The Flood

The Lord told Noah:

Take your whole family with you into the boat, because you are the only one on this earth who pleases me. Take seven pairs of every kind of animal that can be used for sacrifice[a] and one pair of all others. Also take seven pairs of every kind of bird with you. Do this so there will always be animals and birds on the earth.
