B'resheet (Gen) 8

8
1God remembered Noach, every living thing and all the livestock with him in the ark; so God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water began to go down. 2Also the fountains of the deep and the windows of the sky were stopped, the rain from the sky was restrained, 3and the water came back from completely covering the earth. It was after 150 days that the water went down. 4On the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. 5The water kept going down until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen.
6After forty days Noach opened the window of the ark which he had built; 7and he sent out a raven, which flew back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. 8Then he sent out a dove, to see if the water had gone from the surface of the ground. 9But the dove found no place for her feet to rest, so she returned to him in the ark, because the water still covered the whole earth. He put out his hand, took her and brought her in to him in the ark. 10He waited another seven days and again sent the dove out from the ark. 11The dove came in to him in the evening, and there in her mouth was a freshly plucked olive leaf, so Noach knew that the water had cleared from the earth. 12He waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, and she didn’t return to him any more.
13By the first day of the first month of the 601st year the water had dried up from off the earth; so Noach removed the covering of the ark and looked; and, yes, the surface of the ground was dry. 14It was on the twenty-seventh day of the second month that the earth was dry.
(iv) 15God said to Noach, 16“Go out from the ark, you, your wife, your sons and your son’s wives with you. 17Bring out with you every living thing you have with you — birds, livestock and every animal that creeps on the earth — so that they can swarm on the earth, be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18So Noach went out with his sons, his wife and his sons’ wives; 19every animal, every creeping thing and every bird, whatever moves on the earth, according to their families, went out of the ark.
20Noach built an altar to Adonai. Then he took from every clean animal and every clean bird, and he offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21Adonai smelled the sweet aroma, and Adonai said in his heart, “I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, since the imaginings of a person’s heart are evil from his youth; nor will I ever again destroy all living things, as I have done. 22So long as the earth exists, sowing time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.”

1And Elohim remembered Noach, and every living thing, and all the behemah that was with him in the tevah (ark); and Elohim made a ruach to pass over ha'aretz, and the waters subsided;
2The ma'ayanot (springs) also of the tehom and the floodgates of Shomayim were stopped, and the geshem from Shomayim was restrained;
3And the waters receded from on ha'aretz continually; and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
4And the tevah (ark) rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
5And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the rashei heharim seen.
6And it came to pass at the end of arba'im yom, that Noach opened the chalon (window) of the tevah (ark) which he had made;
7And he sent forth the orev (raven), which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off ha'aretz.
8Also he sent forth a yonah (dove) from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the adamah;
9But the yonah found no manoach (place of rest) for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the tevah, for the waters were on the p'nei kol ha'aretz; then he reached forth his yad, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the tevah (ark).
10And he waited yet another shivat yamim; and again he sent forth the yonah out of the tevah (ark);
11And the yonah returned to him in the erev; and, hinei, in her beak was a zayit (olive) leaf freshly plucked; so Noach had da'as that the mayim were abated from off ha'aretz.
12And he waited yet another shivat yamim; and sent forth the yonah; which returned not unto him again.
13And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the mayim were dried up from off ha'aretz; and Noach removed the mikhseh (covering) of the tevah (ark), and looked, and, hinei, the surface of the adamah was dry.
14And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was ha'aretz dry.
15And Elohim spoke unto Noach, saying,
16Go forth of the tevah (ark), thou, and thy isha, and thy banim, and the nashim of thy banim with thee.
17Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of kol basar, both of bird, and of behemah, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon ha'aretz; that they may multiply abundantly on ha'aretz, and be fruitful, and increase upon ha'aretz.
18And Noach went forth, and his banim, and his isha, and the nashim of his banim with him;
19Every animal, every remes, and every bird, and whatsoever creepeth upon ha'aretz, after their kinds, went forth out of the tevah (ark).
20And Noach built a Mizbe'ach unto Hashem; and took of every behemah hatehorah, and of kol haoph hatahor, and offered olot (burnt offerings) on the Mizbe'ach.
21And Hashem smelled a re'ach hannichoach; and Hashem said in His lev, I will not again curse the adamah any more ba'avur (because of) haAdam; for the yetzer of the lev haAdam is rah from his ne'urim (youth, childhood); neither will I again strike any more every thing living, as I have done.
22While ha'aretz remaineth, zera (seedtime) and katzir (harvest), and kor (cold) and chom (heat), and kayitz (summer) and choref (winter), and yom and lailah shall not cease.
