NIV - Genesis 7:11-24

The Flood

11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. 12 And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights. 13 On that very day Noah and his sons, Shem, Ham and Japheth, together with his wife and the wives of his three sons, entered the ark. 14 They had with them every wild animal according to its kind, all livestock according to their kinds, every creature that moves along the ground according to its kind and every bird according to its kind, everything with wings. 15 Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark. 16 The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah. Then the LORD shut him in. 17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than twenty feet. 21 Every living thing that moved on the earth perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and the entire mankind. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; human beings and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. 24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

O Dilúvio

11 No dia em que Noé completou seiscentos anos, um mês e dezessete dias, nesse mesmo dia todas as fontes das grandes profundezas jorraram, e as comportas do céu se abriram. 12 E a chuva caiu sobre a terra quarenta dias e quarenta noites. 13 Naquele mesmo dia, Noé e seus filhos, Sem, Cam e Jafé, com sua mulher e com as mulheres de seus três filhos, entraram na arca. 14 Com eles entraram todos os animais de acordo com as suas espécies: todos os animais selvagens, todos os rebanhos domésticos, todos os demais seres vivos que se movem rente ao chão e todas as criaturas que têm asas: todas as aves e todos os outros animais que voam. 15 Casais de todas as criaturas que tinham fôlego de vida vieram a Noé e entraram na arca. 16 Os animais que entraram foram um macho e uma fêmea de cada ser vivo, conforme Deus ordenara a Noé. Então o SENHOR fechou a porta. 17 Quarenta dias durou o Dilúvio, e as águas aumentaram e elevaram a arca acima da terra. 18 As águas prevaleceram, aumentando muito sobre a terra, e a arca flutuava na superfície das águas. 19 As águas dominavam cada vez mais a terra, e foram cobertas todas as altas montanhas debaixo do céu. 20 As águas subiram até quase sete metrosd acima das montanhas. 21 Todos os seres vivos que se movem sobre a terra pereceram: aves, rebanhos domésticos, animais selvagens, todas as pequenas criaturas que povoam a terra e toda a humanidade. 22 Tudo o que havia em terra seca e tinha nas narinas o fôlego de vida morreu. 23 Todos os seres vivos foram exterminados da face da terra; tanto os homens, como os animais grandes, os animais pequenos que se movem rente ao chão e as aves do céu foram exterminados da terra. Só restaram Noé e aqueles que com ele estavam na arca.
