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.”

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.
