創世記 7

1とうとうその日がきました。主はノアに言いました。「さあ、家族全員で船に入りなさい。この地上で正しい人間といえるのは、あなただけだから。 動物も一つがいずつ連れて入りなさい。ただし、食用と神へのささげ物に特別に選んだ動物は、それぞれ七つがいずつだ。 ほかに、鳥も七つがいずつ入れなさい。こうしておけば、洪水が終わってから、もう一度生き物が繁殖できる。 あと一週間たつと雨が降り始め、四十日の間、昼も夜も降り続く。わたしが造ったすべての生き物はみな死に絶えるだろう。」

ノアは、すべて命じられたとおりにしました。 洪水が襲ってきた時、彼は六百歳でした。 大水から逃れるため、彼は急いで妻と息子夫婦を連れて船に乗り込みました。 8-9 あらゆる種類の動物もみないっしょです。食用と神へのささげ物の動物も、そうでない動物も、鳥もはうものもです。すべて神がノアに命じたとおり、雄と雌のつがいで入りました。

10-12 一週間後、ノアが生まれて六百年と二か月十七日たった日のことです。大雨が降り始め、地下水までが勢いよく吹き出してきました。四十日の間、昼も夜もそんな状態が続きました。 13 しかし、まさにその日にノアは、妻と息子セム、ハム、ヤペテとその妻たちを連れて船に乗り込んだのです。 14-15 家畜といわず野生のものといわず、あらゆる種類の動物、はうもの、鳥もいっしょでした。 16 主の命令どおり、それぞれが雄と雌のつがいで入れられたのです。そのあと神が船の扉を閉じ、心配はなくなりました。

17 四十日の間、地上はすさまじい勢いで増水しました。世界中がすっかり水で覆われたので、船は水の上に浮かびました。 18 みるみる水かさが増していきましたが、船は水に浮かんでいるので安全でした。

19 とうとう、世界中の山という山がすべて水に覆われてしまいました。 20 一番高い頂でさえ、水面から七メートルも下に沈んだほどです。 21 ついに、鳥も家畜と野生の動物もはうものも、そして全人類も、地上の生き物はみな死に絶えました。 22 かつて、乾いた地の上で生き、呼吸していたものは、絶滅しました。 23 こうして、地上の全生物が姿を消しました。神が滅ぼされたのです。かろうじて生き残ったのは、ノアといっしょに船に乗っていたものたちだけでした。 24 水はさらに百五十日の間、地上を覆っていました。

King James Version

Genesis 7

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.

Of 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.

Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

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 destroy from off the face of the earth.

And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him.

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

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.

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

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

10 And it came to pass after 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, 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.

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 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.

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 had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in.

17 And 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.

18 And the waters prevailed, and were 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 hills, 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 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:

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.

23 And 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.

24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.
