Parsha Noach נֹ֔חַ is the second reading in Bereshit and the annual reading cycle. This parsha contains many familiar stores (1) the building of the ark, (2) the flood, and of course the (3) tower of Babel.
There are several interesting facts concerning the Hebrew text. This parsha can be considered the longest pasha in one way. It has the most sentences (verses) of any Torah portion but it does share this honor with parsha Vayishlach (Bereshit 32:4-36:43). More amazingly it does not contain the most letters. That honor belongs to parsha Miketz (Bereshit 41:1-44:17). Parsha Vayeira (Exodus Shemot 6:2-9:35) has the most words.
Noach נֹ֔חַ is the third word and the first distinctive word in the Hebrew text (see text below).

Gen 6:14 Make thee an ark of gopher wood; with rooms shalt thou make the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch.
Gen 6:15 And this is how thou shalt make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.
Gen 6:16 A light shalt thou make to the ark, and to a cubit shalt thou finish it upward; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it.
Gen 6:17 And I, behold, I do bring the flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; every thing that is in the earth shall perish.

Gen 7:12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
Gen 7:13 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;

Gen 7:15 And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life.

Gen 7:23 And He blotted out every living substance which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping thing, and fowl of the heaven; and they were blotted out from the earth; and Noah only was left, and they that were with him in the ark.
Gen 7:24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days.
Gen 8:1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;
Gen 8:2 the fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.
Gen 8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually; and after the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters decreased.
Gen 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
Gen 8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
Gen 8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made.
Gen 8:7 And he sent forth a raven, and it went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
Gen 8:8 And he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground.
Gen 8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him to the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth; and he put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her in unto him into the ark.
Gen 8:10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark.
Gen 8:11 And the dove came in to him at eventide; and lo in her mouth an olive-leaf freshly plucked; so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
Gen 8:12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; and she returned not again unto him any more.
Gen 8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dried.

Gen 8:16 ‘Go forth from the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.
Gen 8:17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee of all flesh, both fowl, and cattle, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may swarm in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.’
Gen 8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him;
Gen 8:19 every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, whatsoever moveth upon the earth, after their families; went forth out of the ark.
Gen 8:20 And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt-offerings on the altar.
Gen 8:21 And the LORD smelled the sweet savour; and the LORD said in His heart: ‘I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.’
Gen 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them: ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth.
Gen 9:2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, and upon all wherewith the ground teemeth, and upon all the fishes of the sea: into your hand are they delivered.
Gen 9:3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be for food for you; as the green herb have I given you all.
Gen 9:4 Only flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
Gen 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it; and at the hand of man, even at the hand of every man’s brother, will I require the life of man.
Gen 9:6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed; for in the image of God made He man.
Gen 9:7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; swarm in the earth, and multiply therein.’
Gen 9:8 And God spoke unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying:
Gen 9:9 ‘As for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
Gen 9:10 and with every living creature that is with you, the fowl, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you; of all that go out of the ark, even every beast of the earth.
Gen 9:11 And I will establish My covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.’
Gen 9:12 And God said: ‘This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
Gen 9:13 I have set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth.
Gen 9:14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring clouds over the earth, and the bow is seen in the cloud,
Gen 9:15 that I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
Gen 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.’
Gen 9:17 And God said unto Noah: ‘This is the token of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth.’
Gen 9:18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth from the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth; and Ham is the father of Canaan.
Gen 9:19 These three were the sons of Noah, and of these was the whole earth overspread.
Gen 9:20 And Noah the husbandman began, and planted a vineyard.
Gen 9:21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
Gen 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
Gen 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
Gen 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his youngest son had done unto him.
Gen 9:25 And he said: Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
Gen 9:26 And he said: Blessed be the LORD, the God of Shem; and let Canaan be their servant.
Gen 9:27 God enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and let Canaan be their servant.

Gen 10:10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.
Gen 10:11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and Rehoboth-ir, and Calah,
Gen 10:12 and Resen between Nineveh and Calah – the same is the great city.
Gen 10:13 And Mizraim begot Ludim, and Anamim, and Lehabim, and Naphtuhim,
Gen 10:14 and Pathrusim, and Casluhim – whence went forth the Philistines – and Caphtorim.
Gen 10:15 And Canaan begot Zidon his firstborn, and Heth;
Gen 10:16 and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgashite;
Gen 10:17 and the Hivite, and the Arkite, and the Sinite;
Gen 10:18 and the Arvadite, and the Zemarite, and the Hamathite; and afterward were the families of the Canaanite spread abroad.
Gen 10:19 And the border of the Canaanite was from Zidon, as thou goest toward Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest toward Sodom and Gomorrah and Admah and Zeboiim, unto Lasha.
Gen 10:20 These are the sons of Ham, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, in their nations.
Gen 10:21 And unto Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the elder brother of Japheth, to him also were children born.
Gen 10:22 The sons of Shem: Elam, and Asshur, and Arpachshad, and Lud, and Aram.
Gen 10:23 And the sons of Aram: Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash.
Gen 10:24 And Arpachshad begot Shelah; and Shelah begot Eber.
Gen 10:25 And unto Eber were born two sons; the name of the one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.

