafet, og deres koner. 14Alle de forskellige dyr var allerede kommet ind i arken, både de tamme og vilde dyr og fuglene, 15ja, alt, hvad der kunne trække vejret, 16sådan som Gud havde befalet. Og Herren lukkede døren efter dem.

17I 40 dage blev vandet ved med at stige, og arken flød på vandet. 18Vandet steg og steg, 19indtil de højeste bjerge stod under vand. 20Vandet nåede mere end 7 meter over bjergtoppene. 21-22Alt levende på landjorden omkom—både dyr og mennesker. 23Kun Noa overlevede—og sammen med ham alle dem, som var i arken.

24I 150 dage var jorden i vandmassernes vold.

King James Version

Genesis 7:1-24

1And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. 2Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.7.2 by sevens: Heb. seven seven 3Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.7.3 by sevens: Heb. seven seven 4For 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 destroy from off the face of the earth.7.4 destroy: Heb. blot out

5And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. 6And 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. 8Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, 9There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. 10And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.7.10 after…: or, on the seventh day

11¶ In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.7.11 windows: or, floodgates 12And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.

13In 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; 14They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.7.14 sort: Heb. wing 15And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. 16And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

17And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth. 18And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. 19And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered. 20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.

21And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: 22All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.7.22 the breath…: Heb. the breath of the spirit of life 23And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark. 24And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
