← Genesis 6   Genesis 8 →

1 RAB Nuha, ‹‹Bütün ailenle birlikte gemiye bin›› dedi, ‹‹Çünkü bu kuşak içinde yalnız seni doğru buldum.

2-3 Yeryüzünde soyları tükenmesin diye, yanına temiz sayılan hayvanlardan erkek ve dişi olmak üzere yedişer çift, kirli sayılan hayvanlardan birer çift, kuşlardan yedişer çift al.

4 Çünkü yedi gün sonra yeryüzüne kırk gün kırk gece yağmur yağdıracağım. Yarattığım her canlıyı yeryüzünden silip atacağım.››

5 Nuh RABbin bütün buyruklarını yerine getirdi.

6 Yeryüzünde tufan koptuğunda Nuh altı yüz yaşındaydı.

7 Nuh, oğulları, karısı, gelinleri tufandan kurtulmak için hep birlikte gemiye bindiler.

8-9 Tanrının Nuha buyurduğu gibi temiz ve kirli sayılan her tür hayvan, kuş ve sürüngenden erkek ve dişi olmak üzere birer çift Nuha gelip gemiye bindiler.

10 Yedi gün sonra tufan koptu.

11 Nuh altı yüz yaşındayken, o yılın ikinci ayının on yedinci günü enginlerin bütün kaynakları fışkırdı, göklerin kapakları açıldı.

12 Yeryüzüne kırk gün kırk gece yağmur yağdı.

13 Nuh, oğulları Sam, Ham, Yafet, Nuhun karısıyla üç gelini tam o gün gemiye bindiler.

14 Onlarla birlikte her tür hayvan -evcil hayvanların, sürüngenlerin, kuşların, uçan yaratıkların her türü- gemiye bindi.

15 Soluk alan her tür canlı çifter çifter Nuhun yanına gelip gemiye bindi.

16 Gemiye giren hayvanlar Tanrının Nuha buyurduğu gibi erkek ve dişiydi. RAB Nuhun ardından kapıyı kapadı.

17 Tufan kırk gün sürdü. Çoğalan sular gemiyi yerden yukarı kaldırdı.

18 Sular yükseldi, çoğaldıkça çoğaldı; gemi suyun üzerinde yüzmeye başladı.

19 Sular öyle yükseldi ki, yeryüzündeki bütün yüksek dağlar su altında kaldı.

20 Yükselen sular dağları on beş arşın aştı.

21-22 Yeryüzünde yaşayan bütün canlılar yok oldu; kuşlar, evcil ve yabanıl hayvanlar, sürüngenler, insanlar, soluk alan bütün canlılar öldü.

23 RAB insanlardan evcil hayvanlara, sürüngenlerden kuşlara dek bütün canlıları yok etti, yeryüzündeki her şey silinip gitti. Yalnız Nuhla gemidekiler kaldı.

24 Sular yüz elli gün boyunca yeryüzünü kapladı.

Exploring the Meaning of Genesis 7      

By 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. 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.
