Genesis 8

When the rain stopped, the wind blew and the water receded, but the arc drifted until July 17th when it ran aground at the top of Mt. Ararat. Noah sent out a bird once a week, first a raven then a dove, and when the dove didn't return, he knew there must have been dry ground in the area. On New Year's day Noah removed the roof of the arc, and on February 27th, the day everyone got off the arc, Noah built an alter to the Lord, burning several clean animals and birds, which smelled so good God said,

"As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease."
