Noah (The Biblical Story) Clearly, the most notable and recognized Noah is from the Book of Genesis 6-9. In the Genesis account, Noah saves his family and representatives of all animals in groups of two or seven from the flood. While the Great Deluge and Noah's Ark are the best-known elements of the Noah tradition, Noah is also mentioned in Genesis as the "first husbandman" and possibly the inventor of wine. The account of Noah is the subject of much elaboration and has been immensely influential in Western culture. Noah was the son of Lamech who named him Noah because he would bring rest from toil on the land which God had cursed (a reference to the curse God placed on the earth following Adam and Eve’s expulsion from Eden). In his five hundredth year Noah had three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. When Noah was six hundred years old, God, saddened at the wickedness of mankind, decided to send a Great Flood to destroy all life. But he saw that Noah was a righteous man, and so He instructed him to build an ark and gather himself and his family with every type of animal, male and female. "Be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it." And as a sign of his covenant, he set the rainbow in the sky.
