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.

As long as the earth remains : God has put all things in order : I must adjust my life to live as He has put forth . Whatever I say or do : I will reap the harvest of it , wether good : or bad. Put a watch on my mouth.

GEN 8-18...If you go back to chapter 7 you can read that the pairs were not the only animals that Noah brought onto the ark. They were also sets of sevens male and female of clean animals, they couldn 't have ate all while in their stay on the ark so I 'm sure these were what was used for the offering. 10-4 GOD ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING, HE IS THE OMNIPITENT COMMANDER, PRAISE THE HOLY NAME OF YAHWEH, AND PRAISE YESHUA THE KING OF KINGS. AMEN!!


George's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 3/12/2015, 2:02pm...

As Noah only had pairs of beasts as he debarked, where did he get animals for offering from verse 20?

We must walk with faith and not by sight. Increase your faith to Jesus for He is the only good Shephered whom he is willing to lay down his life to us coz of his loves and mercy to us. Whaterver turbulence comes in our lives still Jesus is a Son of the Living God who is powerful and mighty for he is the only Savior to us. Nothing is impossible for our God. He never fail us and He always open his door for us to comfort us. Keep your faith coz God is God and we can never change him. He can only change us. Be blessed and keep rejoicing and praising God. Thank him for everything he have done into our lives. A good Shephered knows his own people, a good sheep follows the Shephered will hear his voice until rapture. Jesus loves you

I would like to add to my comment, the bases of our success truly relies on our faith in Jesus Christ. Yes, if we sow the right seeds Jesus will bless us, however in the end those who believe in Jesus Christ and follow through with Acts 2 38 our success relies on our foundation and belief in Jesus Christ. The walk is not easy sometimes, but Jesus Christ is always there to support and help us.


Evangelist Chatauna Robinson's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 10/23/2014, 8:47am...

Hello Ferinand C. Galatians 6 7 "Be not deceived God is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap ".


Ferinand C's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 10/23/2014, 4:51am...

Our out put in success is determined by our input in sowing as law of reaping being ruled by that of sowing.
