1 sa Herren til Noah: Gå inn i arken, du og hele ditt hus! For jeg har funnet at du er rettferdig for mitt åsyn i denne slekt.

2 Av alle rene dyr skal du ta dig ut syv par, han og hun, men av de dyr som ikke er rene, ett par, han og hun;

3 likeså av himmelens fugler syv par, han og hun, for å holde deres slekter i live på jorden.

4 For om syv dager vil jeg la det regne på jorden i firti dager og firti netter, og jeg vil utrydde av jorden alt levende som jeg har skapt.

5 Og Noah gjorde i ett og alt som Herren hadde befalt ham.

6 Noah var seks hundre år gammel da vannflommen kom over jorden.

7 Da gikk Noah og hans sønner og hans hustru og hans sønners hustruer med ham inn i arken for å berge sig for vannflommen.

8 Av de rene dyr og av de dyr som ikke er rene, og av fuglene og av alt det som kryper på jorden,

9 gikk par for par inn til Noah i arken, han og hun, således som Gud hadde befalt Noah.

10 Da nu de syv dager var til ende, kom flommens vann strømmende over jorden.

11 I det år da Noah var seks hundre år gammel, i den annen måned, den syttende dag i måneden, den dag brast alle kilder i det store dyp, og himmelens sluser åpnedes,

12 og regnet strømmet ned på jorden i firti dager og firti netter.

13 På denne samme dag gikk Noah og Sem og Kam og Jafet, Noahs sønner, og Noahs hustru og hans sønners tre hustruer med dem inn i arken,

14 de og alle de ville dyr efter sitt slag og alt feet efter sitt slag og alt krypet som rører sig på jorden, efter sitt slag og alle fuglene efter sitt slag, alt som flyver, alt som har vinger.

15 Og de gikk inn til Noah i arken, par for par av alt kjød som det var livsånde i.

16 Og de som gikk inn, var han og hun av alt kjød, således som Gud hadde befalt ham. Og Herren lukket efter ham.

17 Da kom vannflommen strømmende over jorden i firti dager, og vannet vokste og løftet arken, og den blev hevet over jorden.

18 Og vannet steg og øket storlig over jorden; og arken fløt bortover vannflaten.

19 Og vannet steg høiere og høiere over jorden, så alle de høie fjell under hele himmelen blev skjult.

20 Femten alen høit steg vannet over fjellene, så de skjultes.

21 Da omkom alt kjød som rørte sig på jorden, både fuglene og feet og de ville dyr og alt det som yrte og vrimlet på jorden, og alle menneskene.

22 Alt som hadde livsens åndedrag i sin nese, alt det som var på det tørre land, døde.

23 Og han* utryddet hvert liv som var på jorden, både mennesker og fe og kryp og fuglene under himmelen; de blev utryddet av jorden, og bare Noah blev igjen, og det som var med ham i arken. / {* Gud.}

24 Og vannet holdt sig over jorden i hundre og femti dager.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 7      

Napsal(a) Joe David

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. A great 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.

Adam and Eve, in the Garden of Eden, symbolize that initial human spiritual state, before "the fall", when they eat the forbidden fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then, the story of Cain and Abel, and listing the descendants of these people, trace - in the inner meaning - the gradual but pervasive corruption of the spirituality of that church.

In Genesis 7, a flood of water - representing a tide of evil and falsity - destroys that corrupted church. The people of that church effectively destroy their own spiritual lives.

In the Noah story, the Lord preserves the remnants of good and truth that still exist (represented by 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.
