(Genesis vi. 15) was about as big as a medium-sized church, that is, from 450 to 500 feet long, from 75 to 85 feet broad, and from 45 to 50 feet high, with one window in the roof. Toy arks represent it with rows of windows on each side, which is incorrect.
A white band spanning the sky like a rainbow; if east and west expect dry weather, if north and south expect wet.
