Updated: Dec 4, 2023

Gen. 8; 9:1-17

Full Lesson HERE

INTRODUCTION. Noah built an ark according to God's instructions. When it was completed after one hundred twenty years, Noah and his family entered the ark along with the animals, and God shut them in.

After seven days it began to rain. From the beginning, "the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth ... but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground" (Gen. 2:6-7). This may have been the first time the inhabitants of the earth had seen rain. For forty days and forty nights the rain continued, while the fountains of the deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. This was more than an ordinary rainstorm, this was a catastrophic event.

The waters increased upon the earth, lifting the ark. Eventually, the waters rose fifteen

cubits upward of the mountains, covering all the high mountains under the whole heaven. For one hundred fifty days the waters prevailed upon the earth. All flesh that moved on the earth died-birds, cattle, beasts, creeping things, and man. Only Noah was left and those with him in the ark.

After one hundred fifty days, the waters decreased. God remembered Noah and all that were in the ark, and four things occurred to cause the waters to recede. A wind passed over the earth, the fountains of the deep were stopped, the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained (Gen. 8:1-3).
