6 The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved [a]in His heart.7 The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the [b]sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.”8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
6 Then it came about at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made;7 and he sent out a raven, and it [a]flew here and there until the water was dried up [b]from the earth.8 Then he sent out a dove from him, to see if the water was abated from the face of the land;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 [c]surface of all the earth. Then he put out his hand and took her, and brought her into the ark to himself.10 So he waited yet another seven days; and again he sent out the dove from the ark.11 The dove came to him toward [d]evening, and behold, in her [e]beak was a freshly picked olive leaf. So Noah knew that the water was abated from the earth.12 Then he waited yet another seven days, and sent out the dove; but she did not return to him again.
