Bereishit (Genesis) 7:17-8:14

17When the Flood was on Earth forty days, the waters increased and raised the Ark so that it was lifted above the Earth. 18The waters strengthened and increased greatly upon the Earth, and the Ark drifted upon the surface of the waters. 19The waters strengthened very much upon the Earth, all the high mountains which are under the entire heavens were covered. 20Fifteen cubits upward did the waters strengthen, and the mountains were covered. 21And all flesh that moves upon the Earth expired—among the birds, animals, the beasts, and all the creeping things that creep upon the Earth, and all mankind. 22All in whose nostrils was the breath of the Spirit of life, of everything that was on dry land, died. 23And he blotted out all existence that was on the face of the ground—from man to animals to creeping things and to the birds of the heavens; and they were blotted out from the Earth. Only Noah survived, and those with him in the ark. 24And the waters strengthened on the Earth one hundred and fifty days.

Chapter 8

1G-d remembered Noah all the beasts and all the animals that were with him in the Ark, and G-d caused a spirit to pass over the Earth, and the waters subsided. 2The fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, and the rain from heaven was restrained of the deep and the windows of the heavens were closed, and the rain from heaven was restrained. 3The waters then receded from upon the Earth reseeding continuously and the waters diminished at the end of hundred and fifty days. 4And the Ark came to rest in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountain of Ararat. 5The waters were continuously diminishing until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first of the month, the tops of the mountains became visible.

6And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the Ark which he had made. 7He sent out the Raven, and it kept going and returning until the water dried from upon the Earth. 8Then he sent out, the dove from him to see whether the waters had subsided from the face of the ground. 9But the dove could not find a resting place for the sole of its foot, and he returned to him to the Ark, for water was upon the surface of the earth. So he put forth his hand, and took it, and brought it to him to the Ark. 10He waited again another seven days, and again he sent out the dove from the Ark. 11The dove came back to him in the evening—and behold! an olive leaf it had plucked with its bill! And Noah knew that the waters had subsided from upon the Earth. 12Then he waited again another seven days and sent the dove forth; and it did not return to him anymore.

13And it came to pass in the six hundred and first year, in the first month, on the first of the month, the waters dried up from upon the Earth; Noah removed the covering of the Ark, and looked—and behold! the surface of the ground had dried. 14And in the second month, on the twenty-seventh day of the month, the Earth was fully dried.
