Genesis 6:13-15 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

13 So God said to Noah, “Everyone has filled the earth with anger and violence. So I will destroy all living things. I will remove them from the earth. 14 Use cypress wood[a] and build a boat for yourself. Make rooms in the boat and cover it with tar inside and out.

15 “This is the size I want you to make the boat: 300 cubits[b] long, 50 cubits[c] wide, and 30 cubits[d] high.
