    SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:7

    y envió al cuervo, el cual salió, y estuvo yendo y tornando hasta que las aguas se secaron de sobre la tierra.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Genesis 8:7

    Verse 7. He sent forth a
    raven, which went forth to and fro] It is generally supposed that the raven flew off, and was seen no more, but this meaning the Hebrew text will not bear; awxy axyw bww vaiyetse yatso vashob, and it went forth, going forth and returning. From which it is evident that she did return, but was not taken into the ark. She made frequent excursions, and continued on the wing as long as she could, having picked up such aliment as she found floating on the waters; and then, to rest herself, regained the ark, where she might perch, though she was not admitted. Indeed this must be allowed, as it is impossible she could have continued twenty one days upon the wing, which she must have done had she not returned. But the text itself is sufficiently determinate.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 4-12 - The
    ark rested upon a mountain, whither it was directed by the wise an gracious providence of God, that might rest the sooner. God has time and places of rest for his people after their tossing; and many time he provides for their seasonable and comfortable settlement, withou their own contrivance, and quite beyond their own foresight. God ha told Noah when the flood would come, yet he did not give him an accoun by revelation, at what times and by what steps it should go away. The knowledge of the former was necessary to his preparing the ark; but the knowledge of the latter would serve only to gratify curiosity; an concealing it from him would exercise his faith and patience. Noah sen forth a raven from the ark, which went flying about, and feeding on the carcasses that floated. Noah then sent forth a dove, which returned the first time without good news; but the second time, she brought an oliv leaf in her bill, plucked off, plainly showing that trees, fruit trees began to appear above water. Noah sent forth the dove the second time seven days after the first, and the third time was after seven day also; probably on the sabbath day. Having kept the sabbath with his little church, he expected especial blessings from Heaven, and inquire concerning them. The dove is an emblem of a gracious soul, that finding no solid peace of satisfaction in this deluged, defiling world returns to Christ as to its ark, as to its Noah, its rest. The defiling world, returns to Christ as to its ark, as to its Noah, its rest. The carnal heart, like the raven, takes up with the world, and feeds on the carrion it finds there; but return thou to my rest, O my soul; to the Noah, so the word is, Ps 116:7. And as Noah put forth his hand, an took the dove, and pulled her to him, into the ark, so Christ wil save, and help, and welcome those that flee to him for rest. (God 8:13-19)
