1 И сказал Господь Ною: войди ты и все семейство твое в ковчег, иботебя увидел Я праведным предо Мною в роде сем;

2 и всякого скота чистого возьми по семи, мужеского пола и женского,а из скота нечистого по два, мужеского пола и женского;

3 также и из птиц небесных по семи, мужеского пола и женского, чтобы сохранить племя для всей земли,

4 ибо чрез семь дней Я буду изливать дождь на землю сорок дней и сорок ночей; и истреблю все существующее, что Я создал, с лица земли.

5 Ной сделал все, что Господь повелел ему.

6 Ной же был шестисот лет, как потоп водный пришел на землю.

7 И вошел Ной и сыновья его, и жена его, и жены сынов его с ним в ковчег от вод потопа.

8 И из скотов чистых и из скотов нечистых, и из всех пресмыкающихся по земле

9 по паре, мужеского пола и женского, вошли к Ною в ковчег, как Бог повелел Ною.

10 Чрез семь дней воды потопа пришли на землю.

11 В шестисотый год жизни Ноевой, во второй месяц, в семнадцатый день месяца, в сей день разверзлись все источники великой бездны, и окна небесные отворились;

12 и лился на землю дождь сорок дней и сорок ночей.

13 В сей самый день вошел в ковчег Ной, и Сим, Хам и Иафет, сыновья Ноевы, и жена Ноева, и три жены сынов его с ними.

14 Они, и все звери по роду их, и всякий скот по роду его, и все гады, пресмыкающиеся по земле, по роду их, и все летающие по роду их, все птицы, все крылатые,

15 и вошли к Ною в ковчег по паре от всякой плоти, в которой есть дух жизни;

16 и вошедшие мужеский и женский пол всякой плоти вошли, как повелел ему Бог. И затворил Господь за ним.

17 И продолжалось на земле наводнение сорок дней, и умножилась вода, и подняла ковчег, и он возвысился над землею;

18 вода же усиливалась и весьма умножалась на земле, и ковчег плавал по поверхности вод.

19 И усилилась вода на земле чрезвычайно, так что покрылись все высокие горы, какие есть под всем небом;

20 на пятнадцать локтей поднялась над ними вода, и покрылись горы.

21 И лишилась жизни всякая плоть, движущаяся по земле, и птицы, и скоты, и звери, и все гады, ползающие по земле, и все люди;

22 все, что имело дыхание духа жизни в ноздрях своих на суше, умерло.

23 Истребилось всякое существо, которое было на поверхности земли; от человека до скота, и гадов, и птиц небесных, – все истребилось с земли, остался только Ной и что было с ним в ковчеге.

24 Вода же усиливалась на земле сто пятьдесят дней.

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.
