Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God remembered Noah and all the wild animals, and all the domesticated animals that [were] with him in the ark. And God caused a wind to blow 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 the heavens were closed, and the rain from the heavens 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 waters receded from the earth {gradually}, and the waters abated at the end of one 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 ark came to rest 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 {continued to recede} to the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains 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 it happened [that] at the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark that he had made. 6 After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark
7 And he sent out a raven; {it went to and fro} until the waters were dried up from upon 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 a dove} to see [whether] the waters had subsided from upon 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 did not find a resting place for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark, for the waters [were still] on the face of the earth. And he stretched out his hand and took her, and brought her to himself 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 another seven days, and {again he sent out} the dove from the ark. 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 And the dove came to him {in the evening}, and behold, a freshly-picked olive tree leaf [was] in her mouth. And Noah knew that the waters had subsided from upon 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 {seven more days}, and he sent out the dove. But it did not return again 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 happened that, in the six hundred and first year, in the first [month], on the first [day] of the month, the waters dried up from upon the earth. And Noah removed the covering of the ark and looked. And behold, the face of the ground was dried up. 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 from the ark, you and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you. 16 "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
17 Bring out with you all the living things which [are] with you, from all the living creatures--birds, and animals, and everything that creeps on the earth, and let them swarm on the earth and 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 Noah went out, with 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 Every animal, every creeping thing, and every bird, [and] everything [that] moves upon the earth, according to its families, went out from 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 Yahweh, and he took from all the clean animals and from all the clean birds, and 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 And Yahweh smelled the soothing fragrance, and Yahweh said {to himself}, "{Never again will I curse} the ground for the sake of humankind, because the inclination of the heart of humankind [is] evil from his youth. {Nor will I ever again destroy} all life 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 {As long as the earth endures}, seed and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, 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."
