Bonus Reading, Genesis

Noah and the Great Flood  

Today's reading tells of Noah, 600 years young, who was saved from a great flood, along with his family and pairs of every creature on earth.  Having built an ark and collected the animals, the group waited out the rains and flood waters until they could again set foot on dry land.  After this salvation, Noah built an altar and thanked God.

Read Genesis 7:11-8:22  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
