Genesis Chapter 7  And the LORD said unto Noah, "Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.  Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.  Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.  For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth." [5Jack] and Noah turning to his sons, said unto them: "D'ye hear there! Hands to harbour stations; special sea dutymen close up, assume NBCD state 3 Condition Yankee; close all screen doors and hatches, hands out of rig of the day, clear off the upper deck."
