Genesis.7.1-16 בראשית
And the LORD said unto Noah: ‘Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation. None Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee seven and seven, each with his mate; and of the beasts that are not clean two [and two], each with his mate; None of the fowl also of the air, seven and seven, male and female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. None For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I blot out from off the face of the earth.’ None And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. None And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. None And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, before the waters of the flood. None Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the ground, None there went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, male and female, as God commanded Noah. None And it came to pass after the seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth. None In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. None And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights. None In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah’s wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark; None they, and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after its kind, and every fowl after its kind, every bird of every sort. None And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh wherein is the breath of life. None And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God commanded him; and the LORD shut him in. None And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bore up the ark, and it was lifted up above the earth. None And the waters prevailed, and increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters. None And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high mountains that were under the whole heaven were covered. None Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered. None And all flesh perished that moved upon the earth, both fowl, and cattle, and beast, and every swarming thing that swarmeth upon the earth, and every man; None all in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, whatsoever was in the dry land, died. None And He blotted out every living substance which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and creeping thing, and fowl of the heaven; and they were blotted out from the earth; and Noah only was left, and they that were with him in the ark. None And the waters prevailed upon the earth a hundred and fifty days. None

A Text's Structure is represented by the hieracrchy of different types of sections that make up the text.

For example, texts of the Tanach like Genesis are divided into "Chapters" which are then divided into "Verses".

Larger texts, such as the Mishneh Torah, may have more levels in their hierarchy, for example "Book" > "Section" > "Chapter" > "Law".

Shorthands are alternative ways of refering to a particular point or passage in a text.

For example "Rambam, Hilchot Tshuva" is shorter and more common way to refer to the 7th topic in the first book of Mishneh Torah. From Sefaria's perpective, this segment of text is "Mishneh Torah 1:7", but we we want to capture more human readable forms.

Shorthands are also used to capture multiple ways to refer to a text. For example, since Sefaria stores Genesis in terms of chapters and verses, "Parsha Toledot" is a shorthand for "Genesis 25:19-28:9".

Enter the shorthand text in the box on the left, then enter either a single reference or a range on the right.
