22  all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, whatsoever was in the dry land, died.

23  And he wiped away all substance that was upon the earth, from man to animal, the crawling things just as much as the flying things of the air. And they were wiped away from the earth. But only Noah remained, and those who were with him in the ark.
