ዘፍጥረት 7:1-24

1እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ኖኅን እንዲህ አለው፤ “በዚህ ትውልድ መካከል አንተን ጻድቅ ሆነህ አግኝቼሃለሁና ቤተ ሰብህን በሙሉ ይዘህ ወደ መርከቧ ግባ። 2ከንጹሕ እንስሳት ሁሉ ሰባት ሰባት7፥2 ወይም ሰባት ጥንድ፤ በቍ 3 ም እንዲሁ ተባዕትና እንስት፣ 3 ንጹህ ካልሆኑት እንስሳት ደግሞ ሁለት ሁለት ተባዕትና እንስት 3እንዲሁም ከወፎች ወገን ሁሉ ሰባት ተባዕትና ሰባት እንስት፣ በምድር ላይ ለዘር እንዲተርፉ ከአንተ ጋር ታስገባለህ። 4ከሰባት ቀን በኋላ አርባ ቀንና አርባ ሌሊት በምድር ላይ ዝናብ አዘንባለሁ፤ የፈጠርሁትንም ሕያው ፍጡር ሁሉ ከምድር ገጽ አጠፋለሁ።”

5ኖኅም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ያዘዘውን ሁሉ አደረገ።

6የጥፋት ውሃ በምድር ላይ በወረደ ጊዜ ኖኅ የ600 ዓመት ሰው ነበር። 7ኖኅና ወንዶች ልጆቹ፣ ሚስቱና የልጆቹ ሚስቶች ከጥፋት ውሃ ለመትረፍ ወደ መርከቧ ገቡ። 8ንጹሕ ከሆኑትና ንጹሕ ካልሆኑት እንስሳት፣ ከወፎችና በምድር ላይ ከሚሳቡ ፍጡራን ሁሉ ጥንድ ጥንድ፣ 9ተባዕትና እንስት ሆነው ወደ ኖኅ መጡ፤ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅን ባዘዘውም መሠረት ወደ መርከቧ ገቡ። 10ከሰባት ቀንም በኋላ የጥፋት ውሃ በምድር ላይ መጣ።

11ኖኅ በተወለደ በ600ኛው ዓመት፣ በሁለተኛው ወር፣ ከወሩም በዐሥራ ሰባተኛው ቀን፣ በዚያ ቀን የታላቁ ጥልቅ ምንጮች በሙሉ ተነደሉ፤ የሰማይ መስኮቶችም ተከፈቱ፤ 12አርባ ቀንና አርባ ሌሊት በምድር ላይ ዝናብ ዘነበ።

13በዚያኑ ዕለት ኖኅና ልጆቹ ሴም፣ ካምና ያፌት፣ እንዲሁም ሚስቱና ሦስቱ የልጆቹ ሚስቶች ወደ መርከቧ ገቡ። 14ከዱር እንስሳት ከየወገኑ፣ ከቤት እንስሳት ከየወገኑ፣ በምድር ላይ ከሚሳቡ ፍጡራን ከየወገናቸው፣ ከወፎችም ከየወገናቸውና ክንፍ ያላቸው ሁሉ አብረዋቸው ገቡ። 15የሕይወት እስትንፋስ ያለባቸው ፍጡራን በሙሉ ጥንድ ጥንድ እየሆኑ ወደ ኖኅ በመምጣት መርከቧ ውስጥ ገቡ። 16ከሕያዋንም ፍጡራን ሁሉ እግዚአብሔር (ኤሎሂም) ኖኅን ባዘዘው መሠረት ተባዕትና እንስት እየሆኑ ገቡ፤ ከዚያም እግዚአብሔር (ያህዌ) ከውጭ ዘጋበት።

17የጥፋት ውሃም ለአርባ ቀናት ያለ ማቋረጥ በምድር ላይ ዘነበ፤ ውሃው እየጨመረ በሄደ መጠን መርከቧን ከምድር ወደ ላይ አነሣት። 18ውሃው በምድር ላይ በጣም እየ ጨመረና ከፍ እያለ ሲሄድ፣ መርከቧ በውሃው ላይ ተንሳፈፈች። 19ውሃው በጣም ከፍ በማለቱ፣ ከሰማይ በታች ያሉትን ታላላቅ ተራሮች ሁሉ ሸፈናቸው። 20ውሃው ከተራሮቹ ጫፍ በላይ 7 ሜትር ያህል ከፍ አለ። 21በምድር ላይ የነበሩ ሕያዋን ፍጡራን ሁሉ፦ ወፎች፣ የቤት እንሰሳት፣ የዱር እንስሳት በምድር የሚርመሰመሱ ፍጡራን፣ ሰዎችም በሙሉ ጠፉ። 22በአፍንጫቸው የሕይወት እስትንፋስ ያላቸው በየብስ የነበሩ ፍጡራን ሁሉ ሞቱ። 23ሕይወት ያላቸው ፍጡራን ሁሉ ከምድር ገጽ ጠፉ፤ ሰዎችና እንስሳት በምድር ላይ የሚሳቡ ፍጡራንና የሰማይ ወፎች ከምድር ላይ ጠፉ፤ ኖኅና ከእርሱ ጋር በመርከቧ ውስጥ የነበሩት ብቻ ተረፉ።

24ውሃውም ምድርን ሸፍኖ መቶ አምሳ ቀን ቈየ።

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.
