Genesis 8:1-7 NLT

1 But God remembered Noah and all the animals in the boat. He sent a wind to blow across the waters, and the floods began to disappear.
2 The underground water sources ceased their gushing, and the torrential rains stopped.
3 So the flood gradually began to recede. After 150 days,
4 exactly five months from the time the flood began, a the boat came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
