GEN 6:11 And the earth is corrupt before God, and the earth is filled `with' violence.

GEN 6:12 And God seeth the earth, and lo, it hath been corrupted, for all flesh hath corrupted its way on the earth.

GEN 6:13 And God said to Noah, `An end of all flesh hath come before Me, for the earth hath been full of violence from their presence; and lo, I am destroying them with the earth.

GEN 6:14 `Make for thyself an ark of gopher-wood; rooms dost thou make with the ark, and thou hast covered it within and without with cypress;

GEN 6:15 and this `is' that which thou dost with it: three hundred cubits `is' the length of the ark, fifty cubits its breadth, and thirty cubits its height;

GEN 6:16 a window dost thou make for the ark, and unto a cubit thou dost restrain it from above; and the opening of the ark thou dost put in its side, -- lower, second, and third `stories' dost thou make it.

GEN 6:17 `And I, lo, I am bringing in the deluge of waters on the earth to destroy all flesh, in which `is' a living spirit, from under the heavens; all that `is' in the earth doth expire.

GEN 6:18 `And I have established My covenant with thee, and thou hast come in unto the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy son's wives with thee;

GEN 6:19 and of all that liveth, of all flesh, two of every `sort' thou dost bring in unto the ark, to keep alive with thee; male and female are they.

GEN 6:20 Of the fowl after its kind, and of the cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the ground after its kind, two of every `sort' they come in unto thee, to keep alive.
