No 893 Steinbach Nutcracker Noah and His Ark


After the creation of the world, God became displeased with the undisciplined life of man and beast on earth. For this reason he made a convenant with Noah, the God-fearing son of Adam. I am going to put an end to man, spoke God. He commanded Noah to build an ark caulked on the inside and outside with pitch with a length of 150 meters, a width of 25 meters and a height of 15 meters 3 stories high on the inside with an entrance door on one side and a roof on top. In so doing, Noah and his family were saved from the flood, which would have destroyed all life. 

God commanded him to take from each kind of animal, a male and female so that these too would be saved along with Noah and his family. Thus, animals large and small and birds, as well for all were brought onto Noah’s ark. 

Soon thereafter it rained 40 days and 40 nights without interruption. Noah was already 600 years old at that time and after this, God wanted to limit man’s lifetime on earth to only 120 years. These things are written in my old bible and somehow there must be something to this story about a deluge. 

All the religions of the world tell of a deluge and there are expeditions today searching in the Middle East for the remains of Noah’s ark. According to tales from the Edda the giant Urmyr (probably the personification of the moon), plunged into the oceans of the earth and caused a catastrophic global flood.
