Then God said, "Let the water swarm with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky."
So God created the large sea-creatures and every living creature that moves and swarms in the water, according to their kinds. [He also created] every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
So God blessed them, "Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the waters of the seas, and let the birds multiply on the earth."
Evening came, and then morning: the fifth day.
Then God said, "Let the earth produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that crawl, and the wildlife of the earth according to their kinds." And it was so.
He saw heaven opened and an object coming down that resembled a large sheet being lowered to the earth by its four corners.
In it were all the four-footed animals and reptiles of the earth, and the birds of the sky.
God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, and every creature that crawls on the earth."
So the LORD God formed out of the ground each wild animal and each bird of the sky, and brought each to the man to see what he would call it. And whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
From the clean animals, unclean animals, birds, and every creature that crawls on the ground,
two of each, male and female, entered the ark with Noah, just as God had commanded him.
Seven days later the waters of the deluge came on the earth.
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the sources of the watery depths burst open, the floodgates of the sky were opened,
and the rain fell on the earth 40 days and 40 nights.
On that same day Noah along with his sons Shem, Ham, and Japheth, Noah's wife, and his three sons' wives entered the ark with him.
They [entered it] with all the wildlife according to their kinds, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that crawls on the earth according to its kind, all birds, every fowl, and everything with wings according to their kinds.
Two of all flesh that has the breath of life in it entered the ark with Noah.
Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered just as God had commanded him. Then the LORD shut him in.
And you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
