3 and the water receded steadily from the earth, and at the end aof one hundred and fifty days the water decreased.
4 In the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, athe ark rested upon the mountains of Ararat.
6 Then it came about at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the awindow of the ark which he had made;
9 but the dove found no resting place for the sole of her foot, so she returned to him into the ark, for the water was on the 1surface of all the earth. Then he put out his hand and took her, and brought her into the ark to himself.
12 Then he waited yet another seven days, and sent out athe dove; but she did not return to him again.
13 Now it came about in the asix hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, the water was dried up 1from the earth. Then Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the 2surface of the ground was dried up.
