GENESIS 7:3  Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep  seed alive upon the face of all the earth.

GENESIS 7:14  They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their  kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his  kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

GENESIS 7:15  And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh,  wherein is the breath of life.

GENESIS 7:16  And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God  had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.

GENESIS 7:17  And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters  increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth.

GENESIS 7:18  And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth;  and the ark went upon the face of the waters.

GENESIS 7:19  And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high  hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.

GENESIS 7:20  Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were  covered.

GENESIS 7:21  And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of  cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the  earth, and every man:

GENESIS 7:22  All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the  dry land, died.

GENESIS 7:23  And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face  of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl  of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained  alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

GENESIS 7:24  And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
