For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and
as the waters increased
they lifted the ark high above the earth. The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on
the surface of the water. They
rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. The waters rose and
covered the mountains
to a depth of more than twenty feet. Every living thing that moved on the earth perished—birds, livestock, wild
animals, all the creatures
that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died.
Every living thing on the face
of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were
wiped from the earth. Only
Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.
The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
