Cumque vidisset Deus terram esse corruptarn omnis
quippe caro corruperat viam suam super terram
Fac tibi arcam de lignis levigatis mansiuculas
in arca facies et bitumine linies intrinsecus et extrinsecus
:corrupta est autem terra coram Deo...
Et ex cunctis animantibus universae carnis bina
Induces in arcam ut vivant tecum:
"Thy servants are we,
our lord who sits up high,
Thy rod and thy staff,
shall comfort and guide our hands"
And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was
corrupt; for all flesh
had corrupted his way upon the earth.
"Make Thee an ark of gopher wood;
rooms shalt thou make in the ark,
and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch"
...The earth was corrupt before God.
"Of every living thing of all flesh,
two of every sort shalt thou bring
into the ark to keep them alive with thee"
