Genesis 7:15-17 Living Bible (TLB)
14-15 With them in the boat were pairs of every kind of animal—domestic and wild—and reptiles and birds of every sort. 16 Two by two they came, male and female, just as God had commanded. Then the Lord God[a] closed the door and shut them in.
17 For forty days the roaring floods prevailed, covering the ground and lifting the boat high above the earth.
