And he sent forth a raven, which went forthtoa and fro , until the waters were dried up from off the earth.8
Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;9
But the dovefound no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her , and pulled her in unto him into the ark.10
And he stayed yet othersevendays; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;11
And the dove came in to him in the evening ; and, lo, in her mouth was an oliveleaf pluckt off: so Noahknew that the waters were abated from off the earth.12
And he stayed yet othersevendays; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
