← 1 Mose 6   1 Mose 8 →

1 Und der HERR sprach zu Noah: Gehe in den Kasten, du und dein ganz Haus; denn dich habe ich gerecht ersehen vor mir zu dieser Zeit.

2 Aus allerlei reinem Vieh nimm zu dir je sieben und sieben, das Männlein und sein Fräulein; von dem unreinen Vieh aber je ein Paar, das Männlein und sein Fräulein.

3 Desselbengleichen von den Vögeln unter dem Himmel je sieben und sieben, das Männlein und sein Fräulein, auf daß Same lebendig bleibe auf dem ganzen Erdboden.

4 Denn noch über sieben Tage will ich regnen lassen auf Erden vierzig Tage und vierzig Nächte und vertilgen von dem Erdboden alles, was das Wesen hat, das ich gemacht habe.

5 Und Noah tat alles, was ihm der HERR gebot.

6 Er war aber sechshundert Jahre alt, da das Wasser der Sintflut auf Erden kam.

7 Und er ging in den Kasten mit seinen Söhnen, seinem Weibe und seiner Söhne Weibern vor dem Gewässer der Sintflut.

8 Von dem reinen Vieh und von dem unreinen, von den Vögeln und von allem Gewürm auf Erden

9 gingen zu ihm in den Kasten bei Paaren, je ein Männlein und Fräulein, wie ihm der HERR geboten hatte.

10 Und da die sieben Tage vergangen waren, kam das Gewässer der Sintflut auf Erden.

11 In dem sechshundertsten Jahr des Alters Noah, am siebzehnten Tag des andern Monats, das ist der Tag, da aufbrachen alle Brunnen der großen Tiefe, und taten sich auf die Fenster des Himmels,

12 und kam ein Regen auf Erden, vierzig Tage und vierzig Nächte.

13 Eben am selben Tage ging Noah in den Kasten mit Sem, Ham und Japheth, seinen Söhnen, und mit seinem Weibe und seiner Söhne dreien Weibern;

14 dazu allerlei Tier nach seiner Art, allerlei Vieh nach seiner Art, allerlei Gewürm, das auf Erden kreucht, nach seiner Art und allerlei Vögel nach ihrer Art alles, was fliegen konnte, und alles, was Fittiche hatte.

15 Das ging alles zu Noah in den Kasten bei Paaren, von allem Fleisch, da ein lebendiger Geist innen war

16 und das waren Männlein und Fräulein von allerlei Fleisch und gingen hinein, wie denn Gott ihm geboten hatte. Und der HERR schloß hinter ihm zu.

17 Da kam die Sintflut vierzig Tage auf Erden; und die Wasser wuchsen und huben den Kasten auf und trugen ihn empor über der Erde.

18 Also nahm das Gewässer überhand und wuchs sehr auf Erden, daß der Kasten auf dem Gewässer fuhr.

19 Und das Gewässer nahm überhand und wuchs so sehr auf Erden, daß alle hohen Berge unter dem ganzen Himmel bedeckt wurden.

20 Fünfzehn Ellen hoch ging das Gewässer über die Berge, die bedeckt wurden.

21 Da ging alles Fleisch unter, das auf Erden kreucht, an Vögeln, an Vieh, an Tieren und an allem, das sich reget auf Erden, und an allen Menschen.

22 Alles, was einen lebendigen Odem hatte im Trocknen, das starb.

23 Also ward vertilget alles, was auf dem Erdboden war, vom Menschen an bis auf das Vieh und auf das Gewürm und auf die Vögel unter dem Himmel: das ward alles von der Erde vertilget. Allein Noah blieb über, und was mit ihm in dem Kasten war.

24 Und das Gewässer stund auf Erden hundertundfünfzig Tage.

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.
