Easter Vigil

Ark van Noach op de zondvloed (Henk van der Molen, © Henk van der Molen)
Gen 7:17-20

The flood continued upon the earth for forty days. As the waters increased, they lifted the ark, so that it rose above the earth. The swelling waters increased greatly, but the ark floated on the surface of the waters. Higher and higher above the earth rose the waters, until all the highest mountains everywhere were submerged, the crest rising fifteen cubits higher than the submerged mountains.
