8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying , 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you; 9 "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you
10 And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. 10 and with every living creature that was with you--the birds, the livestock and all the wild animals, all those that came out of the ark with you--every living creature on earth.
11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. 11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be cut off by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth."
12 And 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: 12 And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:
13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
15 And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.
16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it , that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. 16 Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth."
17 And God said unto Noah, This is the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth. 17 So God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth."
