I have set my rainbow1 in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow2 appears in the clouds,
I will remember my covenant3 between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.416
Whenever the rainbow5 appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant6 between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."
