I'm setting up my covenant with you that never again will everything living be destroyed by floodwaters; no, never again will a flood destroy the Earth."
God continued, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and everything living around you and everyone living after you.
I'm putting my rainbow in the clouds, a sign of the covenant between me and the Earth.
From now on, when I form a cloud over the Earth and the rainbow appears in the cloud,
I'll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will floodwaters destroy all life.
When the rainbow appears in the cloud, I'll see it and remember the eternal covenant between God and everything living, every last living creature on Earth."
And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I've set up between me and everything living on the Earth."

Noah, a farmer, was the first to plant a vineyard.
He drank from its wine, got drunk and passed out, naked in his tent.
