1 And God remembred Noah, and euery liuing thing, and all the cattell that was with him in the Arke: and God made a winde to passe ouer the earth, and the waters asswaged.

2 The fountaines also of the deepe, and the windowes of heauen were stopped, and the raine from heauen was restrained.

3 And the waters returned from off the earth, continually: and after the end of the hundred and fiftie dayes, the waters were abated.

4 And the Arke rested in the seuenth moneth, on the seuenteenth day of the moneth, vpon the mountaines of Ararat.

5 And the waters decreased continually vntill the tenth moneth: in the tenth moneth, on the first day of the moneth, were the tops of the mountaines seene.

6 And it came to passe at the end of forty dayes, that Noah opened the window of the Arke which he had made.

7 And he sent forth a Rauen, which went foorth to and fro, vntill the waters were dried vp from off the earth.

8 Also hee sent foorth a doue from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground.

9 But the doue found no rest for the sole of her foote, and she returned vnto him into the Arke: for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. Then he put foorth his hand, and tooke her, and pulled her in vnto him, into the Arke.

10 And hee stayed yet other seuen dayes; and againe hee sent foorth the doue out of the Arke.

11 And the doue came in to him in the euening, and loe, in her mouth was an Oliue leafe pluckt off: So Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.

12 And hee stayed yet other seuen dayes, and sent forth the doue, which returned not againe vnto him any more.

13 And it came to passe in the sixe hundredth and one yeere, in the first moneth, the first day of the moneth, the waters were dryed vp from off the earth: and Noah remooued the couering of the Arke, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was drie.

14 And in the second moneth, on the seuen and twentieth day of the moneth, was the earth dried.

15 And God spake vnto Noah, saying,

16 Goe foorth of the Arke, thou, and thy wife, and thy sonnes, and thy sonnes wiues with thee:

17 Bring foorth with thee euery liuing thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowle, and of cattell, and of euery creeping thing that creepeth vpon the earth, that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitfull, and multiply vpon the earth.

18 And Noah went foorth, and his sonnes, and his wife, and his sonnes wiues with him:

19 Euery beast, euery creeping thing, and euery fowle, and whatsoeuer creepeth vpon the earth, after their kinds, went foorth out of the Arke.

20 And Noah builded an Altar vnto the LORD, and tooke of euery cleane beast, and of euery cleane fowle, and offred burnt offrings on the Altar.

21 And the LORD smelled a sweete sauour, and the LORD said in his heart, I will not againe curse the ground any more for mans sake; for the imagination of mans heart is euil from his youth: neither will I againe smite any more euery thing liuing, as I haue done.

22 While the earth remaineth, seed-time and haruest, and cold, and heat, and Summer, and Winter, and day and night, shall not cease.

Situations, etc. Flood like, pray to God, appreciation to your man or woman of God, this is one of the major blood vessels in prosperity as Genesis 8 22 love God and bless God and trust God for who he is, tell the master everything

The raven flew all over searching for dry land in order to also rest but found none and drowned.

George Genesis is the beginning and there was nothing else before Genesis except GOD. Certainly NOT the epic of Gilgamesh, sorry.


Arthur Thompson's Genesis Chapter 8 comment about verse 7 on 9/01/2014, 2:58pm...

My problem with the noah 's story is if the whole earth was covered with water how far did the raven went, around the world,or just a localize area?


George Hartwell's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 8/24/2014, 4:07pm...

This flood myth is almost the same as the flood myth in the fables entitled "The Epic of Gilgamesh " which was written long before Genesis. I wonder how much of the bible is just a collection of short stories.

God Knows every body 's deed.Whether you are trillion of evil minded people God totaly knows your righeousness,and He will reward according to your deeds.So i advice you that lets maintain who we are and God wil reward us.


Bernice Eloho Okwezuzu's Genesis Chapter 8 comment about verse 4 on 7/31/2014, 3:54pm...

Our God is awesome! The ark rested in the 7th Month on the 17th day, upon the Mountains of Ararat. This shows how specific Our God is. It shows that there is time and place for everything. There were so many Mountains...Why did God choose Ararat? God has a place for everything. Divine timing goes with Divine Positioning. Have you ever asked God if where you are now is the right place for you? If you are going through a flood like experience, an up and down situation, instability etc I advice you pray and ask God to cause your ark to rest in the right place...There is a Mountain Ararat for you and until you get there you can 't rest. I pray for you today that the Good Lord will cause your ark to rest in your Mountain Ararat in Jesus Name! Amen.
