Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And God remembereth Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle which [are] with him in the ark, and God causeth a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subside, 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 closed are the fountains of the deep and the net-work of the heavens, and restrained is the shower from the heavens. 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 turn back do the waters from off the earth, going on and returning; and the waters are lacking at the end of a 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 resteth, in the seventh month, in the seventeenth day of the month, on 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 have been going and becoming lacking till the tenth month; in the tenth [month], on the first of the month, appeared the heads of the mountains. 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 cometh to pass, at the end of forty days, that Noah openeth the window of the ark which he made, 6 After forty days Noah opened the window he had made in the ark
7 and he sendeth forth the raven, and it goeth out, going out and turning back till the drying of the waters 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 And he sendeth forth the dove from him to see whether the waters have been lightened from off the face of the ground, 8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.
9 and the dove hath not found rest for the sole of her foot, and she turneth back unto him, unto the ark, for waters [are] on the face of all the earth, and he putteth out his hand, and taketh her, and bringeth her in unto him, unto 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 stayeth yet other seven days, and addeth to send forth the dove from the ark; 10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 and the dove cometh in unto him at even-time, and lo, an olive leaf torn off in her mouth; and Noah knoweth that the waters have been lightened from off 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 stayeth yet other seven days, and sendeth forth the dove, and it added not to turn back unto 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 And it cometh to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first [month], in the first of the month, the waters have been dried from off the earth; and Noah turneth aside the covering of the ark, and looketh, and lo, the face of the ground hath been 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, in the seven and twentieth day of the month, the earth hath become dry. 14 By the twenty-seventh day of the second month the earth was completely dry.
15 And God speaketh unto Noah, saying, `Go out from the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee; 15 Then God said to Noah,
16 every living thing that [is] with thee, of all flesh, among fowl, and among cattle, and among every creeping thing which is creeping on the earth, bring out with thee; 16 "Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
17 and they have teemed in the earth, and been fruitful, and have 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 And Noah goeth 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 every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl; every creeping thing on the earth, after their families, have gone 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 buildeth an altar to Jehovah, and taketh of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and causeth burnt-offerings to ascend 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 smelleth the sweet fragrance, and Jehovah saith unto His heart, `I continue not to disesteem any more the ground because of man, though the imagination of the heart of man [is] evil from his youth; and I continue not to smite any more all living, 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 during all days of the earth, seed-time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, do not cease.' 22 "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."
