Genesis 8:19-21 Living Bible (TLB)

18-19 So the boat was soon empty. Noah, his wife, and his sons and their wives all disembarked, along with all the animals, reptiles, and birds—all left the ark in pairs and groups.

20 Then Noah built an altar and sacrificed on it some of the animals and birds God had designated[a] for that purpose. 21 And Jehovah was pleased with the sacrifice[b] and said to himself, “I will never do it again—I will never again curse the earth, destroying all living things, even though man’s bent is always toward evil from his earliest youth, and even though he does such wicked things.


  1. Genesis 8:20 some of the animals and birds God had designated, literally, “clean,” i.e., ritually approved by God.
  2. Genesis 8:21 And Jehovah was pleased with the sacrifice, literally, “And Jehovah smelled the delicious odor.”
