And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that were with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters subsided;
And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen.
Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was a plucked off olive leaf: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
