Bring every animal out of the boat with you -- the birds, animals, and everything that crawls on the earth. Let them have many young ones so that they might grow in number."
So Noah went out with his sons, his wife, and his sons' wives.
Every animal, everything that crawls on the earth, and every bird went out of the boat by families.
Then Noah built an altar to the Lord. He took some of all the clean birds and animals, and he burned them on the altar as offerings to God.
The Lord was pleased with these sacrifices and said to himself, "I will never again curse the ground because of human beings. Their thoughts are evil even when they are young, but I will never again destroy every living thing on the earth as I did this time.
"As long as the earth continues, planting and harvest, cold and hot, summer and winter, day and night will not stop."
