The Book of Genesis Chapter 8 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 8. Then God remembered Noah and every Living thing and all the animals that Were with him in the ark And God made a wind to pass over the Earth And the waters subsided The Fountains of the deep and the Windows of Heaven were also stopped and The rain from heaven was restrained And the waters receded continually from The Earth At the end of the 150 days the waters Decreased Then the ark rested in the seventh month The 17th day of the month on the Mountains of Ararat And the waters decreased continually Until the tenth month In the tenth month on the first day of The month the tops of the mountains were Seen So it came to pass at the end of 40 days That Noah opened the window of the Ark Which he had made Then he sent out a raven which kept Going to and fro until the waters had Dried up from the Earth He also sent out from himself a dove to See if the waters had receded from the Face of the ground But the dove found no resting place for The soul of her foot and she returned Into the ark to him for the waters were

On the face of the whole Earth So he put out his hand and took her and Drew her into the ark to himself And he waited yet another seven days and Again he sent the dove out from the ark Then the Dove came to him in the evening And behold A freshly plucked olive leaf was in her Mouth And Noah knew that the waters had Receded from the Earth So he waited yet another seven days and Sent out the dove which did not return Again to him anymore And it came to pass in the 601st year in The first month the first day of the Month That the waters would dried up from the Earth And Noah removed the covering of the Ark And looked And indeed the surface of the ground was Dry And in the second month on the 27th day Of the month the Earth was dried Then God spoke to Noah saying Go out of the Ark you and your wife and Your sons and your son's wives with you Bring out with you every living thing of All Flesh that is with you birds and Cattle and every creeping thing that Creeps on the Earth So that they may abound on the earth and Be fruitful and multiply on the Earth

So Noah went out and his sons and his Wife and his son's wives with him Every animal every creeping thing every Bird and whatever creeps on the Earth According to their families went out of The Ark Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and Took of every clean animal and of every Clean bird and offered burnt offerings On the altar And the Lord smelled a soothing aroma Then the Lord said in his heart I will never again curse the ground for Man's sake although the imagination of Man's heart is evil from his youth Nor will I again destroy every living Thing as I have done While the Earth remains seedtime and Harvest cold and heat winter and summer And day and night Shall not cease
