What does Genesis 9:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 9:12

And God said, this is the token of the covenant which I
make between me and you

generations;
which more clearly shows and proves, that this covenant reaches to all creatures that then were, or should be in all ages, to the end of the world.
