Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
1 Forsooth the Lord had mind of Noe, and of all living beasts, and of all work beasts, that were with him in the ship; and [he] brought a wind on the earth. And [the] waters were decreased, or assuaged, (And the Lord remembered Noah, and all the living beasts, and all the work beasts, that were with him in the ship; and he brought forth a wind on the earth. And the waters decreased,) 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 and the wells of the sea were closed, and the windows of (the) heaven(s) were closed, and (the) rains of (the) heaven(s) were ceased. (and the wells of the sea were closed, and the windows of the sky were closed, and the rains from the sky ceased.) 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] waters turned again from (off) the earth, and went again, and began to be decreased, or assuaged, after an hundred and fifty days. 3 The water receded steadily from the earth. At the end of the hundred and fifty days the water had gone down,
4 And the ship rested in the seventh month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, on the hills of Armenia. (And the ship rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on Mount Ararat.) 4 and on the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
5 And soothly the waters went and decreased till to the tenth month, for in the tenth month, in the first day of the month (on the first day of the month), the tops of [the] hills appeared. 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 And when forty days had passed, Noe opened the window of the ship which he had made, 6 After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark
7 and sent out a crow, which went out, and turned not again till the waters were dried on [the] earth. (and sent out a crow, which went out, and did not return until the waters were dried up from off 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 Also Noe sent out a culver after him, to see if the waters had ceased then on the face of the earth; (And then Noah sent out a dove after him, to see if the waters had now gone from off the face of the earth;) 8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.
9 and when the culver found not where her foot should rest, she turned again to him into the ship, for the waters were on all [the] earth; and Noe held forth his hand, and brought the culver, (once) taken, (back) into the ship. (but when the dove found nowhere to rest her feet, she returned to him in the ship, for the waters were still over all the earth; and Noah held forth his hand, and caught her, and brought the dove back into the ship.) 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 Soothly when other seven days were abided afterward, again he sent out a culver from the ship; (And he waited another seven days, and then again he sent out the dove from the ship;) 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 and she came (back) to him at eventide, and bare in her mouth a branch of (an) olive tree with green leaves. Therefore Noe understood that the waters had ceased (from flowing) on (the) earth (And so Noah understood that the waters had now gone from off the face of 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 and nevertheless he abode seven other days, and (then) sent out a culver, which turned not again to him. (nevertheless he waited another seven days, and then again sent out the dove, but this time she did not return to him.) 12 He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.
13 Therefore in the six hundred and one year of the life of Noe, in the first month, in the first day of the month, [the] waters were decreased on (the) earth; and Noe opened the roof of the ship, and beheld, and saw that the face of the earth was dried. (And so in the six hundred and first year of Noah's life, in the first month, on the first day of the month, the waters were gone from off the face of the earth; and Noah opened the roof of the ship, and looked, and saw that the face of the earth was becoming 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 In the second month, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, the earth was made dry. (And by the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the whole earth was made dry.) 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.
15 Soothly the Lord spake to Noe; and said, 15 Then God said to Noah,
16 Go out of the ship, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and the wives of thy sons with thee; 16 "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
17 and lead out with thee all living beasts that be with thee of each flesh, as well in volatiles, as in unreasonable beasts, and all reptiles/all creeping beasts that creep on [the] earth; and enter ye on the earth, increase ye, and be ye multiplied on (the) earth. (and lead out with thee all the living beasts that be with thee of all flesh, yea, the birds, and the unreasoning beasts, and all the reptiles that creep on the earth; and go they over the earth, and increase they, and be they multiplied 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 Therefore Noe went out, and his sons, and his wife, and the wives of his sons with him; 18 So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives.
19 but also all (the) living beasts, and work beasts, (and birds,) and reptiles that creep on [the] earth, (all) by their kind, went out of the ship. 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 Forsooth Noe builded an altar to the Lord, and he took of all clean beasts and birds, and offered burnt sacrifices on the altar. (And Noah built an altar to the Lord, and he took one of each kind of the clean beasts and birds, and offered burnt sacrifices 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 And the Lord savoured the odour of sweetness, and said to him(self), I shall no more curse the earth for men, for (I know that) the wit and thought of man's heart be ready, either prone, into evil from (a) young waxing age; therefore I shall no more smite each living soul, as I did; (And the Lord savoured the aroma of sweetness, and said to himself, I shall no more curse the earth for man's sake, for I know that the wit and the thought of man's heart be prone toward evil from a young age; and so I shall no more strike down each living soul, 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 (and so) in all the days of [the] earth, seed and ripe corn, cold and heat, summer and winter, night and day, shall not rest. (and so for all the days that remain for the earth, seed-time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, night and day, shall never cease.) 22 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
