Genesis 8:1-7 RSV

1 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;
2 the fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, the rain from the heavens was restrained,
3 and the waters receded from the earth continually. At the end of a hundred and fifty days the waters had abated;
4 and in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, the ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ar'arat.
5 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.
6 At the end of forty days Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made,
7 and sent forth a raven; and it went to and fro until the waters were dried up from the earth.
