Full bible text

Genesis 7:17-18, 24 
17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 
18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 
24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
1 Peter 3:20-21  
20 to those who were disobedient long ago when God waited patiently in the days of Noah while the ark was being built. In it only a few people, eight in all, were saved through water, 
21 and this water symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, 22 who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.
