Genesis 8


8:1 And God remembered Noah, and every living animal, and all
 the cattle that [were] with him in the ark: and God made a wind
 to pass over the earth, and the waters were checked.
8:2 The fountains also of the deep, and the windows of heaven
 were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and
 after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were
 abated.
8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth
 day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
8:5 And the waters decreased continually, till the tenth month:
 in the tenth [month], on the first [day] of the month, were the
 tops of the mountains seen.
8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah
 opened the window of the ark which he had made:
8:7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, till
 the waters were dried from off the earth.
8:8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters
 were abated from off the face of the ground;
8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she
 returned to 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 to him into the ark.
8:10 And he stayed yet other seven days, and again he sent forth
 the dove out of the ark;
8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening, and lo, in her
 mouth [was] an olive-leaf plucked off: So Noah knew that the
 waters were abated from off the earth.
8:12 And he stayed yet other seven days, and sent forth the
 dove; which returned not again to him any more.
8:13 And 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 from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of
 the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was
 dry.
8:14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of
 the month, was the earth dried.
8:15 And God spoke to Noah, saying,
8:16 Go forth from the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons,
 and thy sons' wives with thee.
8:17 Bring forth with thee every living animal that [is] with
 thee, of all flesh, of fowl, and of cattle, and of every
 creeping animal that creepeth upon the earth; that they may
 breed abundantly on the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply
 upon the earth.
8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his
 sons' wives with him:
8:19 Every beast, every creeping animal, and every fowl, [and]
 whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went out
 of the ark.
8:20 And Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every
 clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered
 burnt-offerings on the altar.
8:21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savor; and the LORD said in
 his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's
 sake; for the imagination of man's heart [is] evil from his
 youth: neither will I again smite any more every living animal
 as I have done.
8:22 While the earth remaineth, seed-time and harvest, and cold
 and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not
 cease.
