Paraphrased - When Noah was more than 600 years old, the rain waters came down heavily. It rained for 40 days and nights. Noah, his wife, three sons (Ham, Shem, and Japheth) and their wives entered the ark. 2 of each beast, livestock, creeping thing, bird, winged creature, male and female, each went into the ark as God commanded. And the Lord shut them in.
17 The flood continued forty days on the earth. The waters increased and bore up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the face of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed so mightily on the earth that all the high mountains under the whole heaven were covered.20 The waters prevailed above the mountains, covering them fifteen cubits deep. 21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth, birds, livestock, beasts, all swarming creatures that swarm on the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on the dry land in whose nostrils was the breath of life died. 23 He blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark.24 And the waters prevailed on the earth 150 days.
Wow! If these passages don't give you reverence (meaning great fear) for God, then I'm not sure what will.
Remember what Matthew Henry said about Christ being like the ark. Anyone outside the ark was subject to God's judgement. It was unescapable. It will be the same for anyone outside of Christ.
