Book of Genesis  Chapter 8

The flood abates

GENESIS 8:1  And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle  that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and  the waters asswaged;

GENESIS 8:2  The fountains also of the deep and the windows of heaven were  stopped, and the rain from heaven was restrained;

GENESIS 8:3  And the waters returned from off the earth continually: and after the  end of the hundred and fifty days the waters were abated.

GENESIS 8:4  And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the  month, upon the mountains of Ararat.

GENESIS 8:5  And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the  tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains  seen.

GENESIS 8:6  And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened the  window of the ark which he had made:

GENESIS 8:7  And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the  waters were dried up from off the earth.

GENESIS 8:8  Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated  from off the face of the ground;

GENESIS 8:9  But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned  unto 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 unto him into the  ark.

GENESIS 8:10  And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove  out of the ark;

GENESIS 8:11  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.

GENESIS 8:12  And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which  returned not again unto him any more.

GENESIS 8:13  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 up from off the  earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the  face of the ground was dry.

GENESIS 8:14  And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day of the month,  was the earth dried.

GENESIS 8:15  And God spake unto Noah, saying,

GENESIS 8:16  Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons'  wives with thee.

GENESIS 8:17  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.

GENESIS 8:18  And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives  with him:

GENESIS 8:19  Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and whatsoever  creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.

GENESIS 8:20  And Noah builded an altar unto the LORD; and took of every clean  beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

GENESIS 8:21  And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD 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.

GENESIS 8:22  While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and  heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

The bible and Zionism

The bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, accepted by the three major Western faiths and a major work of Western civilization, documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
