Let’s read about the animals on the ark.

Genesis 6:20  Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves 
along the ground will come to you to be kept alive.

Genesis 7:8-9  Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground,
male and female came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.

Genesis 7:15  Pairs of all creatures that have the breath of life in them came to Noah and entered the ark.

The above scriptures tell us the animals that came to the ark were birds and animals that move along the 
ground.  No water animals.  They can swim in the flood waters.  Also, the above scriptures tell us that Noah did
not have to catch the animals.  The animals came to Noah.  God led the animals to Noah and the ark.

Genesis 7:16  The animals going in were male and female of every living thing, as God had commanded Noah.
Then the Lord shut him in.

This scripture tells us that Noah probably did not close the huge ark door.  God closed the door and shut Noah in.
I am speculating that Noah and his sons could not bear closing the door.  They could not leave man- 
kind behind to die.  God had to close the door for him.

Next week we will continue to study the animals of the ark.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
