Men of the Bible Series: Noah
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. and had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth.
God said to Noah, “I am going to destroy all flesh because the world is full of violence. Build an ark of gopherwood, with rooms inside, three decks, and a door. Cover it inside and out with pitch.” And Noah did exactly as God commanded him (Genesis 6:13–22).
Noah and his sons obeyed God built the ark and every land animal after its kind went with the family into the ark; two by two, male and female, just as God had commanded. And the Lord shut the door. Then the rains came. The fountains of the deep broke open, and the windows of heaven were opened. Rain poured for forty days and forty nights. The waters rose until every high hill on the earth was covered. Everything that lived on land perished in the raging floodwaters (Genesis 7:17–24).
After one hundred and fifty days the waters receded and the Ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat in modern day Turkey (Genesis 8:1–5). The first thing the family did was build an altar worshipping God and offered burnt offerings in gratitude to Him.
And God said, “Never again will I curse the ground because of man or send a flood to destroy all living things, even though mankind’s heart is evil from childhood.” God blessed Noah and his family saying, “Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth.”
