When the waters had receded for a time, Noah released a raven and a dove who could find no place yet to land. After a while, he then released a dove who returned with an olive leaf, indicating some vegetation showing. After a further week's wait, the dove did not return. Noah removed the ark's covering, and left the ark with his family when God instructed him to. He released the animals, built an altar, and offered burnt offerings to God.
