Noah’s Time on the Ark

Genesis 7:11
In the 600th year of Noah’s life, in the 2nd month, on the 17th day of the month

Genesis 7:13 Noah entered that selfsame day

Genesis 7:12 The rain was upon the earth 40 days and 40 nights.

Genesis 7:19 …All the high hills, that were under the heaven, were covered

Genesis 7:24 The waters prevailed 150 days.

Genesis 8:3 After the 150 days, the waters were abated (began to decrease in amount).

Genesis 8:5 On the 10th month, the 1st day, the tops of the mountains could be seen.

Genesis 8:6-7 After 40 more days, Noah opened the window and sent forth a raven which did not return…

Genesis 8:8 And a dove which returned to the ark

Genesis 8:10-11 Seven days later, Noah sent the dove again. This time it brought back an olive branch. This branch showed that sturdy plants had already begun to grow in the heights of the mountains.

Genesis 8:12 Seven days after that, Noah sent the dove again and it did not return.

Genesis 8:13 In the 1st month of the next year, on the 1st day, Noah removed the covering of the ark. The face of the ground was dry.

Genesis 8:14-17 In the 2nd month, on the 27th day, the earth was dry. God told Noah to “go forth out of the ark.”

Noah and his family were in the ark one year and ten days. (This is probably based on a solar calendar instead of a lunar calendar, but most Bible scholars agree that it would have been between 371 and 376 days.)

Genesis 8:18-19 Noah, his family and the animals leave the ark.

Genesis 8:20 Noah offers a sacrifice.

Genesis 8:21-22 God resolves to never destroy the world by flood again.

Vs. 22 “while the earth remaineth” The earth will not always remain. There will be a time when the earth will be destroyed.
Psalm 102:25-26 (quoted in Hebrews 1:10-12) followed by a promise to believers Psalm 102:27-28
2 Peter 3:10
Revelation 21:1 (also speaks of a new earth, as does 2 Peter 3:13)

Source of the flood: The fountains of the great deep were broken up and the windows of heaven were open. Genesis 7:11

References to the flood in the Old Testament and the New Testament:
Genesis 6-8
Genesis 9:11,28
Genesis 10:1,32
Matthew 24:38-39 Jesus is speaking. The flood is linked to the judgment at the second coming of the Lord. In Noah’s day, there was eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage up until the day that Noah entered the ark – until the day that the rains began. (parallel verse: Luke 17:27)
2 Peter 2:5
2 Peter 3:5-6 (This whole chapter is great!) In the last days, scoffers will be willingly ignorant. Of what? Of creation and the flood.
