Then Godspoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying,
"Now behold, 1I Myself do establish My covenant with you, and with your adescendantsafter you;
and with everylivingcreature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and everybeast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark, even everybeast of the earth.
"I establish My covenant with you; and allflesh shall 2neveragain be cutoff by the water of the flood, 3neither shall there again be a flood to destroy the earth."
12Godsaid, "This is 4the sign of the covenantwhich I am makingbetween Me and you and everylivingcreature that is with you, for ballsuccessivegenerations;
I set My 5bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a sign of a covenantbetween Me and the earth.
"It shall come about, when I bring a cloudover the earth, that the bow will be seen in the cloud,
and 6I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and everylivingcreature of allflesh; and 7neveragain shall the waterbecome a flood to destroyallflesh.
"When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the 8everlastingcovenantbetweenGod and everylivingcreature of allflesh that is on the earth."
And Godsaid to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenantwhich I have establishedbetween Me and allflesh that is on the earth."
