f13 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.

f5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations. f6 And the sons of Ham; Cush, and Mizraim, and Phut, and Canaan.

9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.

g 10 And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.

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 great city.
