1 When the word of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 came unto Noaḥ, saying, Take unto thyself Na’amah, the daughter of Lemeḵ who dwelleth here in the city of thy fathers, for she hath been faithful to My Besorah, wherefore, I shall preserve through her the seed of Qayin through the flood, Noaḥ went unto his father, Methushelaḥ.
2 Methushelaḥ inquired of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 and returned this word unto his son Lemeḵ: Verily, thus saith 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, My handmaiden Na’amah have I given unto My son Noaḥ that the seed of Qayin might be preserved through the great flood which I will send upon the earth.
3 Wherefore, let not My son Noaḥ fear to take her to wife, for in so doing he shall be baruḵ for through him will come all nations.
4 Wherefore, say unto him, Noaḥ, My son, I have looked upon the evils of the sons of men which have come up before Me, for they have corrupted the whole earth save only this city in which thou dwellest.
5 Therefore, I will send in the floods upon the earth but thou and thy seed will I preserve through the flood, for I will send My messengers to instruct thee in the building of an ark wherein ye shall be saved.
6 Behold, I shall establish thy seed before Me forever and I will spread them abroad over the earth as numerous as the sand upon the seashore.
7 Thy seed shall not cease as long as the earth shall stand but through thee and thy kehunnah which will be preserved in thy seed shall all nations be baruḵ.
