Noah built an altar to the LORD. On it he made a burnt offering of each type of clean animal and clean bird.
The LORD smelled the soothing aroma. He said to himself, "I will never again curse the ground because of humans, even though from birth their hearts are set on nothing but evil. I will never again kill every living creature as I have just done.
As long as the earth exists, planting and harvesting, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never stop."
