The word “Ararat” is cited four times in the Bible.
The most famous biblical passage involving Ararat is found in the book Genesis and involves the Flood descriptions that hist Earth during Noah’s time.
According to the biblical text (Gen. 8:4), it was in the mountains of Ararat where Noah’s Ark rested after the waters of the Flood subsided, and then, there, humanity started a new beginning.
In the same way, Ararat Safe Harbor – A New Beginning arrives here, bringing a new start for so many stories.
“And on the seventeenth day of the seventh month, the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat.” Genesis 8:4 NIV
8 Then he sent out a dove to see if the water had receded from the surface of the ground.
9 But the dove could find nowhere to perch because there was water over all the surface of the earth; so it returned to Noah in the ark. He reached out his hand and took the dove and brought it back to himself in the ark.
10 He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark.
11 When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. Gênesis 8:8-11
