Bible study 7 – Genesis 7Posted: October 9, 2016
God now asks Noah to bring two only of the “unclean” animals, and fourteen of the rest. Noah does this, and it starts raining so heavily that the sea level rises exactly 6.9 metres over Mount Everest (or whatever mountain was the tallest in the world at the time). All non-marine animals die, while the fish are presumably having a party with the added space and corpses of land-animals. Also, this chapter is one of the more obvious examples of a mix of several different texts, since everything is mentioned at least twice.
