A flood myth or deluge myth is a narrative in which a great flood, usually sent by a deity or deities, destroys civilization, often in an act of divine retribution. Parallels are often drawn between the flood waters of these myths and the primaeval waters found in certain creation myths, as the flood waters are described as a measure for the cleansing of humanity, in preparation for rebirth. Most flood myths also contain a culture hero, who "represents the human craving for life".
A great flood is one of the most common elements in most mythologies. Floods appear in several variations across many quite different mythologies, and are a popular subject for depiction in European and non-European paintings. The flood then subsided and the earth was repopulated by the survivors from the Ark, and God made a covenant that the earth would never be flooded again in this way, and the rainbow would serve as the marker of that covenant. Prometheus warned his son, Deucalion, who was the ruler of Phthia, that a flood was coming, and to build a chest to contain provisions. The flood came, and only Deucalion and his wife Pyrrha survived.

The flood waters overwhelmed the earth up to the tallest mountains. Everything in which the breath of the force of life was active in its nostrils died. but there were survivors. No doubt God cares about his animal creation and took measures to ensure for them a safe haven before the flood waters would devastate the planet. He appointed Noah to oversee there safety and well being. Under God’s instructions Noah and his family were to take into the ark wild beasts, domestic animals, flying creatures and birds, two each (male and female) of the unclean kind, and seven each of the clean kind.
