Genesis 8:19-21 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every bird, everything that moves on the earth, went out [a]by their families from the ark.

20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 21 The Lord smelled the soothing aroma; and the Lord said [b]to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the [c]intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again [d]destroy every living thing, as I have 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.
