New International Version

Genesis 7:1-24

1The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. 2Take with you seven pairs of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and one pair of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate, 3and also seven pairs of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth. 4Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”

5And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him.

6Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth. 7And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood. 8Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, 9male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah. 10And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.

11In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.

13On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark. 14They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. 15Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark. 16The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the Lord shut him in.

17For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits.7:20 That is, about 23 feet or about 6.8 meters7:20 Or rose more than fifteen cubits, and the mountains were covered 21Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.

24The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.

创世记 7:1-24

洪水泛滥

1耶和华对挪亚说:“你和你一家都进入方舟,因为这个世代只有你在我眼中是义人。 2洁净的动物,你要每样带七公七母,不洁净的动物每样带一公一母, 3飞鸟每样带七公七母,叫它们以后可以在地上繁衍后代。 4因为七天之后,我要在地上降雨四十昼夜,毁灭我所造的一切生灵。” 5凡耶和华所吩咐的,挪亚都照办了。

6洪水泛滥的那一年,挪亚正好六百岁。 7挪亚与妻子、儿子们和儿媳们都进了方舟,躲避洪水。 8洁净的动物、不洁净的动物、飞禽和地上的一切爬虫, 9都一公一母成对地到挪亚那里,进了方舟,正如上帝对挪亚的吩咐。 10那七天过后,洪水在地上泛滥起来。

11挪亚六百岁那年的二月7:11 二月”按犹太历计算,本卷书所用月份都是按犹太历计算。十七日,所有深渊的泉源都裂开了,天上的水闸也打开了, 12地上倾盆大雨降了四十昼夜。 13那天,挪亚与他的儿子雅弗,还有挪亚的妻子和三个儿媳妇都进了方舟。 14所有的野兽、牲畜、地上的爬虫和飞鸟都按种类进入方舟。 15-16这些动物都一公一母成对地到挪亚那里,进入方舟,正如上帝对挪亚的吩咐。耶和华关上了方舟的门。

17洪水在地上泛滥了四十天,水不断地往上涨,把方舟漂了起来。 18洪水来势汹汹,淹没大地,方舟漂浮在水面上。 19水势越来越大,把天下各处的高山都淹没了。 20水淹没了群山,水面高出群山七米。 21世上所有的飞禽、走兽、牲畜、爬虫和人类都死了。 22在陆地上所有用鼻孔呼吸的生灵都死了。 23地上的人类、飞禽走兽和爬虫等一切生灵都被毁灭了,只剩下挪亚和跟他同在方舟里的生灵。 24洪水淹没大地一百五十天。
