That story was recounted in Genesis 6-9.
At the time of Noah, men began to populate the Earth, and built great cities, but turned away from the way of God, except for Noah and his family.

Wen God decided to wipe out humanity, he warned Noah, telling him to create an ark for his wife, his sons and their wives, and one male and female of each species of animals, and so did he.

Noah was mocked, but son the Flood came, destroying all life on Earth, except for those in Noah's ark. For forty days, the storm kept on, before God remembered Noah and swift the storm away.

For a hundred and fifty days, the waters went down, and the seventeenth day of the seventh months, the ark rested on Mount Ararat. Noah sent a dove to scout, but she returned as the Earth was still drowned. Seven days later, he sent the dove back and she returned with a green olive leaf. Seven days later, he sent her out and she did not return, and God said to him to leave the ark with all its inhabitants.

Noah's people built an alter to burn offerings to God, who was pleased and promised never such purge would occur, with a rainbow as a sign that God would never destroy all living flesh again.[1]
