And the earth was corrupted before God, and was filled with iniquity.  And when God had seen that the earth was corrupted (for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth,)  He said to Noe:
[INDENT]The end of all flesh is come before Me, the earth is filled with iniquity through them, and **I **will destroy them with the earth.  **Make thee an ark **of timber planks: thou shalt make **little rooms **in[LEFT][/LEFT] the ark, and thou shalt pitch it within and without.  And thus shalt thou make it:
[INDENT]The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits: the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
[INDENT]**DRV Commentary Note: *** Three hundred cubits: The ark, according to the dimensions here set down, contained four hundred and fifty thousand square cubits; which was more than enough to contain all the kinds of living creatures, with all necessary provisions: even supposing the cubits here spoken of to have been only a foot and a half each, which was the least kind of cubits. *
 Thou shalt make a window in the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish the top of it: and the door of the ark thou shalt set in the side: with lower, middle chambers, and third stories shalt thou make it.
 Behold** I** will bring the waters of a great flood upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, under heaven. All things that are in the earth shall be consumed.
 And** I **will establish My covenant with thee, and thou shalt enter into the ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife, and the wives of thy sons with thee.  And of every living creature of all flesh, thou shalt bring two of a sort into the ark, that they may live with thee: of the male sex, and the female.  Of fowls according to their kind, and of beasts in their kind, and of every thing that creepeth on the earth according to its kind; two of every sort shall go in with thee, that they may live.
 Thou shalt take unto thee of all food that may be eaten, and thou shalt lay it up with thee: and it shall be food for thee and them. [/INDENT][/INDENT]
 And Noe did all things which God commanded him.
