Genesis 8:19-21 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, all that moveth upon the earth, after their kinds, went out of the Ark.

20 ¶ Then Noah [a]built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings upon the altar.

21 And the Lord smelled a [b][c]savor of rest, and the Lord said in his heart, I will henceforth curse the ground no more for man’s cause: for the imagination of man’s heart is evil, even from his youth: neither will I smite anymore all things living, as I have done.


  1. Genesis 8:20 For sacrifices which were as an exercise of their faith, whereby they used to give thanks to God for his benefits.
  2. Genesis 8:21 Or, sweet savor.
  3. Genesis 8:21 That is, thereby he showeth himself appeased and his anger to rest.
