But the dove could find no place to set its feet because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark.
"When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth." -
"Then he reached out his hand and took the knife to slay his son." -
"By the first day of the first month of Noah's six hundred and first year, the water had dried up from the earth. Noah then removed the covering from the ark and saw that the surface of the ground was dry." -
"The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water." -
"Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree." -
