And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
- the ark
- seventh month
- That is, of the year, not of the deluge.
- Ararat is generally understood to be Armenia, as it is rendered elsewhere, in which there is a great chain of mountains, like the Alps or the Pyrenees, upon the highest part of which, called by some, "The Finger Mountain," the ark is supposed to have rested.
