Old Testament Stories for Young Readers


From Genesis 5–9

Noah teaching people

A long time ago, people on earth were making bad choices. God sent a brave prophet named Noah. He told the people that they should repent and love God. Did they listen? No! They kept doing bad things.

Noah’s ark

God told Noah that He would get rid of the bad things on the earth. God told Noah to build a big boat called an ark. Noah gathered his family and animals inside the ark. Then it started to rain.

It rained for 40 days and 40 nights. The whole earth was covered with water! Noah and his family and the animals were safe inside the ark.

Finally the rain stopped. The floodwaters went down. Noah saw a rainbow in the sky. God promised to never flood the whole earth again.

I can be like Noah and listen to Heavenly Father. I know God keeps His promises. I am blessed when I obey His commandments.
