Creation vs. Flood

I was bored at work yesterday, and so I put together a chart comparing certain narrative elements of the first Genesis Creation account (1:1-2:4) and the account of the Noahic flood (7:17-9:17).

Creation/Flood Comparision

It’s fascinating that in the final form of Genesis the two creation stories are consecutive but the two flood stories are edited together.

Let me know what you think of my comparison, and if there are any parallels I missed.
