The Deluge, all that the LORD commanded him. 6 And 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. 8 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth, 9 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, 3 after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth, 11*In the sixth hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains c of the great deep broken up, and the 4 windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. 13.

And God spake unto Noah,

Saying, iščforth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. 17 Bring forth with , thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, . h be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. 18 And Noah went forth, and his Sons, and his wife, and his sons wives with him : 19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their 5 kinds, went forth out of the

ark. 20 T. And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD ; and took of i every glean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt-offerings on the altar. 21 And the LORD smelled a 6 sweet savour: }; and the LORD said in his heart, f will not again l curse the ground any more for man's sake; 7 for the m imagination of mam's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again n smite any more every thing living, as I have done. 23 While &the earth remaineth o seed-time and harvest, and coid and heat, and summer and winter, and day and o shall not cease.

And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, a and covered the makedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. 24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger Son had done unto him. 25 And he said, y Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. 26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be 2 his servant. 27 God shall 3 enlarge Japheth, z and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his
