But God showed concern for Noah. He also showed concern for all of the wild animals and livestock that were with Noah in the ark. So God sent a wind over the earth. And the waters began to go down.
The springs at the bottom of the oceans had been closed. The windows of the skies had been closed. And the rain had stopped falling from the sky.
The water continued to go down from the earth. At the end of the 150 days the water had gone down.
On the 17th day of the seventh month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
The waters continued to go down until the tenth month. On the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains could be seen.
After 40 days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark.
