GENESIS 8

KING JAMES VERSION (KJV)

STRONG'S CONCORDANCE

WORDS OF GOD IN RED

Chapter Summary

God causes the wind to blow and the rain to decrease and the flood waters then recede. Noah's ark comes to rest on the mountains of Ararat (present-day Turkey and Armenia) on the seventeenth day of the seventh month of Noah's 600th year. On the first day of the tenth month, the tops of the mountains are seen. Noah sends out both a raven and a dove to determine if there exists habitable land yet. Eventually the dove returns with an olive leaf indicating new life. On the 27th day of the second month of Noah's 601st year, God tells Noah to leave the ark with his family and the animals and for all to breed abundantly and multiply. Noah builds an altar and makes burnt offerings of every clean animal to God. When God smells the offerings he says in his heart he will no longer curse the ground "for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth" (Gen 8:21). God also says that while the earth remains, farming, weather, seasons and "day and night shall not cease." (Gen 8:22)
