Adam and Eve had children, and their children had children, until the Earth was filled with people. But, just like Adam and Eve, these people disobeyed God and didn’t live at peace with him. They were separated from him. The earth was so full of chaos and misery that God was sad that he had created them, so he decided to destroy all the people and animals that he had made by sending a flood. But there was one man, Noah, who had a good relationship with God, and God was pleased with him.
God told Noah to build a boat so that his family would be saved from the flood. God told him exactly how He wanted the boat to be built, and Noah built it just as God told him to. When the boat was finished, God told Noah to gather his family, two of every kind of animal, and enough food for the animals and his family. Then God sent the flood. It rained for forty days. All of the living things on the earth died, but Noah, his family, and the animals on the boat survived. After the rain stopped, the water began to go down slowly. After some time, Noah sent a dove out of the boat, and when it returned it had an olive branch in its beak, so Noah knew that the land was dry enough for him and his family to leave the boat.
When Noah left the boat, he worshipped God. God was pleased with Noah’s worship, and he promised to never again destroy the earth with a flood. He put a rainbow in the sky as a reminder of His promise to Noah and his descendants. God blessed Noah and his family, and he told them to have many children and fill the earth with people.
