Everlasting Rest: Sabbaths Old and New – The Lord’s Day Covenant Till the Unending Day of Glory

"For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the Earth….   And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the Earth."   Later, on the sabbath-day, the "the ark rested on the seventeenth day of the seventh month upon the mountains of Ararat."  

On the eleventh day of the eleventh month, a weekly sabbath-day, Noah sent forth a raven from the ark.   One week later, he sent forth a dove, to see if the waters had come to rest.   Then Noah "stayed yet another seven days" and sent forth the dove which returned with an olive-leaf in her mouth so that Noah knew the waters had come to rest.   "Then Noah stayed yet another seven days, and sent forth the dove again."
