GEN 8:1 And God remembereth Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle which `are' with him in the ark, and God causeth a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subside,
GEN 8:2 and closed are the fountains of the deep and the net-work of the heavens, and restrained is the shower from the heavens.
GEN 8:3 And turn back do the waters from off the earth, going on and returning; and the waters are lacking at the end of a hundred and fifty days.
GEN 8:4 And the ark resteth, in the seventh month, in the seventeenth day of the month, on mountains of Ararat;
GEN 8:5 and the waters have been going and becoming lacking till the tenth month; in the tenth `month', on the first of the month, appeared the heads of the mountains.
GEN 8:6 And it cometh to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah openeth the window of the ark which he made,
GEN 8:7 and he sendeth forth the raven, and it goeth out, going out and turning back till the drying of the waters from off the earth.
GEN 8:8 And he sendeth forth the dove from him to see whether the waters have been lightened from off the face of the ground,
GEN 8:9 and the dove hath not found rest for the sole of her foot, and she turneth back unto him, unto the ark, for waters `are' on the face of all the earth, and he putteth out his hand, and taketh her, and bringeth her in unto him, unto the ark.
GEN 8:10 And he stayeth yet other seven days, and addeth to send forth the dove from the ark;
GEN 8:11 and the dove cometh in unto him at even-time, and lo, an olive leaf torn off in her mouth; and Noah knoweth that the waters have been lightened from off the earth.
GEN 8:12 And he stayeth yet other seven days, and sendeth forth the dove, and it added not to turn back unto him any more.
GEN 8:13 And it cometh to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first `month', in the first of the month, the waters have been dried from off the earth; and Noah turneth aside the covering of the ark, and looketh, and lo, the face of the ground hath been dried.
GEN 8:14 And in the second month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, the earth hath become dry.
GEN 8:15 And God speaketh unto Noah, saying, `Go out from the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee;
GEN 8:16 every living thing that `is' with thee, of all flesh, among fowl, and among cattle, and among every creeping thing which is creeping on the earth, bring out with thee;
GEN 8:17 and they have teemed in the earth, and been fruitful, and have multiplied on the earth.'
GEN 8:18 And Noah goeth out, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him;
GEN 8:19 every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl; every creeping thing on the earth, after their families, have gone out from the ark.
GEN 8:20 And Noah buildeth an altar to Jehovah, and taketh of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and causeth burnt-offerings to ascend on the altar;
GEN 8:21 and Jehovah smelleth the sweet fragrance, and Jehovah saith unto His heart, `I continue not to disesteem any more the ground because of man, though the imagination of the heart of man `is' evil from his youth; and I continue not to smite any more all living, as I have done;
GEN 8:22 during all days of the earth, seed-time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, do not cease.'
