CLV(i) 1 Now mindful is the Elohim of Noah and every living animal and every beast and every flyer and every moving animal which is with him in the ark. And the Elohim is causing a wind to pass over the earth, and subsiding are the waters. 2 And being held in check are the springs of the submerged chaos and the crevices of the heavens, and being shut up is the downpour from the heavens, 3 and returning are the waters off the earth, going and returning. And abating are the waters at the end of one hundred and fifty days. 4 And resting is the ark in the seventh month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, on the mountains of Ararat. 5 And the waters came to go and abate until the tenth month. In the eleventh month, on day one of the month, appear the heads of the mountains. 6 And it is coming, at the end of forty days, that opening is Noah a porthole of the ark which he had made, 7 and sending out is he a raven to see if the waters are slight. And forth is it faring, to fare forth and not to return till the drying of the water off the land. 8 And sending out is he a dove from him after it, to see if the waters are slight over the surface of the ground. 9 Yet not find does the dove a resting place for the sole of her foot, and she is returning to him to the ark, for the water is on the surface of the entire earth. And stretching forth is he his hand and taking her, and is bringing her to him into the ark. 10 And waiting is he further another seven days. And proceeding is he to send out the dove from the ark. 11 And coming is the dove to him at eventide, and behold! A torn-off olive leaf is in its beak! And knowing is Noah that the waters are slight above the earth. 12 And waiting is he further another seven days, and once more is sending out the dove, yet not any more to return to him further. 13 And coming is it, in the year six hundred and one of Noah's life, in the first month, on day one of the month, drained are the waters off the earth. And away is Noah taking the covering of the ark, which he had made, and seeing is he, and behold! Drained are the waters from the surface of the ground. 14 And in the second month on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the earth is dry. 15 And speaking is Yahweh Elohim to Noah, saying, 16 Fare forth from the ark, you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with you. 17 And every living thing which is with you of all flesh, of flyer, and of beast, and of every moving animal moving on the earth, bring forth with you. They also are to roam in the earth, and to be fruitful, and increase on the earth. 18 And forth is faring Noah, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him. 19 And every living thing and every beast, and every flyer, and every moving animal moving on the earth, by their families they fare forth from the ark. 20 And building is Noah an altar to Yahweh Elohim, and taking is he of every clean beast, and of every clean flyer, and is offering up ascent offerings on the altar. 21 And smelling is Yahweh Elohim a restful smell. And saying is Yahweh Elohim to His heart, "Not any more will I slight further the ground for the sake of humanity, for the form of the human heart is evil from its youth. Neither again will I smite further all living flesh, as I have done. 22 In the future, all the days of the earth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and warmth, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
