They disembark

Then God said to Noah, “Come out of the ark, you yourself, your wife,
your sons, and your sons’ wives with you. As for all the animals with you,
all things of flesh, whether birds or animals or reptiles that crawl on the earth,
bring them out with you. Let them swarm on the earth; let them be fruitful
and multiply on the earth.” So Noah went out with his sons, his wife, and his
sons’ wives. And all the wild beasts, all the cattle, all the birds and all
the reptiles that crawl on the earth went out from the ark, one kind after
another.
Noah built an altar for Yahweh, and choosing from all the clean animals
and all the clean birds he offered burnt offerings on the altar. Yahweh smelled
the appeasing fragrance and said to himself, “Never again will I curse the earth
because of man, because his heart contrives evil from his infancy. Never again
will I strike down every living thing as I have done.

“As long as earth lasts,
sowing and reaping,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
shall cease no more.”

Genesis 8:15-22
