And God [earnestly] remembered Noah and every living thing and all the animals that were with him in the ark; and God made a wind blow over the land, and the waters sank down and abated.
And the waters receded from the land continually. At the end of 150 days the waters had diminished.
And the waters continued to diminish until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the high hills were seen.
Then he sent forth a dove to see if the waters had decreased from the surface of the ground.
And the dove came back to him in the evening, and behold, in her mouth was a newly sprouted and freshly plucked olive leaf! So Noah knew that the waters had subsided from the land.
