1 Then God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided.

2 The fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were also stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained.

3 And the waters receded continually from the earth. And after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters subsided.

4 Then the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.

6 And it came to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made.

7 And he sent out a raven, which went to and fro until the waters had dried up from off the earth.

8 He also sent out from himself a dove, to see if the waters had receded from off the face of the ground.

9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him in the ark, because, the waters were on the face of the whole earth. Then he put out his hand and took her, and pulled her to himself in the ark.

10 And he waited yet another seven days, and again he sent out the dove out from the ark.

11 Then the dove came in to him in the evening, and behold, an olive leaf was plucked off was in her mouth; and Noah knew that the waters had receded from the earth.

12 So he waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, which did not return again to him anymore.
