But God remembered Noah and all the beasts and all the cattle that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind blow over the earth, and the waters subsided;
the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained,
and the waters receded from the earth continually. At the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters had abated;
and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ar'arat.
And the waters continued to abate until the tenth month; in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
At the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made,
and sent forth a raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth.
