5 The waters receded continually until the tenth month. In the tenth month, on the first day of the month, the tops of the mountains were seen.
6 It happened at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had made,
7 and he sent forth a raven. It went back and forth, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.
8 He sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the surface of the ground,
9 but the dove found no place to rest her foot, and she returned to him into the ark; for the waters were on the surface of the whole earth. He put forth his hand, and took her, and brought her to him into the ark.
