9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned to him into the ark; for the waters [were] on the face of the whole earth. Then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in to him into the ark.
10 And he stayed yet other seven days, and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
11 And the dove came in to him in the evening, and lo, in her mouth [was] an olive-leaf plucked off: So Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.
12 And he stayed yet other seven days, and sent forth the dove; which returned not again to him any more.
13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first [month], the first [day] of the month, the waters were dried from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dry.
