Make a ship of gopher wood. You are to make rooms in the ship and seal it inside and outside with pitch. Bible

“gopher wood.” The identity of gopher wood is unknown, although guesses and suppositions about exactly what kind of wood it is have been made. Since we do not know all the kinds of trees that existed before the Flood, and do not have Noah’s ark from which we could examine a sample, it is best to just leave the text “gopher wood.”
