After Cain had killed Abel, God gave Adam and Eve more children.  And they had children too. But they also became wicked.


At last Noah was the only just man.


So God told Noah to build an ark of wood because He was going to bring a flood of water upon the earth to destroy all living things.  God also told Noah that he should be saved from the flood, and his wife, and his three sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, and their wives, by the ark.


After a long time the ark was ready.


Then God told Noah to take with him into the ark two of every living thing, of birds, animals and all creeping things, and to take food of every kind to keep them alive.


So Noah did all that God told him.  And Noah went into the ark, and God shut them in.


The same day God sent a great rain, and it rained until the high hills were covered by the flood, but the ark floated safely on the water.


And everything that had breath died, and Noah only was kept alive and those that were with him in the ark.
