Genesis 7:6-9 (Vespers, 1st reading)
- Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.
- So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
- Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth,
- two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.
