But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided;
the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained,
and the waters gradually receded from the earth. At the end of one hundred fifty days the waters had abated;
and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
The waters continued to abate until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains appeared.
At the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark that he had made
and sent out the raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth.
