Genesis 8

The Flood Subsides
1But God #ch. 19:29; 30:22; Ex. 2:24; 1 Sam. 1:19 remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the livestock that were with him in the ark. And #Ex. 14:21God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided. 2#ch. 7:11The fountains of the deep and #ch. 7:11the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained, 3and the waters receded from the earth continually. At the end #ch. 7:24of 150 days the waters had abated, 4and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of #2 Kgs. 19:37; Isa. 37:38; Jer. 51:27Ararat. 5And the waters continued to abate until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6At the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark that he had made 7and sent forth a raven. It went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth. 8Then he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters had subsided from the face of the ground. 9But the dove found no place to set her foot, and she returned to him to the ark, for the waters were still on the face of the whole earth. So he put out his hand and took her and brought her into the ark with him. 10He waited another seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark. 11And the dove came back to him in the evening, and behold, in her mouth was a freshly plucked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the waters had subsided from the earth. 12Then he waited another seven days and sent forth the dove, and she did not return to him anymore.
13In the six hundred and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried from off the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dry. 14In the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth had dried out. 15Then God said to Noah, 16“Go out from the ark, #ch. 7:13you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. 17Bring out with you every living thing that is with you of all flesh—birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth—that they may swarm on the earth, and #ch. 1:22, 28; 9:1be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” 18So Noah went out, and his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives with him. 19Every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the earth, went out by families from the ark.
God’s Covenant with Noah
20Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21And when the Lord smelled #Ex. 29:18, 25, 41; Lev. 1:9, 13, 17; See Ezek. 16:19; 20:41; 2 Cor. 2:15; Eph. 5:2; Phil. 4:18 the pleasing aroma, the Lord said in his heart, “I will never again #ch. 3:17; 6:17 curse#8:21 Or dishonor the ground because of man, for #ch. 6:5; Ps. 58:3; Rom. 1:21; [Matt. 15:19] the intention of man’s heart is evil from his youth. #ch. 9:11, 15; Isa. 54:9Neither will I ever again strike down every living creature as I have done. 22#Jer. 5:24 While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, #Jer. 33:20, 25day and night, shall not cease.”

1And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] remembered Noach (Rest, Consolation), and every living thing, and all the cattle that [was] with him in the ark: and God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;
2The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
3And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
4And the 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 tops of the mountains seen.
6And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noach (Rest, Consolation) opened the window of the ark which he had made:
7And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
8Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
9But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters [were] on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
10And he detained (held) yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
11And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth [was] an olive leaf plucked off: so Noach (Rest, Consolation) knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
12And he detained (held) yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him anymore.
13And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first [month], the first [day] of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noach (Rest, Consolation) removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
14And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
15And God-Elōhīm [The Living Word - The Many Powered] spoke unto Noach (Rest, Consolation), saying,
16Go forth of the ark, youi, and youri wife, and youri sons, and youri sons’ wives with youi.
17Bring forth with youi every living thing that [is] with youi, of all flesh, [both] of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
18And Noach (Rest, Consolation) went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him:
19Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, [and] whatsoever creeps upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
20And Noach (Rest, Consolation) built an altar unto the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21And the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) smelled a soothing aroma; and the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’ sake; for the imagination of man’s heart [is] evil from his youth; neither will I again strike any more everything living, as I have done.
22While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
