Chapter 8

The waters asswage

8:1 And ELOHEEM remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and ELOHEEM made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided;
8:2 The fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were stopped, and the rain from the heavens were restrained;
8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually (in going and returning): and after the end of the hundred and fifty days were abated.

The ark rest

8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the mont, upon the mountains of Ararat.
8:5 And the waters decreased continually until 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, and it went out going and returning until the waters were dried up 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 on 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 the ark.
8:10 And he stayed yet another 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, behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated off the earth.
8:12 And he stayed yet another 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 up 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 ELOHEEM spoke to Noah, saying,
8:16 Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you.
8:17 Bring forth with you every living thing, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle,and of every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.

Noah goes forth

8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and what ever creeps upon the earth, after their families, went forth out of the ark.
8:20 And Noah built an altar to Yehovah; and took of every clean beast, and every clean fowl. And offered burnt offerings on the altar.

God promises to curse the earth no more

8:21 And Yehovah smelled the soothing fragrance; and Yehovah said in his heart, I will not curse the ground anymore because of man; for the though of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again strike any more every thing living, as I have done.
8:22 As yet all the days of the earth remain, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
