New Living Translation (NLT) New International Version (NIV)
8 Then God told Noah and his sons, 8 Then God said to Noah and to his sons with him:
9 "I am making a covenant with you and your descendants, 9 "I now establish my covenant with you and with your descendants after you
10 and with the animals you brought with you -- all these birds and livestock and wild animals. 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 I solemnly promise never to send another flood to kill all living creatures and 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, "I am giving you a sign as evidence of my eternal covenant with you and all living creatures. 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 have placed my rainbow in the clouds. It is the sign of my permanent promise to you and to all 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 When I send clouds over the earth, the rainbow will be seen in the clouds, 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds,
15 and I will remember my covenant with you and with everything that lives. Never again will there be a flood that will destroy all life. 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 When I see the rainbow in the clouds, I will remember the eternal covenant between God and every living creature on 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 Then God said to Noah, "Yes, this is the sign of my covenant with all the creatures of 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."
