“And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me…But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark.” —Genesis 6:13,18
“Noah heeded God’s command to build an ark, that he and his family might be spared destruction. He followed God’s instructions to gather into the ark two of every living creature, that they also might be saved from the floodwaters. Noah had the unwavering faith to follow God’s commandments. May we ever do likewise.” —Thomas S. Monson
