Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 God remembered Noach, every living thing and all the livestock with him in the ark; so God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water began to go down. 1 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
2 Also the fountains of the deep and the windows of the sky were stopped, the rain from the sky was restrained, 2 Now the springs of the deep and the floodgates of the heavens had been closed, and the rain had stopped falling from the sky.
3 and the water came back from completely covering the earth. It was after 150 days that the water went down. 3 The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down,
4 On the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. 4 and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
5 The water kept going down until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen. 5 The waters continued to recede until the tenth month, and on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains became visible.
6 After forty days Noach opened the window of the ark which he had built; 6 After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark
7 and he sent out a raven, which flew back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth. 7 and sent out a raven, and it kept flying back and forth until the water had dried up from the earth.
8 Then he sent out a dove, to see if the water had gone from the surface of the ground. 8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.
9 But the dove found no place for her feet to rest, so she returned to him in the ark, because the water still covered the whole earth. He put out his hand, took her and brought her in to him in the ark. 9 But the dove could find no place to set its feet because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark.
10 He waited another seven days and again sent the dove out from the ark. 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 The dove came in to him in the evening, and there in her mouth was a freshly plucked olive leaf, so Noach knew that the water had cleared from the earth. 11 When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf ! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth.
12 He waited yet another seven days and sent out the dove, and she didn't return to him any more. 12 He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.
13 By the first day of the first month of the 601st year the water had dried up from off the earth; so Noach removed the covering of the ark and looked; and, yes, the surface of the ground was dry. 13 By the first day of the first month of Noah's six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry.
14 It was on the twenty-seventh day of the second month that the earth was dry. 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.
15 God said to Noach, 15 Then God said to Noah,
16 "Go out from the ark, you, your wife, your sons and your son's wives with you. 16 "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
17 Bring out with you every living thing you have with you - birds, livestock and every animal that creeps on the earth - so that they can swarm on the earth, be fruitful and multiply on the earth." 17 Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you--the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground--so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number upon it."
18 So Noach went out with his sons, his wife and his sons' wives; 18 So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives.
19 every animal, every creeping thing and every bird, whatever moves on the earth, according to their families, went out of the ark. 19 All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds--everything that moves on the earth--came out of the ark, one kind after another.
20 Noach built an altar to ADONAI. Then he took from every clean animal and every clean bird, and he offered burnt offerings on the altar. 20 Then Noah built an altar to the LORD and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it.
21 ADONAI smelled the sweet aroma, and ADONAI said in his heart, "I will never again curse the ground because of humankind, since the imaginings of a person's heart are evil from his youth; nor will I ever again destroy all living things, as I have done. 21 The LORD smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: "Never again will I curse the ground because of man, even though every inclination of his heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.
22 So long as the earth exists, sowing time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease." 22 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
