And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant1 I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:213
I have set my rainbow3 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 rainbow4 appears in the clouds,
I will remember my covenant5 between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.616
Whenever the rainbow7 appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant8 between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."
So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant9 I have established between me and all life on the earth."
The sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem, Ham and Japheth.10 (Ham was the father of Canaan.)1119
These were the three sons of Noah,12 and from them came the people who were scattered over the earth.1320
Noah, a man of the soil, proceededa to plant a vineyard.
When he drank some of its wine,14 he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent.
Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness15 and told his two brothers outside.
