Genesis 8 ©
The waters abate. The ark resteth on Ararat. Noah sendeth out a raven and a dove. The earth is dried. Noah, being commanded, goeth forth of the ark. He buildeth an altar, and offereth sacrifice, which God accepteth, and promiseth to curse the earth no more.
And the waters returned from off the earth 1continually: and eafter the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the fmountains of Ararat.
And the waters 2decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
¶And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah gopened the window of the ark which he had made:
¶And it came to pass in the nsix hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
¶And God spake unto Noah, saying,
And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their 5kinds, went forth out of the ark.
And the LORD smelled 6a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again scurse the ground any more for man's sake; 7for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; tneither will I again smite any more every thing living, uas I have done.
