Genesis 8:19-21 International Standard Version (ISV)

19 Every animal, every crawling thing, every flying creature, and everything that moves on the earth emerged from the ark by groups.[a]

20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings on it[b] from every clean animal and every clean bird. 21 When the Lord smelled the pleasing aroma, he told himself, “I will never again curse the land because of human beings—even though human inclinations remain evil from youth—nor will I destroy every living being ever again, as I’ve done.

Genesis 8:19-21 New International Version (NIV)

19 All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds—everything that moves on land—came out of the ark, one kind after another.

20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and, taking some of all the clean animals and clean birds, he sacrificed burnt offerings on it. 21 The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma and said in his heart: “Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though[a] every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.
