Genesis 8:11

Καὶ ἀνέστρεψεν πρὸς αὐτὸν ἡ περιστερὰ τὸ πρὸς ἑσπέραν, καὶ εἶχεν φύλλον ἐλαίας κάρφος ἐν τῷ στόματι αὐτῆς· καὶ ἔγνω Νῶε ὅτι κεκόπακεν τὸ ὕδωρ ἀπὸ τῆς γῆς.

And the dove returned to him in the evening, and it had a sprig of olive leaf in its mouth; and Noe knew that the water had abated from the earth.

ותבא אליו היונה לעת ערב והנה עלה־זית טרף בפיה וידע נח כי־קלו המים מעל הארץ׃


* sprig (a small stem bearing leaves or flowers) OR dry twig
* abated OR ceased
