1 Recordatus autem Deus Noe cunctorumque animantium et omnium iumentorum, quae erant cum eo in arca, adduxit spiritum super terram, et imminutae sunt aquae.
2 Et clausi sunt fontes abyssi et cataractae caeli, et prohibitae sunt pluviae de caelo.
3 Reversaeque sunt aquae de terra euntes et redeuntes et coeperunt minui post centum quinquaginta dies.
4 Requievitque arca mense septimo, decima septima die mensis super montes Ararat.
5 At vero aquae ibant et decrescebant usque ad decimum mensem; decimo enim mense, prima die mensis, apparuerunt cacumina montium.
6 Cumque transissent quadraginta dies, aperiens Noe fenestram arcae, quam fecerat, dimisit corvum;
7 qui egrediebatur exiens et rediens, donec siccarentur aquae super terram.
8 Emisit quoque columbam a se, ut videret si iam cessassent aquae super faciem terrae.
9 Quae, cum non invenisset, ubi requiesceret pes eius, reversa est ad eum in arcam; aquae enim erant super universam terram. Extenditque manum et apprehensam intulit in arcam.
10 Exspectatis autem ultra septem diebus aliis, rursum dimisit columbam ex arca.
11 At illa venit ad eum ad vesperam portans ramum olivae virentibus foliis in ore suo. Intellexit ergo Noe quod cessassent aquae super terram.
12 Exspectavitque nihilominus septem alios dies; et emisit columbam, quae non est reversa ultra ad eum.
13 Igitur sescentesimo primo anno, primo mense, prima die mensis, siccatae sunt aquae super terram; et aperiens Noe tectum arcae, et ecce aspexit viditque quod exsiccata erat superficies terrae.
14 Mense secundo, septima et vicesima die mensis, arefacta est terra.
15 Locutus est autem Deus ad Noe dicens:
16 "Egredere de arca tu et uxor tua, filii tui et uxores filiorum tuorum tecum.
17 Cuncta animantia, quae sunt apud te ex omni carne, tam in volatilibus quam in pecoribus et in universis reptilibus, quae reptant super terram, educ tecum, ut pullulent super terram et crescant et multiplicentur super eam"
18 Egressus est ergo Noe et filii eius, uxor illius et uxores filiorum eius cum eo.
19 Sed et omnia animantia, iumenta, volatilia et reptilia, quae reptant super terram, secundum genus suum egressa sunt de arca.
20 Aedificavit autem Noe altare Domino; et tollens de cunctis pecoribus mundis et volucribus mundis obtulit holocausta super altare.
21 Odoratusque est Dominus odorem suavitatis et locutus est Dominus ad cor suum: "Nequaquam ultra maledicam terrae propter homines, quia cogitatio humani cordis in malum prona est ab adulescentia sua. Non igitur ultra percutiam omnem animam viventem, sicut feci.
22 Cunctis diebus terrae, sementis et messis, frigus et aestus, aestas et hiems, dies et nox non requiescent"
King James Version
1 And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;
2 The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;
3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.
4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat.
5 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.
6 ¶ And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made:
7 And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;
9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
13 ¶ And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry.
14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried.
15 ¶ And God spake unto Noah, saying,
16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee.
17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:
19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.
20 ¶ And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.
21 And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
