According to [[Genesis]], '''Noah''' ([[Hebrew]] '''נוֹחַ'''), the son of  [[Lamech]] was commanded by [[God]] to build an ark to save his family and representatives of all the world's land animals while God destroyed the wicked world with a flood<ref>Gen. 6:6</ref>.
The story of Noah is found in the [[Bible]] in chapters 6 to 9 of [[Genesis]] and he is described as one of the 'Heroes of Faith' in [[Book of Hebrews|Hebrews]] chapter 11.<ref>He is also mentioned in the [[chronogenealogy]] of Genesis 5 and mentioned by Isaiah and Peter.</ref>
== Life ==
God saw that man had become wicked in every inclination and thought and the earth was filled with violence, but Noah alone was righteous. God commanded Noah to build an [[Noah's Ark|ark]] that would have seven (or seven pairs) of every "clean" ([[kosher]]) animal and two of every unclean animal  Noah did as he was told and spent many years building the ark, and God flooded the earth with rain from above and waters from within the earth.  Noah was 600 years old when the flood started.  After the flood waters had subsided, (which lasted almost a year), Noah came out of the Ark.  Noah made sacrifices to God and God formed a new covenant with Noah where he promised never again to flood the earth.  Noah planted a vineyard and drank of the wine until he fell asleep naked in his tent.  [[Ham]], the father of [[Canaan]], saw him and told his two brothers, but left his father as he was.  The two brothers, upon hearing Ham's pronouncement, took a garment and walked backwards into their father's tent and covered his nakedness without looking at him.  When Noah awoke, he cursed Canaan, his grandson, for he "knew what his younger son had done unto him."<REF>Bible, King James Version, Genesis 9: 24,25</REF>.  Noah lived 350 more years before dying.
All people alive today must be descendents of [[Family of Noah|Noah and his family]]:
{{Bible quote|book=Genesis|chap=7|verses=13,23|version=KJV|In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark. ... 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.}}
== Biblical Account and World Flood Myths ==
Proponents of Biblical literalism have pointed out that many cultures have a tradition of a global flood and that the biblical account has many commonalities with the world's flood myths. They have argued that this supports the likelihood of the flood being a real event.<ref>Morris, John, [http://www.icr.org/article/570/ Why Does Nearly Every Culture Have a Tradition of a Global Flood?] (ICR)</ref>
