And the waters prevailed so mightily upon the earth that all the high mountains under the
whole heaven were covered; the waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen
cubits deep. And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, birds, cattle, beasts, all
swarming creatures that swarm upon the earth, and every man; everything on the dry land in
whose nostrils was the breath of life died. He blotted out every living thing that was
upon the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the air;
they were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those that were with him in
the ark. And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
