Chapter 7

"And the Lord said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation." (Genesis 7:1)

<1>Noah was a righteous and perfect man.


"Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female." (Genesis 7:2)

<2>We can see here that God is concerned even for the unclean beasts because their existence is also necessary for creation.  They are a part of the evolutionary process.

<3>From clean animals, seven pairs or fourteen singles were taken, because the new generation also ate meat (Genesis 9:3), so they could be consumed while sheltered, but at least leave two (a male and a female) alive.  <4>Also some extra were necessary for sacrifice after the flood (Genesis 8:20).


"Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth." (Genesis 7:3)

"For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth." (Genesis 7:4)

<5>Therefore, it was necessary for those creatures to be destroyed that had lagged behind in the evolutionary process so much that there was no hope for them to reach the new stage of human existence of the new generation.


"And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him." (Genesis 7:5)

<6>Noah was completely surrendered to the commands of the Father.  Only in this way can you be a devotee of His.


"And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth." (Genesis 7:6)

<7>Noah was the last from the previous generation and lived for a long time.  The new generation would have a shorter lifespan.


"And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood." (Genesis 7:7)

<8>Therefore, Noah saved the new generation by taking them to the ark.


"Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth," (Genesis 7:8)

<9>New generations of animals of every kind were saved also.


"There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah." (Genesis 7:9)

"And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth." (Genesis 7:10)

<10>God never fails in His promises.


"In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened." (Genesis 7:11)

<11>The process of destruction of the old earth started.  "Fountains of the great deep" refer to the ice of the two poles.  Ice on the earth started to melt, and all the clouds rained ("the windows of heaven were opened").


"And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights." (Genesis 7:12)

<12>Again God did as He promised.


"In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;" (Genesis 7:13)

<13>The people that were chosen to create the new generation sheltered themselves from the destruction.


"They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort." (Genesis 7:14)

<14>The animal kingdom was saved also (those needed to create new generations of animals).


"And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life." (Genesis 7:15)

<15>Animals were sheltered also.


"And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in." (Genesis 7:16)

<16>The emphasis of "went in male and female" shows how the male and female are important in the reproduction of flesh and how God supports all being coupled and married.  <17>The sentence "and the Lord shut him in" shows that they all have been saved only by His Grace and under His shelter.


"And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth." (Genesis 7:17)

<18>Noah and the new generation were beyond destruction.


"And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters." (Genesis 7:18)

"And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered." (Genesis 7:19)

<19>The important point is that the old generation was destroyed and replaced by a new one.  <20>Also the destruction appeared to be worldwide to those who were later inspired to report it to their offspring.


"Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered." (Genesis 7:20)

"And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:" (Genesis 7:21)

<21>The old earth (generations) was destroyed.


"All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died." (Genesis 7:22)

<22>Only the creatures on the dry land died, but not animals in the seas or any other waters.


"And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark." (Genesis 7:23)

"And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days." (Genesis 7:24)
