Genesis 6:18–22 (ESV)
Noah and the Flood
I will establish my covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark
to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds according to their kinds, and of the animals according to their kinds, of every creeping thing of the ground, according to its kind, two of every sort
shall come in to you to keep them alive. 21 Also take with you every sort of food that is eaten, and store it up. It shall serve as food for you and for them.” 22 Noah did this; he did
all that God commanded him.
Here is a manifest of who (people wise) will be on the ark. I will count them: 1) Noah 2) Noah’s wife, 3) Shem, 4)
Shem’s wife, 5) Ham, 6) Ham’s wife, 7) Japheth, and 8) Japheth’s wife. Eight people in all. The movie “Noah” blows this big time and is NOT accurate. I’m not a fan of the movie… they need to get
their facts straight. I did not like Disney’s “Pocahontas” either because of inaccuracies. The manifest will also include 2 of every kind (male and female) of all that lives (animals, birds, and creeping things). This
is a list is incomplete. There will be seven pairs of the “clean” animals, but we are not there yet. Also, they need to have food stored for the 8 humans, and all the animals. How much food do you pack? We’ll
get to that later.
I pray: O Lord, help me to follow your commands and walk according to your ways. Help me to listen to you and to act according
to your will. Amen.
