Bible: Gen 9:12-17

9:12 And God said, “This is the guarantee 1  of the covenant I am making 2  with you 3  and every living creature with you, a covenant 4  for all subsequent 5  generations: 9:13 I will place 6  my rainbow 7  in the clouds, and it will become 8  a guarantee of the covenant between me and the earth. 9:14 Whenever 9  I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 9:15 then I will remember my covenant with you 10  and with all living creatures of all kinds. 11  Never again will the waters become a flood and destroy 12  all living things. 13  9:16 When the rainbow is in the clouds, I will notice it and remember 14  the perpetual covenant between God and all living creatures of all kinds that are on the earth.”

9:17 So God said to Noah, “This is the guarantee of the covenant that I am confirming between me and all living things 15  that are on the earth.”