Gen 10:27 and Hadoram, and Uzal, and Diklah;
Gen 10:28 and Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba;

Gen 10:31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations.
Gen 10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations; and of these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
Gen 11:1 And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech.
Gen 11:2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.
Gen 11:3 And they said one to another: ‘Come, let us make brick, and burn them thoroughly.’ And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar.
Gen 11:4 And they said: ‘Come, let us build us a city, and a tower, with its top in heaven, and let us make us a name; lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.’
Gen 11:5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
Gen 11:6 And the LORD said: ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do; and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do.
Gen 11:7 Come, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.’
Gen 11:8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth; and they left off to build the city.
Gen 11:9 Therefore was the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth; and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.
Gen 11:10 These are the generations of Shem. Shem was a hundred years old, and begot Arpachshad two years after the flood.

Gen 11:19 And Peleg lived after he begot Reu two hundred and nine years, and begot sons and daughters.
Gen 11:20 And Reu lived two and thirty years, and begot Serug.
Gen 11:21 And Reu lived after he begot Serug two hundred and seven years, and begot sons and daughters.
Gen 11:22 And Serug lived thirty years, and begot Nahor.
Gen 11:23 And Serug lived after he begot Nahor two hundred years, and begot sons and daughters.

Gen 11:30 And Sarai was barren; she had no child.
Gen 11:31 And Terah took Abram his son, and Lot the son of Haran, his son’s son, and Sarai his daughter-in-law, his son Abram’s wife; and they went forth with them from Ur of the Chaldees, to go into the land of Canaan; and they came unto Haran, and dwelt there.
Gen 11:32 And the days of Terah were two hundred and five years; and Terah died in Haran.
Isa 42:5 Thus saith God the LORD, He that created the heavens, and stretched them forth, He that spread forth the earth and that which cometh out of it, He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
Isa 42:6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and have taken hold of thy hand, and kept thee, and set thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations;
Isa 42:7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.
Isa 42:8 I am the LORD, that is My name; and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.
Isa 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
Sing to the Lord a New Song
Isa 42:10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth; ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
Isa 42:11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit; let the inhabitants of Sela exult, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
Isa 42:12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare His praise in the islands.
Isa 42:13 The LORD will go forth as a mighty man, He will stir up jealousy like a man of war; He will cry, yea, He will shout aloud, He will prove Himself mighty against His enemies.
Isa 42:14 I have long time held My peace, I have been still, and refrained Myself; now will I cry like a travailing woman, gasping and panting at once.
Isa 42:15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and will dry up the pools.
Isa 42:16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, in paths that they knew not will I lead them; I will make darkness light before them, and rugged places plain. These things will I do, and I will not leave them undone.
Isa 42:17 They shall be turned back, greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say unto molten images: ‘Ye are our gods.’
Israel’s Failure to Hear and See
Isa 42:18 Hear, ye deaf, and look, ye blind, that ye may see.
Isa 42:19 Who is blind, but My servant? Or deaf, as My messenger that I send? Who is blind as he that is wholehearted, and blind as the LORD’S servant?
Isa 42:20 Seeing many things, thou observest not; opening the ears, he heareth not.
Isa 42:21 The LORD was pleased, for His righteousness’ sake, to make the teaching great and glorious.
Isa 42:22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled, they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison-houses; they are for a prey, and none delivereth, for a spoil, and none saith: ‘Restore.’
Isa 42:23 Who among you will give ear to this? Who will hearken and hear for the time to come?
Isa 42:24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? Did not the LORD? He against whom we have sinned, and in whose ways they would not walk, neither were they obedient unto His law.
Isa 42:25 Therefore He poured upon him the fury of His anger, and the strength of battle; and it set him on fire round about, yet he knew not, and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.
Isa 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel: Fear not, for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art Mine.
Isa 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee, and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee; when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned, neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
Isa 43:3 For I am the LORD thy God, The Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour; I have given Egypt as thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.
Isa 43:4 Since thou art precious in My sight, and honourable, and I have loved thee; therefore will I give men for thee, and peoples for thy life.
Isa 43:5 Fear not, for I am with thee; I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
Isa 43:6 I will say to the north: ‘Give up,’ and to the south: ‘Keep not back, bring My sons from far, and My daughters from the end of the earth;
Isa 43:7 Every one that is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, I have formed him, yea, I have made him.’
Isa 43:8 The blind people that have eyes shall be brought forth, and the deaf that have ears.
Isa 43:9 All the nations are gathered together, and the peoples are assembled; who among them can declare this, and announce to us former things? Let them bring their witnesses, that they may be justified; and let them hear, and say: ‘It is truth.’
Isa 43:10 Ye are My witnesses, saith the LORD, and My servant whom I have chosen; that ye may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He; before Me there was no God formed, neither shall any be after Me.
Mat 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.
Mat 24:37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Mat 24:38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark,
Mat 24:39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Mat 24:40 Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left.
Mat 24:41 Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left.
Mat 24:42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into.
Mat 24:44 Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.
Mat 24:45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time?
Mat 24:46 Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes.
