7:1
God said to Noah, ‘Come into the ark, you and your family. I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation.
Vayomer Adonay le-Noach bo-atah vechol-beytcha el-hatevah ki-otcha ra’iti tsadik lefanay bador hazeh.
וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָה לְנֹחַ, בֹּא-אַתָּה וְכָל-בֵּיתְךָ אֶל-הַתֵּבָה: כִּי-אֹתְךָ רָאִיתִי צַדִּיק לְפָנַי, בַּדּוֹר הַזֶּה.

7:2
Take seven pairs of every clean animal, each consisting of a male and its mate. Of every animal that is not clean, take two, a male and its mate.
Mikol habehemah hatehorah tikach-lecha shiv’ah shiv’ah ish ve’ishto umin-habehemah asher lo tehorah hi shnayim ish ve’ishto.
מִכֹּל הַבְּהֵמָה הַטְּהוֹרָה, תִּקַּח-לְךָ שִׁבְעָה שִׁבְעָה–אִישׁ וְאִשְׁתּוֹ; וּמִן-הַבְּהֵמָה אֲשֶׁר לֹא טְהֹרָה הִוא, שְׁנַיִם–אִישׁ וְאִשְׁתּוֹ.

7:3
Of the birds of the heaven also take seven pairs, each consisting of a male and its mate. Let them keep seed alive on the face of all the earth,
Gam me’of hashamayim shiv’ah shiv’ah zachar unekevah lechayot zera al-peney chol-ha’arets.
גַּם מֵעוֹף הַשָּׁמַיִם שִׁבְעָה שִׁבְעָה, זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה, לְחַיּוֹת זֶרַע, עַל-פְּנֵי כָל-הָאָרֶץ.

7:4
because in another seven days, I will bring rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights. I will obliterate every organism that I have made from the face of the earth.
Ki le-yamim od shive’ah anochi mametir al-ha’arets arba’im yom ve’arba’im laylah umachiti et-kol-hayekum asher asiti me’al peney ha’adamah.
כִּי לְיָמִים עוֹד שִׁבְעָה, אָנֹכִי מַמְטִיר עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אַרְבָּעִים יוֹם, וְאַרְבָּעִים לָיְלָה; וּמָחִיתִי, אֶת-כָּל-הַיְקוּם אֲשֶׁר עָשִׂיתִי, מֵעַל, פְּנֵי הָאֲדָמָה.

7:5
Noah did all that God had commanded.
Vaya’as Noach kechol asher-tsivahu Adonay.
וַיַּעַשׂ, נֹחַ, כְּכֹל אֲשֶׁר-צִוָּהוּ, יְהוָה.

7:6
Noah was 600 years old when the flood occurred; water was on the earth.
VeNoach ben-shesh me’ot shanah vehamabul hayah mayim al-ha’arets.
וְנֹחַ, בֶּן-שֵׁשׁ מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה; וְהַמַּבּוּל הָיָה, מַיִם עַל-הָאָרֶץ.

7:7
Noah, along with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, came into the ark ahead of the waters of the flood.
Vayavo Noach uvanav ve’ishto uneshey-vanav ito el-hatevah mipeney mey hamabul.
וַיָּבֹא נֹחַ, וּבָנָיו וְאִשְׁתּוֹ וּנְשֵׁי-בָנָיו אִתּוֹ–אֶל-הַתֵּבָה: מִפְּנֵי, מֵי הַמַּבּוּל.

7:8
The clean animals, the animals which were not clean, the birds, and all that walked the earth
Min-habehemah hatehorah umin-habehemah asher eynenah tehorah umin-ha’of vechol asher-romes al-ha’adamah.
מִן-הַבְּהֵמָה, הַטְּהוֹרָה, וּמִן-הַבְּהֵמָה, אֲשֶׁר אֵינֶנָּה טְהֹרָה; וּמִן-הָעוֹף–וְכֹל אֲשֶׁר-רֹמֵשׂ, עַל-הָאֲדָמָה.

