Genesis 8:19-21 Common English Bible (CEB)

19 All the animals, all the livestock,[a] all the birds, and everything crawling on the ground, came out of the ark by their families.

God’s promise for the earth

20 Noah built an altar to the Lord. He took some of the clean large animals and some of the clean birds, and placed entirely burned offerings on the altar. 21 The Lord smelled the pleasing scent, and the Lord thought to himself, I will not curse the fertile land anymore because of human beings since the ideas of the human mind are evil from their youth. I will never again destroy every living thing as I have done.


  1. Genesis 8:19 LXX; MT lacks all the livestock.
