The Flood Account

The Flood account in the Bible is a story found in the book of Genesis, which describes a catastrophic flood that covered the entire earth and destroyed all living creatures, except those that were on the Ark that Noah built at God's command.

According to the account, God saw that the world had become corrupted and filled with violence, and so he decided to send a flood to cleanse the earth. He chose Noah, a righteous man, to build an Ark and gather two of every kind of animal, along with his family, to be saved from the flood.

The rain fell for forty days and forty nights, and the waters rose until they covered the highest mountains. After the flood had receded, the Ark came to rest on the top of Mount Ararat, and Noah and his family emerged, along with the animals.
The Flood account in the Bible is often interpreted as a symbol of God's judgment on sin and a warning to humanity to repent and turn to God. It is also seen as a story of hope and salvation, as Noah and his family were saved through their obedience to God's commands.
