||On that very day, Noah boarded the ark along with his sons, Shem, Ham and Yefeth. Noah's wife and the three wives of his sons were with them.
Be'etsem hayom hazeh ba Noach veShem-veCham vaYefet beney-Noach ve'eshet Noach usheloshet neshey-vanav itam el-hatevah.
Literally 'Noah's.' We omit the repetition of the name.
|On that very day|
Or, 'in broad daylight' (Rashi).
