Genesis 8:5

5 Two and a half months later, as the waters continued to go down, other mountain peaks became visible.

Genesis 8:5 In-Context

3 So the floodwaters gradually receded from the earth. After 150 days,
4 exactly five months from the time the flood began, the boat came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.
5 Two and a half months later, as the waters continued to go down, other mountain peaks became visible.
6 After another forty days, Noah opened the window he had made in the boat
7 and released a raven. The bird flew back and forth until the floodwaters on the earth had dried up.
