Then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. J 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 pluckt 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 unto him any more. f 13. T 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 up from off the earth; and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dry. 14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month, was the earth dried. 15 T And God spake unto Noah, saying, 16 Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee. d 17 Bring forth with thee every living thing that is with thee, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing
that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth. 18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him: 19 Every beast, every creepi thing, and every fowl, and . soever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark. 20 T And Noah builded an altar unto the Lond, and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt-offerings on the altar. t 21 And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Loftn said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth: neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done. r 22 While the earth remaineth, seed-time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, shall not cease. CHAP. IX. b ND God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply. and replenish the earth. r 2 And the fear of you, and the dread of you, shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. b 3 Every moving thing that liveth shall he meat for you; even as the green * have I given you all things. p 4 I But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof shall ye not eat. 5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require: at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand *: at the 1
hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.
to 6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he
man. 7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply ; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply there1n. 8 T And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, b 9 And I, behold I, establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you, from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood ; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 12 And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations. 13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. r 14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud : 15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you, and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. b 16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 17 And God said unto Noah,
This is the token of the covenan which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth. f 18 7 And the sons of Noah that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham is the father of Canaan. 19 These are the three sons of Noah : and of them was the whole earth overspread. 20 And Noah began to be a husbandman, and he planted a vineyard : p 21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken ; and he was uncovered within his tent. 22 And Ham, the father of Camaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. d 23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father : and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. 24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. wn 25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. b 26 And he said, Blessed be the LoRD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. r 27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem ; and Canaan shall be his servant. f 23 " And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years. 29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.

Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one in the earth. 9 He was a mighty hunter before the Lord : wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lonn. 10 And the beginning of his fio, was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shimar. g 11 Out of that land went forth Asshur, and builded Nineveh, and the city Rehoboth, and Calah, g 12 And Resen between Nineveh and Calah: the same is a at city.

g 19 Amd the border of the Camaamites was from Sidon, as thou comest to Gerar, unto Gaza; as thou goest unto Sodom and Gomorrah, and Admah, and Zeboim. even unto Lasha. 20 These are the sons of Ham. after their families, after their tongues, in their countries, and in their nations. f21 " Unto Shem also, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder, even to him were children born 22 The children of Shem : Elam, and Asshur, and Arphaxad, and Lud, and Aram. 23 And the claildren of Aram ; Uz, and Hul, and Gether, and Mash. 24 And Arphaxad begat Salah; and Salah begat Eber. fo And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days was the earth divided ; and his brother's name was Joktan. 26 And Joktan begat Almodad, and Sheleph, and Hazarmaveth. and Jerall, 27 And Hadoram, and Diklah, 28 And Obal, and Abimael, and Sheba, 29 And Ophir, and Havilah. and Jobab: all these were the sons of Joktan. g 30 And their dwelling was from Mesha, as thou goest unto Sephar, a mount of the east. 31 These are the sons of Shem, after their families, after their tongues, in their lands, after their nations. 32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.

And they said, Go to, let us build us a city, and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.
5 And the Lorin came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
abroad from thence upon the face
of all the earth: and they left off to build the city. g 9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel, because the Lorn did there consound the language of all the carth : and from thence did the Lok D scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth. if 10 || These are the generations of Shem: Shem was a hundred years old, and begat Arphaxad two years after the flood : f11 And Shem lived after he begat Arphaxad five hundred years, and begat sons and daughters. f 12 And Arphaxad lived five and thirty years, and begat Salah. 13 And Arphaxad lived asterhe begat Salah four hundred and three years, and begat sons and daughters. f 14 And Salah lived thirty years, and begat Eber:
