In the story of Noah’s Ark in the Book of Genesis, God has come to a decision. Man had strayed far from God’s instruction, and annihilation was the chosen solution to set straight our wayward kind. Noah was known to be a virtuous man, so he and his family were chosen by God to repopulate the Earth in the days succeeding the Great Flood.

God informed Noah of his plan for the flood and instructed him to build an ark for himself, his family, and at least two of every species of animal (one male, one female, and seven pairs of all “clean” animals and birds). After 40 days and 40 nights of rain, and many days of subsequent flooding, God sent a wind over the Earth and the waters receded; Earth could be repopulated.
