The Story Of Noah
So after being in that floating Ark for 1 year & 17 days "Noah removed the covering of the Ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was dry." (Gen.8:13)
-"Let's open the door of the Ark and let all animals loose now, shall we?"
-"No, Shem! God will tell us when! He may need a little more time to grow enough plants & grass to feed the animals before we let them all out!"
