Genesis 6: 15 KJV, “And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits.” (A cubit is the distance from the inside of the elbow to the tip of the fingers, usually thought of to be 18 inches).
