Then God spoke to Noah,
"Come out of the ark, you, your wife, your sons, and your sons' wives with you.
Bring out every living thing of all flesh that is with you-birds, livestock, creatures that crawl on the ground-and they will spread over the earth and be fruitful and multiply on the earth."
So Noah, along with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives, came out.
All wildlife, all livestock, every bird, and every creature that crawls on the earth came out of the ark by their groups.
Then Noah built an altar to the Lord. He took some of every kind of clean animal and every kind of clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
When the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, He said to Himself, "I will never again curse the grounda because of man, even though man's inclination is evil from his youth. And I will never again strike down every living thing as I have done.
As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease."
