"I have seen the wickedness of these people so now I will wide them out and start again" said God
"Noah you must create a ark for your family and yourself, you must put one it two of all animals one male and one female, and seven of all clean animals alone with every kind of food for the animals and his family". God Said to Noah
After they had entered the ark, rain fell for a period of forty days and nights. The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days, and every living thing was wiped out.
As the waters receded, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. Noah and his family continued to wait for almost eight more monthswhile the surface of the earth dried out.
Finally, after an entire year, God invited Noah to come out of the ark. Immediately
Noah built an altar and offered burnt sacrifices with some of the clean animals to give thanks to God for deliverance.
