Two of each kind of bird, cattle, and creeping thing (the "beasts" are also included in Genesis 7:14) were to be put on the ark. Again, marine animals are omitted, as representatives of their kinds could survive outside the ark. Note that the animals were to "come unto thee." God directed to the ark, by a miraculous selection process, those animals who possessed the necessary genes for instincts which would be needed by their survivors in the post-Flood world. Noah did not have to gather the animals himself, but merely opened the ark to the animals God sent.
