Help!. I have lost my mind!.
Could someone please explain why the animals and
Noah went into the ark twice?
Bareshyith 7:8-9 , & 14-15. I have
read several translations and they all do the same thing.
Noah and the animals enter the ark, it rains 40 days
and nights then they enter it again and it rains again.
Help please
I can't find any explanation

Maybe if they were following chapters, as in Bareshyith 1 & 2
genesis account, but not in verses repeating one another.
Are they in the Dead Sea Scrolls?

Chapter 7 is not extant in the DSS. It just seems to be repeating itself.

God said gather the animals into the ark because in 7 days I will flood the area. Noah gathered the animals into the ark. On the 7th day the flood came and it was on that day that Noah brought the animals into the ark.

So it seems it tells us he did it and then tells us exactly when he did it. So i think the only reason for repeating it was to tell us exactly when he did what he did, the 7th day. And we all know the significance of 7 so it is no surprise that Yah would make it clear that it happened on the 7th day.
Don't take my word for it, Look it up.

Thankx cgb2 and James. I have gone over this chapter
again several times. Cgb2 , there are many more details.
James, the time is much more prevalent, down to the
exact day. I still think something is either wrong or missing.
Sorry . Thankx for your insights.

Don't know what .docx is. The other ones I uploaded were .zip
I noticed Flintface uploaded .pdf. Ive tried .zip and .pdf, neither
works. Get serious error. Tried .odt to see if it would work and
got .odt are not allowed message. I'm not doing anything different
than I did for the others. Can't figure it out. Maybe "upload" doesn't
like the Psalms.

If the the great flood were regional, then by implication, there were many people left living who did not possess a neshamah?
