Noah was a righteous man in a world of iniquity. When he was 600 years of age, he entered the ark he had constructed after the commandment of God with his wife, his three sons Ham, Shem, and Japeth, and their wives, along with a male and female representative of every kind of animal. Only the ark and its inhabitants survived the Great Flood which followed. After the flood, God made the Noahide Covenant, promising never to destroy the world by water again. The covenant allowed meat to be food for man as well as plants, but consuming blood was forbidden. And it demanded the life of any beast or man who takes the life of a man.

The Bible also reports that Noah was a vineyard keeper and a maker (and consumer) of wine.
