Genesis 8

CHAPTER 8

The Ark Settles on Ararat

And God called to mind Noah, and all of the wild beasts, and all of the cattle, and all of the winged creatures, and all of the crawling things, as much as was with him in the ark. And God brought a wind upon the earth, and [3abated 1the 2water]. And were revealed the springs of the abyss and the torrents of the heaven. And [3was constrained 1the 2rain] from the heaven. And [3gave way 1the 2water] going from the earth; and [3was lessened 1the 2water] after fifty and a hundred days. And [3settled 1the 2ark] in the seventh month, the seventh and twentieth of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat. And the water going forth lessened unto the tenth month. In the first of the month, [5appeared 1the 2heads 3of the 4mountains]. And it came to pass after forty days, Noah opened the window of the ark which he made. And he sent forth the crow to see if [3abated 1the 2water]. And going forth it returned not until the drying of the water from the earth. And he sent the dove after it to see if [3abated 1the 2water] from the earth. And [3no 4finding 1the 2dove] rest for her feet, returned to him into the ark, for water was upon all the face of the earth. And stretching out the hand, he took her to himself, and he brought her into the ark. 10 And waiting still [3days 2seven 1another], again he sent out the dove from the ark. 11 And [3returned 4to 5him 1the 2dove]; and she had [3leaf 2of an olive 1a twig] in her mouth; and Noah knew that [3abated 1the 2water] from the earth. 12 And waiting still [3days 2seven 1another]; again he sent out the dove; and she proceeded not to return to him again. 13 And it came to pass in the one and six hundredth year in the life of Noah, the first month, day one of the month, [3subsided 1the 2water] from the earth. And Noah uncovered the roof of the ark which he made. And he beheld that [3subsided 1the 2water] from the face of the earth. 14 And in the [2month 1second], seventh and twentieth of the month, [3was dried 1the 2earth]. 15 And [3said 1the  lord 2God] to Noah, saying, 16 Come forth from out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and the wives of your sons with you! 17 And all flesh from winged creatures unto cattle, and every reptile moving upon the earth, lead out with yourself! And grow and multiply upon the earth! 18 And Noah came forth, and his wife, and his sons, and the wives of his sons with him. 19 And all the wild beasts, and all the cattle, and every winged creature, and every reptile moving upon the earth, according to their type, came forth from the ark. 20 And Noah built an altar to the  lord. And he took from all the [2cattle 1clean], and from all the [2winged creatures 1clean], and offered them for a whole burnt-offering upon the altar. 21 And the  lord smelled the scent of pleasant aroma. And [3said 1the  lord 2God], In considering, I will not add yet to curse the earth on account of the works of men, for [4clings 1the 2thought 3of man] upon the wicked things from his youth. I will not add then still to strike all [2flesh 1living] as I did. 22 All the days of the earth, seed and harvest, chilliness and sweltering heat, summer and spring, day and night, will not be caused to cease.
