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.
17 “Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you, birds and animals and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, that they may 1abreed abundantly on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.”
19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the earth, went out 1by their families from the ark.
21 The Lord asmelled the soothing aroma; and the Lord said 1to Himself, “I will never again bcurse the ground on account of man, for cthe 2intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; dand I will never again 3destroy every living thing, as I have done.
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And asummer and winter,
And bday and night
Shall not cease.”
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
