“And he sent forth a Rauen, which went foorth to and fro, vntill the waters were dried vp from off the earth.”
King James Version (KJV)
4. And the Arke rested in the seuenth moneth, on the seuenteenth day of the moneth, vpon the mountaines of Ararat. 5. And the waters decreased continually vntill the tenth moneth: in the tenth moneth, on the first day of the moneth, were the tops of the mountaines seene. 6. ¶ And it came to passe at the end of forty dayes, that Noah opened the window of the Arke which he had made. 7. And he sent forth a Rauen, which went foorth to and fro, vntill the waters were dried vp from off the earth. 8. Also hee sent foorth a doue from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground. 9. But the doue found no rest for the sole of her foote, and she returned vnto him into the Arke: for the waters were on the face of the whole earth. Then he put foorth his hand, and tooke her, and pulled her in vnto him, into the Arke. 10. And hee stayed yet other seuen dayes; and againe hee sent foorth the doue out of the Arke.
