The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God remembered Noah, and all the animals, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided. 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 fountains of the deep and the windows of heaven were closed, and the pour of rain from heaven was stopped. 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 retired from the earth, continually retiring; and in the course of a hundred and fifty days the waters abated. 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 ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, 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 And the waters abated continually until the tenth month: in the tenth [month], on the first of the 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 And it came to pass at the end of forty days that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made. 6 After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark
7 And he sent out the raven, which went forth going to and fro, until the waters were dried 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 And he sent out the dove from him, to see if the waters had become low on 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 resting-place for the sole of her foot, and returned to him into the ark; for the waters were on the whole earth; and he put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into 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 And he waited yet other seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark. 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 And the dove came to him at eventide; and behold, in her beak was an olive-leaf plucked off; and Noah knew that the waters had become low on 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 he waited yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove; but she returned no more to him. 12 He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.
13 And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first [month], on the first of the month, that the waters were dried up from the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the surface of the ground was dried. 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 And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth was dry. 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.
15 And God spoke to Noah, saying, 15 Then God said to Noah,
16 Go out of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. 16 "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
17 Bring forth with thee every animal which is with thee, of all flesh, fowl as well as cattle, and all the creeping things which creep on the earth, that they may swarm on the earth, and may 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 And Noah went out, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him. 18 So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons' wives.
19 All the animals, all the creeping things, and all the fowl -- everything that moves on the earth, after their kinds, 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 And Noah built an altar to Jehovah; and took of every clean animal, and of all clean fowl, and offered up 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 And Jehovah smelled the sweet odour. And Jehovah said in his heart, I will no more henceforth curse the ground on account of Man, for the thought of Man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will no more smite every living thing, 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 Henceforth, all the days of the earth, seed [time] and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease. 22 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
