Bible: Genesis 8:20-22

8:20 Noah built an altar to the Lord. He then took some of every kind of clean animal and clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. 1  8:21 And the Lord smelled the soothing aroma 2  and said 3  to himself, 4 I will never again curse 5  the ground because of humankind, even though 6  the inclination of their minds 7  is evil from childhood on. 8  I will never again destroy everything that lives, as I have just done.

8:22While the earth continues to exist, 9 

planting time 10  and harvest,

cold and heat,

summer and winter,

and day and night will not cease.”
