Genesis 8 – The Deluge Part 3 – The Raven Returns

Dear Reader,

I realize fake cartier bracelets
it has been a while since I wrote to you. I recently started a new job, and now that I am at least temporarily acclimatized, I will take this opportunity to return to the tale of Noah.


Chapter 8 provides further details of the story, and how the ark came how much is a cartier love bracelet 2013
to rest on dry land.

  • The waters abated after 150 days
  • The ark came to rest upon the mountains of Ararat on the 17th day of the seventh month of Noah’s 600th year
  • The waters continue to assuage (lessen). After abating until the first day of the 10th month the tops of mountains were seen.
  • Another 40 days passed and then a raven was released and that raven went “forth to and fro until the waters were dried up.”
  • Beginning that same day, the dove was released, and the dove returned. On a weekly basis, that same dove continued to be released and that dove continued to return until it had found dry land.
  • On the first day of the first month of Noah`s 601st year, Noah removed the covering of the ark.
  • On the 20th day of the second month of Noah`s 601st year the earth was dried and the creatures of the ark were set free to once again “breed abundantly” upon the earth.
  • Shortly thereafter Noah built an altar on which he and his family sacrificed one of every clean beast and fowl, and God smelled a “sweet savour.”
  • God, feeling a little contrite, vows to never again “smite any more every thing living, as I have done.”
