Genesis Chapter 7

[1] 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.

[2] 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.

[3] Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

[4] 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."

Keeps the bunting tossers busy.

I used to have a selection of biblical quotations that could be used for unofficial communications, however (other than "Jesus wept") they were all too obscure and/or too subtle to achieve regular use.

It is obvious you do not read your bible on a daily basis

Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned?
Proverbs, 6. 27

Translated. If you go for a curry you will get the shits.

The borrower is servant to the lender.
Proverbs, 22. 7

Translated. Never borrow money from the bank!!
