God spoke to Noach, and to his sons with him, saying,
"As for me, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you,
and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every animal of the eretz with you. Of all that go out of the teivah, even every animal of the eretz.
I will establish my covenant with you; neither will all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither will there any more be a flood to destroy the eretz."
God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the eretz.
It will happen, when I bring a cloud over the eretz, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud,
and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the eretz."
God said to Noach, "This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the eretz."
