The Book of Jasher
|VI:1. At that time, after the death of Methuselah, Yehuveh said to Noah, Go thou with thy
household into the ark; behold I will gather to thee all the animals of the earth, the beasts
of the field and the fowls of the air, and they shall all come and surround the ark.
VI:2. And thou shalt go and seat thyself by the doors of the ark, and all the beasts, the animals,
and the fowls, shall assemble and place themselves before thee, and such of them as shall
come and crouch before thee, shalt thou take and deliver into the hands of thy sons, who
shall bring them to the ark, and all that will stand before thee thou shalt leave.
VI:3. And Yehuveh brought this about on the next day, and animals, beasts, and fowls came in
great multitudes and surrounded the ark.
VI:4. And Noah went and seated himself by the door of the ark, and all of flesh that crouched
before him, he brought into the ark, and all that stood before him he left upon earth.
VI:5. And a lioness came, with her two whelps, male and female, and the three crouched before
Noah, and the two whelps rose up against the lioness and smote her, and made her flee from
her place, and she went away, and they returned to their places, and crouched upon the earth
VI:6. And the lioness ran away, and stood in the place of the lions.
VI:7. And Noah saw this, and wondered greatly, and he rose and took the two whelps, and brought
them into the ark.
VI:8. And Noah brought into the ark from all living creatures that were upon earth, so that there
was none left but which Noah brought into the ark.
VI:9. Two and two came to Noah into the ark, but from the clean animals, and clean fowls, he
brought seven couples, as Elohim had commanded him.
VI:10. And all the animals, and beasts, and fowls, were still there, and they surrounded the ark
at every place, and the rain had not descended till seven days after.
