I set My 1bow 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 2I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and everylivingcreature of allflesh; and 3neveragain shall the waterbecome a flood to destroyallflesh.
"When the bow is in the cloud, then I will look upon it, to remember the 4everlastingcovenantbetweenGod 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."
Now the sons of Noah who came out of the ark were Shem and Ham and Japheth; and 5Ham was the father of Canaan.
19Thesethree were the sons of Noah, and 6from these the wholeearth was apopulated.
Then Noahbeganbfarming and planted a vineyard.
He drank of the wine and 7becamedrunk, and uncovered himself inside his tent.
22Ham, the father of Canaan, 8saw the nakedness of his father, and told his twobrothersoutside.
But Shem and Japhethtook a garment and laid it upon both their shoulders and walkedbackward and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were cturnedaway, so that they did not see their father'snakedness.
