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.

George Hartwell's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 4/18/2014, 4:43pm...

When all of the animals got out of the Ark, what did they have to eat? The carnivores would have had nothing to eat because all the animals that were not on the ark would have been killed. The herbivores would have had nothing to eat because all the plant life would have died. In a worldwide flood, all the fresh water would have got mixed with the sea water, so fish which live in either one or the other would have died. It looks to me as though the author of this particular myth did not think of these things. Has anyone got any comments on this, please?


Deborah Bryant's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 3/16/2014, 6:21pm...

Having faith in God is a great thing because through him all things are possible I think God was please to find out that Noah choose God as top priority over everything for he did not choose to build his home first but he choose to make a place of worship for God I understand that God place in my life is first foremost than any one or anything I like his promise that he will not destroy earth again by water


Mary Simon's Genesis Chapter 8 comment on 3/08/2014, 5:46pm...

And the ark in accordance to the perfectness of the Lord and His direction rested on the mountains of Ararat This shows that God being the coordinator of the Ark knew the standing position of the Ark of which noah hand no idea

I Know dat God will save those dat trusted in him in time like this. He would never allow water to eat us up. Praise thy Lord for he is good


Kams's Genesis Chapter 8 comment about verse 22 on 1/30/2014, 6:36am...

God Almighty has put things in place on Earth for us.He desires worship and if we,His choice creation, fail to do so, nature itself, will not cease to glorify Him.Noah's worship ascended to Heaven and it was pleasant to the Father; so to our life ought to be a living sacrifice burning and permeating the heavens as a sweet smelling savor unto God.