7:9
came two by two to Noah, to the ark. They were male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
Shenayim shnayim ba’u el-Noach el-hatevah zachar unekevah ka’asher tsivah Elohim et-Noach.
שְׁנַיִם שְׁנַיִם בָּאוּ אֶל-נֹחַ, אֶל-הַתֵּבָה–זָכָר וּנְקֵבָה: כַּאֲשֶׁר צִוָּה אֱלֹהִים, אֶת-נֹחַ.

7:10
Seven days passed, and the flood waters were on the earth.
Vayehi leshiv’at hayamim umey hamabul hayu al-ha’arets.
וַיְהִי, לְשִׁבְעַת הַיָּמִים; וּמֵי הַמַּבּוּל, הָיוּ עַל-הָאָרֶץ.

7:11
It was in the 600th year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the 17th of the month. On that day all the wellsprings of the great deep burst forth and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.
Bishnat shesh-me’ot shanah lechayey-Noach bachodesh hasheni beshiv’ah-asar yom lachodesh bayom hazeh niveke’u kol-mayenot tehom rabah va’arubot hashamayim niftachu.
בִּשְׁנַת שֵׁשׁ-מֵאוֹת שָׁנָה, לְחַיֵּי-נֹחַ, בַּחֹדֶשׁ הַשֵּׁנִי, בְּשִׁבְעָה-עָשָׂר יוֹם לַחֹדֶשׁ–בַּיּוֹם הַזֶּה, נִבְקְעוּ כָּל-מַעְיְנֹת תְּהוֹם רַבָּה, וַאֲרֻבֹּת הַשָּׁמַיִם, נִפְתָּחוּ.

7:12
It would continue to rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights.
Vayehi hageshem al-ha’arets arba’im yom ve’arba’im laylah.
וַיְהִי הַגֶּשֶׁם, עַל-הָאָרֶץ, אַרְבָּעִים יוֹם, וְאַרְבָּעִים לָיְלָה.

7:13
On that very day, Noah boarded the ark along with his sons, Shem, Ham and Yefeth. Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons were with them.
Be’etsem hayom hazeh ba Noach veShem-veCham vaYefet beney-Noach ve’eshet Noach usheloshet neshey-vanav itam el-hatevah.
וְבְּעֶצֶם הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה בָּא נֹחַ, וְשֵׁם-וְחָם וָיֶפֶת בְּנֵי-נֹחַ; וְאֵשֶׁת נֹחַ, וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת נְשֵׁי-בָנָיו אִתָּם–אֶל-הַתֵּבָה.

7:14
They came along with every separate kind of beast, every separate kind of livestock, every separate kind of land animal, and every separate kind of flying creature – every bird and every winged animal.
Hemah vechol-hachayah leminah vechol-habehemah leminah vechol haremes haromes al-ha’arets leminehu vechol-ha’of leminehu kol tsipor kol-kanaf.
הֵמָּה וְכָל-הַחַיָּה לְמִינָהּ, וְכָל-הַבְּהֵמָה לְמִינָהּ, וְכָל-הָרֶמֶשׂ הָרֹמֵשׂ עַל-הָאָרֶץ, לְמִינֵהוּ; וְכָל-הָעוֹף לְמִינֵהוּ, כֹּל צִפּוֹר כָּל-כָּנָף.

7:15
Of all flesh that has in it a breath of life, they came to Noah, to the ark, two by two.
Vayavo’u el-Noach el-hatevah shnayim shnayim mikol-habasar asher-bo ruach chayim.
וַיָּבֹאוּ אֶל-נֹחַ, אֶל-הַתֵּבָה, שְׁנַיִם שְׁנַיִם מִכָּל-הַבָּשָׂר, אֲשֶׁר-בּוֹ רוּחַ חַיִּים.

7:16
Those who came were male and female. Of all flesh they came, as God had commanded [Noah]. God then sealed him inside.
Be’etsem hayom hazeh ba Noach veShem-veCham vaYefet beney-Noach ve’eshet Noach usheloshet neshey-vanav itam el-hatevah.
וְבְּעֶצֶם הַיּוֹם הַזֶּה בָּא נֹחַ, וְשֵׁם-וְחָם וָיֶפֶת בְּנֵי-נֹחַ; וְאֵשֶׁת נֹחַ, וּשְׁלֹשֶׁת נְשֵׁי-בָנָיו אִתָּם–אֶל-הַתֵּבָה.
