Genesis 8

The Flood Abates
1And God remembered and thought kindly of Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind blow over the land, and the waters receded. 2Also the fountains of the deep [subterranean waters] and the windows of the heavens were closed, the [pouring] rain from the sky was restrained, 3and the waters receded steadily from the earth. At the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters had diminished. 4On the seventeenth day of the seventh month [five months after the rain began], the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat [in #Formerly in Armenia, now in Turkey—near the present-day Turkish-Armenian border.Turkey]. 5The waters continued to decrease until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen.
6At the end of [another] forty days Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made; 7and he sent out a raven, which flew here and there until the waters were dried up from the earth. 8Then Noah sent out a dove to see if the water level had fallen below the surface of the land. 9But the dove found no place on which to rest the sole of her foot, and she returned to him to the ark, for the waters were [still] on the face of the entire earth. So he reached out his hand and took the dove, and brought her into the ark. 10He waited another seven days and again sent the dove out from the ark. 11The dove came back to him in the evening, and there, in her beak, was a fresh olive leaf. So Noah knew that the water level had subsided from the earth. 12Then he waited another seven days and sent out the dove, but she did not return to him again.
13Now in the six hundred and first year [of Noah’s life], on the first day of the first month, the waters were drying up from the earth. Then Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and the surface of the ground was drying. 14On the twenty-seventh day of the second month the land was [entirely] dry. 15And God spoke to Noah, saying, 16“Go out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives with you. 17Bring out with you every living thing from all flesh—birds and animals and every crawling thing that crawls on the earth—that they may breed abundantly on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18So Noah went out, and his wife and his sons and their wives with him [after being in the ark one year and ten days]. 19Every animal, every crawling thing, every bird—and whatever moves on the land—went out by families (types, groupings) from the ark.
20And Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every [ceremonially] clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma [a soothing, satisfying scent] and the Lord said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the intent (strong inclination, desire) of man’s heart is wicked from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done.
22While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease.”

1Now God remembred Noah and euery beast, and all the cattell that was with him in the Arke: therefore God made a winde to passe vpon the earth, and the waters ceased. 2The fountaines also of the deepe and the windowes of heauen were stopped and the raine from heauen was restrained, 3And the waters returned from aboue the earth, going and returning: and after the ende of the hundreth and fiftieth day the waters abated. 4And in the seuenth moneth, in the seuenteenth day of the moneth, the Arke rested vpon the mountaines of Ararat. 5And the waters were going and decreasing vntill the tenth moneth: in the tenth moneth, and in the first day of the moneth were the toppes of the mountaines seene. 6So after fourtie dayes, Noah opened the windowe of the Arke, which he had made, 7And sent forth a rauen, which went out going forth and returning, vntill the waters were dried vp vpon the earth. 8Againe he sent a doue from him, that he might see if the waters were diminished from off the earth. 9But the doue found no rest for the sole of her foote: therefore she returned vnto him into the Arke (for the waters were vpon the whole earth) and he put forth his hand, and receiued her, and tooke her to him into the Arke. 10And he abode yet other seuen dayes, and againe he sent forth the doue out of the Arke. 11And the doue came to him in ye euening, and loe, in her mouth was an oliue leafe that she had pluckt: whereby Noah knewe that the waters were abated from off the earth. 12Notwithstanding he wayted yet other seuen dayes, and sent forth the doue, which returned not againe vnto him any more. 13And in the sixe hundreth and one yeere, in the first day of the first moneth the waters were dryed vp from off the earth: and Noah remoued the couering of the Arke and looked, and beholde, the vpper part of the ground was drie. 14And in the second moneth, in the seuen and twentieth day of the moneth was the earth drie. 15Then God spake to Noah, saying, 16Goe forth of the Arke, thou and thy wife, and thy sonnes and thy sonnes wiues with thee. 17Bring forth with thee euery beast that is with thee, of all flesh, both foule and cattell, and euery thing that creepeth and moueth vpon the earth, that they may breede abundantly in ye earth, and bring forth fruite and increase vpon ye earth. 18So Noah came forth, and his sonnes, and his wife, and his sonnes wiues with him. 19Euery beast, euery creeping thing, and euery foule, all that moueth vpon the earth after their kindes went out of the Arke. 20Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and tooke of euery cleane beast, and of euery cleane foule, and offered burnt offerings vpon the altar. 21And the Lord smellled a sauour of rest, and the Lord said in his heart, I will hencefoorth curse the ground no more for mans cause: for the imagination of mans heart is euill, euen from his youth: neither will I smite any more all things liuing, as I haue done. 22Hereafter seede time and haruest, and colde and heate, and sommer and winter, and day and night shall not cease, so long as ye earth remaineth.
