The waters asswage.
Genesis 8:1 And God remembred Noe & al the beastes & al the catel that were with him in the arck. And God made a wynde to blowe vpon the erth, & the waters ceased: Genesis 8:2 & the fountaynes of the depe & the wyndowes of heauen were stopte, & the rayne of heauen was forbydden, Genesis 8:3 & the waters returned from of the erth, & abated after the end of an hundred and .l. dayes.
The ark resteth on Ararat.
Genesis 8:4 And the arcke rested vpon the mountains of Ararat, the .xvij. daye of the .vij. moneth. Genesis 8:5 And the waters went awaye, & decreased vntyll the .x. moneth. And the fyrst day of the .x. moneth, þe toppes of the mounteyns appered.

Genesis 8:7 and sent forth a rauen, which went out, euer goynge & commynge agayne, vntyl the waters were dryed vp vpon the earth. Genesis 8:8 Then sent he forth a doue from him, to wete whether the waters were fallen from of the earth. Genesis 8:9 And when the doue could finde no restyng place for hyr fote, she returned to him agayne vnto the arcke, for the waters were vpon the face of al the earth. And he put out hys hande, and toke hyr, and pulled hyr to hym into the Arcke. Genesis 8:10 And he abode yet seuen daies more, & sent out the doue agayne oute of the arcke, Genesis 8:11 & the doue came to him agayne about euentyde, & beholde, there was in hyr mouth a lefe of an olyue tre whyche she had plucked: whereby Noe perceiued that the waters were abated vpon the earth. Genesis 8:12 And he taried yet seuen other dayes, and sent forth the doue, whyche from thence forth came no more agayne to hym.
Genesis 8:13 And it came to passe, the sixe hundred and one yere & the fyrst day of the fyrste moneth, that the waters were dried vp vpon þe earth. And Noe toke of the hatches of the arcke, & loked: and beholde, the face of the earth was drye. Genesis 8:14 So by the .xxvij. day of the second moneth the earth was drye.

Genesis 8:21 And the Lorde smelled a swete sauour, & sayd in his hert: I wyll henceforth no more cursse the earthe for mans sake, for the imagination of mans herte is euyll, euen from the very youth of him. Moreouer I wyl not destroy from henceforthe all that lyueth as I haue done.
