1 وقال الرب لنوح ادخل انت وجميع بيتك الى الفلك. لاني اياك رأيت بارا لديّ في هذا الجيل.

2 من جميع البهائم الطاهرة تأخذ معك سبعة سبعة ذكرا وانثى. ومن البهائم التي ليست بطاهرة اثنين ذكرا وانثى.

3 ومن طيور السماء ايضا سبعة سبعة ذكرا وانثى. لاستبقاء نسل على وجه كل الارض.

4 لاني بعد سبعة ايام ايضا امطر على الارض اربعين يوما واربعين ليلة. وامحو عن وجه الارض كل قائم عملته.

5 ففعل نوح حسب كل ما امره به الرب

6 ولما كان نوح ابن ست مئة سنة صار طوفان الماء على الارض.

7 فدخل نوح وبنوه وامرأته ونساء بنيه معه الى الفلك من وجه مياه الطوفان.

8 ومن البهائم الطاهرة والبهائم التي ليست بطاهرة ومن الطيور وكل ما يدبّ على الارض

9 دخل اثنان اثنان الى نوح الى الفلك ذكرا وانثى. كما امر الله نوحا

10 وحدث بعد السبعة الايام ان مياه الطوفان صارت على الارض.

11 في سنة ست مئة من حياة نوح في الشهر الثاني في اليوم السابع عشر من الشهر في ذلك اليوم انفجرت كل ينابيع الغمر العظيم وانفتحت طاقات السماء.

12 وكان المطر على الارض اربعين يوما واربعين ليلة.

13 في ذلك اليوم عينه دخل نوح وسام وحام ويافث بنو نوح وامرأة نوح وثلث نساء بنيه معهم الى الفلك.

14 هم وكل الوحوش كاجناسها وكل البهائم كاجناسها وكل الدبابات التي تدب على الارض كاجناسها وكل الطيور كاجناسها كل عصفور كل ذي جناح.

15 ودخلت الى نوح الى الفلك اثنين اثنين من كل جسد فيه روح حياة.

16 والداخلات دخلت ذكرا وانثى من كل ذي جسد كما امره الله. واغلق الرب عليه

17 وكان الطوفان اربعين يوما على الارض. وتكاثرت المياه ورفعت الفلك. فارتفع عن الارض.

18 وتعاظمت المياه وتكاثرت جدا على الارض. فكان الفلك يسير على وجه المياه.

19 وتعاظمت المياه كثيرا جدا على الارض. فتغطت جميع الجبال الشامخة التي تحت كل السماء.

20 خمس عشرة ذراعا في الارتفاع تعاظمت المياه. فتغطت الجبال.

21 فمات كل ذي جسد كان يدبّ على الارض. من الطيور والبهائم والوحوش وكل الزحّافات التي كانت تزحف على الارض وجميع الناس.

22 كل ما في انفه نسمة روح حياة من كل ما في اليابسة مات.

23 فمحا الله كل قائم كان على وجه الارض. الناس والبهائم والدبّابات وطيور السماء. فانمحت من الارض. وتبقّى نوح والذين معه في الفلك فقط.

24 وتعاظمت المياه على الارض مئة وخمسين يوما

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 7      

By Rev. George McCurdy

In Genesis 7:1-24, the literal text is the heart of the Noah and the Ark story. Noah and his family go into the ark, and bring animals with them, two by two. The flood comes, and the world is drowned, but the ark is safe, floating on the flood.

In the internal sense, the flood signifies the destruction of the "Most Ancient Church" - a stage in human development that was - at first - characterized by a simple monotheism, and an innocence, and a high degree of spiritual awareness. That's what Adam and Eve symbolize at first, but the stories of "the fall", and then Cain and Abel, and then their descendants, are the stories of the gradual but pervasive corruption of the spirituality of that time. A flood of water - representing a tide of evil and falsity - destroys that corrupted church, but the Lord preserves the remnants of good and truth that still exist (Noah, his family, and the selected animals), to provide for the beginning of a new church. That's what is meant by the ark and its preservation.
