Genesis 8

CHAPTER 8
1Forsooth the Lord had mind of Noah, and of all living beasts, and of all work beasts, that were with him in the ship; and [he] brought a wind on the earth. And [the] waters were decreased, or assuaged,
2and the wells of the sea were closed, and the windows of heaven were closed, and rains of heaven were ceased.
3And [the] waters turned again from off the earth, and went again, and began to be decreased, or assuaged, after an hundred and fifty days.
4And the ship rested in the seventh month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, on the hills [or mounts] of Armenia.
5And soothly the waters went and decreased till to the tenth month, for in the tenth month, in the first day of the month, the tops of [the] hills appeared.
6And when forty days had passed, Noah opened the window of the ship which he had made,
7and sent out a crow, which went out, and turned not again till the waters were dried on [the] earth.
8Also Noah sent out a culver after him, to see if the waters had ceased then on the face of the earth;
9and when the culver found not where her foot should rest, she turned again to him into the ship, for the waters were on all [the] earth; and Noah held forth his hand, and brought the culver taken into the ship.
10Soothly when other seven days were abided afterward, again he sent out a culver from the ship;
11and she came to him at eventide, and bare in her mouth a branch of an olive tree with green leaves. There-fore Noah understood that the waters had ceased or abated on earth;
12and nevertheless he abode seven other days, and sent out a culver, which turned not again to him.
13Therefore in the six hundred and one year of the life of Noah, in the first month, in the first day of the month, [the] waters were decreased on earth; and Noah opened the roof of the ship, and beheld, and saw that the face of the earth was dried.
14In the second month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, the earth was made dry.
15Soothly the Lord spake to Noah; and said,
16Go out of the ship, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and the wives of thy sons with thee;
17and lead out with thee all living beasts that be with thee of each flesh, as well in volatiles, as in unreason-able beasts, and all reptiles or all creeping beasts that creep on [the] earth; and enter ye on the earth, increase ye, and be ye multiplied on earth.
18Therefore Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him;
19but also all living beasts, and work beasts, and birds, and reptiles that creep on [the] earth, by their kind, went out of the ship.
20Forsooth Noah builded an altar to the Lord, and he took of all clean beasts and birds, and offered burnt sacrifices on the altar.
21And the Lord savoured the odour of sweetness, and said to him, I shall no more curse the earth for men, for the wit and thought of man’s heart be ready, either prone, into evil from young waxing age; therefore I shall no more smite each living soul, as I did;
22in all the days of [the] earth, seed and ripe corn, cold and heat, summer and winter, night and day, shall not rest.

1And God#GodHebrew: Elohim remembered Noah, and all the animals, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God#GodHebrew: Elohim made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2And the fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were closed, and the pour of rain from heaven was stopped. 3And the waters retired from the earth, continually retiring; and in the course of a hundred and fifty days the waters abated.
4And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5And the waters abated continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6And it came to pass at the end of forty days that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 7And he sent out the raven, which went forth going to and fro, until the waters were dried from the earth. 8And he sent out the dove from him, to see if the waters had become low on the ground. 9But the dove found no resting-place for the sole of her foot, and returned to him into the ark; for the waters were on the whole earth; and he put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the ark. 10And he waited yet other seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark. 11And the dove came to him at eventide; and behold, in her beak was an olive-leaf plucked off; and Noah knew that the waters had become low on the earth. 12And he waited yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove; but she returned no more to him.
13And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the surface of the ground was dried. 14And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry.
15And God#GodHebrew: Elohim spoke to Noah, saying, 16Go out of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. 17Bring forth with thee every animal which is with thee, of all flesh, fowl as well as cattle, and all the creeping things which creep on the earth, that they may swarm on the earth, and may be fruitful and multiply on the earth. 18And Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him. 19All the animals, all the creeping things, and all the fowl — everything that moves on the earth, after their kinds, went out of the ark.
20And Noah built an altar to Jehovah; and took of every clean animal, and of all clean fowl, and offered up burnt-offerings on the altar. 21And Jehovah smelled the sweet odour. And Jehovah said in his heart, I will no more henceforth curse the ground on account of Man, for the thought of Man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will no more smite every living thing, as I have done. 22Henceforth, all the days of the earth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease.
